I am not talking of gaming etc.
I am currently not at home for another week and my 5770 in my workstation has issues going back to some power surge here
I got a 6950 nicely in a shop, but my power supply 385 watt has only one six pin connector and it is too late to actualyl get a molex converter.
is it save to run a 6950 with only one power cable attached. This is NOT mining or gaming - it is basically only for running 2 screens for an evening. One of the 5770 memory banks has issues and the screen flickers quite a lot
Tomorrow I will get a molex adapter, then next week rebuild the complete pc (anyway due to a signifcant update - new board, cpu, ssd etc.).
Yes, I know the power supply is too weak to power the card - but in 2d mode it does not really pull that much
So, is that risky or not?
Would love to get rid of the stupid flickering for the evning while I reconfigure some of my servers
