You get a message when booting about lack of power to the GPU.

Max et al,

I have a Corsair PSU too can’t recall exact model but it’s rated at
750W. It was overkill for the first PC I built with it and the second
and probably the third one too, built last year. My first with a
“good” graphics card. This PSU must be about 9 years old now and the
PC runs 24/7, current uptime about a year except for update reboots. I think I’m getting my money’s worth out of it.

Do some graphics cards have a second power supply connection? I've seen this with satellite TV tuner cards. Just wondering what might happen if the second power lead hadn't been connected....
