[HELP] Upgrading 1060 3GB Into A Lenovo K450

2016-11-07, 17:11 PM

Hi

I am planing on upgrading my lenovo k450.

Curent config:

                       Intel i7 (4thgen)

                       12 gb ram

                       2tb hardrive 

                       GTX 650 (Wanting to upgrade to a 1060 3GB)

                       Windows 10 (Came with 8 but upgraded to 10)

This is what im getting :1060 HERE

So i need to know if it will fit on my motherboard plus can i run it.

Also do i have to upgrade the power supply (if yes let me know which one or which pins are used)

After doing some research i loose the light and the power switch control.(do i need somesort of adapter)

Any way of keeping the switch plus light and have a new card and new powersupply if needed?

I  could do with a step to step installation guide on how to install the card without any issues.

Thanks

I actually have the 1060 6gb version on my Lenovo, it will fit (it'll be a bit tight, but it will fit...)

However, make sure you have the correct power supply for it. I had to replace my original power supply because the wattage was too low, and there were no 6 PCI-E pins to power the video card.

So what power supply did you use then (what wattage) .Did the 1060 just fit in and sat on top of the motherboard or did you use some sort of adapter?.Did you also loose the lights and the power switch?
