Red error led on 6970 - no display!
Card: XFX 6970 - required: 1x 6pin, 1x 8pin
Hi Guys, So i recently blew my psu up and bought a new one but this only has x2 6 pins, Connected both of these and ive noticed a red led on top of the GPU pcb. It is the left one of the 2 labled 01000* + the other is 04000.
Me and my friend are both guessing its not getting enough power from the other 6 pin where it should be an 8 pin.
The cards max power usage is 250w ( Source - GPUreview.com ) but the connections only give it a max of 225w.
