Ok, I recently purchased a few GTX 460's. They have the twin PCI-E plug receptacles. My PSU has a number of PCI-E plugs.
Here is the part I do not understand:
The diagram that came with the GTX 460 card shows that one of the plugs should not have 6 wires, but only 5 wires [the top center wire is supposed to be not there.
Please see my attachments for a closer look.
Is there a different way to power up the GTX 460? *The diagram on the instructions were a bit strange. *It appeared as if on of the plugs should be a little different than the other!
This sure is looking more and more confusing. The diagram shows two very different male PCI-E plugs:
One plug is an 8 prong plug [what is that]?
The other plug is a 6 prong plug with the top center wire missing [what is that]?
The card obviously only receives two 6-pin male plugs
Ok, hoping to find some answers...
Can anyone here explain to me what type of plug that is and why one wire is missing?
