2 years ago#1
Just bought the pay in question and it is for my current set ups but I have a question. apparently this psu can't do cross fire at all? if that so I should return it and go for the thermal take tr2 600w? I'm looking for a pay that in the future can XFire 2 7870s. or should I keep the cx600m and then upgrade the 7870 to something better?

Why do you think it can't do crossfire? Crossfire 7870, at that?

Your current PSU should handle XFire just fine.

You can use Molex to 6 pin adaptors.

If your PSU is over 5 years old, you can't return it.
And why would you trade in a perfectly fine CX600M for a piece of junk Thermaltake?

my mistake my current psu is 5 years old. the cx600m is still in its original package. will using molex to 6 pin cause no problems?

Mod case so that you can put 2 PSUs in it. There, 1100W of goodness! There's room if you cut out the bottom drive bay.
