    PCIe Cable Power Consumption Question


    What's up ladies and gents.

    I have a question regarding PCIe power consumption for graphics cards. I've searched around and I get a very divided answer to this: Should I use a single power cable with x2 6+2 split on a GPU with slots over 8? or use two seperate 6+2 power cables? I know that the PCIe x16 slot itself give power (75w-ish?), but how much watt does each cable give exactly? I've read that one cable with a split like this is OK for a card that draw less than 215-225w, but I was looking at the Asus ROG RTX 2070 Super card and it has x2 8 slots connectors. The PSU is going to be the Corsair RMx 750w.

    Users behind using two cables says it's safer, while users behind one cable says it doesn't matter as long as the card doesn't exceed the total wattage on the cables. I'm not going to overclock. Can anyone share a light to this conundrum? Or maybe share what you're using? All help and info is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    :)

    Power Consumption

    Hello,

    We understand that you want to have a software that can track your computer's power consumption. We recommend that you visit Windows Store, and search for an app that will allow you to do so. If you don't see any from the Store, you might need to look for
    a third-party program that will allow you to track the power consumption of your PC.

    If you need help with Windows Store, kindly visit this
    page
    .

    Let us know if you have other questions.

    E71 firmware v400.21.013 power consumption

    My E71 had a problem with Garmin. Garmin was running background process (in the options it was disabled!) and i turned it off again now it's everything back to normal or even better power consumption!

    So try to find the background service with some processes listing program and you'll have the solution.
