TS140 Gaming Rig - PSU Upgrade question

Hi,

 

I am turning my TS140 into a gaming rig, it has decent amount of RAM and disks, so I am left with the task of installing new GPU - purchased a NVIDIA GTX 1050 Ti 4GB  and a Corsair CX 450W 80 Plus Bronze PSU. 

 

I have a question about the PSU, I have noticed that the cables from my existing PSU going to the MB on two connections; 

one is a 14 pin (so I have purchased a 24 -> 14 adaptor) as there is only 24 pin on the CX.

 

Another is a 4 pin connection to the MB.  I don't have the corresponding connection on my CX PSU, only a 6 + 2 pin.

 

As you can see I am no expert at this, and I am learning as go.  

 

Thanks for any help/advice you can give

Re: TS140 Gaming Rig - PSU Upgrade question

The connection you need is a ATX12V connector, while some newer motherboards use an 8 connector EPS12V connection like the one in the image below.    

 

The specs for that PSU state that it has one EPS12V/ATX12V Connector, so the connector is likely just still combined and just needs to be separated into two ATX12V connectors.    It should just pull or slide apart.

 

It may look similar to the one shown below

JDGillis, thank you so much for your reply. I did not realise you could split them apart.

Cheers
