It should 'just work'.

Power draw on the x800xl is lower than other r420 based products so you don't need the molex.

The connector you are looking at is for audio or something like that I believe.


Consider thumbnailing your pic using imageshack or some other online free tool. Makes it easier to navigate your post :)

My x800xl does not use a secondary power cable.

There is a small tan connector near the heatsink but the manual does not say anything about it. It is probably a test connector.

My video came up first try just plugging it into the MB. Are you sure you have the monitor plugged into the Primary display connector on the back, not into the Secondary?

Does the Bios POST screen at least come up?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
