AX860i Question

Hey there,

I recently bought an AX860i and plan on installing it, and I'm also currently using a GTX560ti GPU.

Now, my current PSU is non modular, so using a modular one is new for me. My biggest concern is this - My GPU uses two six pin slots to power it, pretty standard. The cable for the AX860i is 6+2 on both ends. So, while 6 + 6 go into the GPU, how many do I plug into the PSU? 6 + 6 or 8 + 8?

Thanks in advance.

6+2 on both ends? Odd...I wonder if they did that so you did not have to worry about how the cables are plugged in.

Plug in all pins on the PSU side.

Plug in all 8 on the PSU side. I'm reasonably sure it's split on both ends so it doesn't matter which way one orients the cable.
