I'll keep looking.. someone should chime in who has experience with this card.
It comes with a plug with one end with a 4 pin connector that goes into something and the other end is split into two plugs which have two 4 pin connectors that are slots that something has to plug in to.

Yeah, as neo just mentioned and as I previously pointed out in my post, they don't have anything to do with the power supply.


Neo, care to comment on the GPU power connections?

The LEDs in the power supply light up when the power supply is turned on. There is nothing extra that needs to be connected to make them work.


Everything you need to know about where to plug in the wires to your motherboard is located in your motherboard's manual.
