    Hi all

    I have just bought an ASUS ROG Strix Radeon RX580 TOP edition 8GB graphics card, which has an 8-pin power socket.

    My PSU is the Corsair TX650M which only has 4-pin connectors.

    My question is, is it ok to use two 4-pin connectors in the 8-pin socket?

    The 4+4 pin connector is the ATX12V connector, it's used for powering CPUs. Usually PCI-E power cables are either 6 pin, 8 pin or 6+2 pin.

    I looked up the manual for your PSU and it shows that you should have a 6+2pin connector and that you should have 2 of those cables.
