It takes 2 x 8 or 6 + 2 pin power connectors.

Here's a link, you can see where the connectors plugs go in one of the pics in the photo gallery.

Awesome card!!!

Should have done your research before buying that card. You would have found most of them overheat.

No warranty? two years should still be covered I would think. But this is the main reason I use a custom fan profile. I never let them get over mid 70's on the temps and that's when they're pegged at 99%.
Hope you enjoy the new ones
