Connecting the supplemental power connector

Last Update: 2009/07/28

The supplemental power connector is required on some graphics cards.

There are two types of power connectors on some graphics cards today, on AGP cards, it would be a standard molex connector, on PCIe cards, it will be in the form of a PCI Express connector. This needs to be plugged directly into the powersupply.

On the PCIe card, both of the molex adapters need to be plugged into the powersupply.

The picture below shows the power connector for an AGP graphics card:
