Re: TK025 Dual Graphics Riser for T7400 in Dell Precision 690 ?

Hi MSquires,

Maybe this will help you:

You can find exactly the same converter on eBay.

Robinet,

Thanks again for the help, the wiring harness worked like a champ!  Also, after seeing the pics i realized that the T7400 manual actually has pinouts, and they did appear to match for my purposes.  It's worth a look...Thanks again!

Robinet,

Thank you.  Are you recommending that I connect the adapter (photo above from the link you provided) to one of the PSU 6-Pin (P5 or P10) connecters?  Or, is there an 8-pin (P11) to 8-pin PCIe PEG adapter available also?

Thanks,

Hi Mark,

As the P5 and P10 connectors should be universal - to use with ANY PCI-E graphics card - and the cable from the photo is also universal - you should be able to use it as converter from 6pin to 8pin - but I haven't tried it myself so I can't give you any warranty 😞 but I would use it that way 😉

cheers

MSquires,

If your video card is keyed to accept that connector you MAY be okay, but dell's 8 pin plug runs comm, 3.3vdc and 12vdc.  Check the pinout on your card against the t7400's p5 and p19 connectors.  I had to make a custom harness for my setup, but it was because the riser card needed the 3.3vdc connection.  Your card may run a standard configuration just be sure the input from your psu is pushing the correct power to each of your pins.

Kambot ,

But riser requires special connection and special voltages - P5 and P10 are "standard" connectors for PCI-E graphics cards.

P11 connector is dedicated for graphics riser.

Robinet,

Gotcha, and I completely agree.  So long as MSquires is not using the P11, and only the P5 & P10, it *shouldn't* be an issue.  Re-reading his post I realized you guys are smart and are using the 1kw PSU. 

P.S. I followed your advice & picked up a PERC 6/i...only 'thing' is that it came with the 'rest' of the Poweredge 2900iii it was installed in...(got the whole setup for less $ than a pulled PERC 6/i was running online).  So I've been playing around with that for a while now...any recommendations on A. WHS 2011, B. SBS2011 or C. 2008R2?  It's for a home server, but I want secure remote access, a domain controller, DLNA compliance, automated backups, and a few other 'goodies' along the way.  Thanks!

Kambot,

I'm still on Vista and Q6600 but I'm moving to Win7 and 2x e5472, 16x 4GB, 2x 9800GTX+ - on the Precision T7400 - and few SAS drives 😉

So I can't help you with OS 😞

cheers
