Do you have 2 six pin cables from the power supply?

If you do they plug one into each plug on the video card.

2 6pin plugs = 2 6pin cables from PSU.

They will look like the 6 pin in this picture or the 6+2 which you just use the 6pin part.

Color can be different. No problem.

The PSU cable is made to go only one way into video card plug.

Picture below. Plug will only fit one way into video card.

Boja može biti različit. Nijedan PSU kabel je je napravio to ići jedini jednostran u video karta plug. Picture ispod. Čep htijenje jedini napadaj jednostran u video karta.
