    ASUS Z690 formula (PD_12V_PWR) connector?

    Hi,



    Im building my new ASUS z690 formula rig and i have come across this 6pin connector "PD-12V_PWR". I don't know if this actually connects from to board to the GPU or does it connect from the board to the ATX?



    What are your thoughts?

    Cool

    Tony,
    I don't have an answer, but rather a question: What are you going to use for memory? I just got my Formula today, and this is the first build in 8 years, so I'm way behind the power curve. In fact, my last build was an Asus Maximus VI Impact, so I'm like a pig looking at a wristwatch.

    The 6 pin connector is for supplemental power from your power supply. We've reached the point where the 24-pin and 8-pin power connectors are not always enough so some motherboards now have additional connectors. It mentions "graphics" connector because it uses the same format of plug that you plug directly into your GPU. Your power supply should have an extra connector (most still do even though SLI isn't really a thing anymore).
