Sad HX1000i 6pin 12v ATX Cable

Hello all,

This is my first post, so please bear with me. I purchased the following components for a new build:

Motherboard: ASUS WS X299 Sage
CPU: Intel Core i9-7900x
RAM: 32gb (4x8gb) Corsair Vengance
PSU: Corsair HX1000i
1 - 512gb 970PRO M.2
2 - 2x400gb Corsair nx500 Neutron
Cooling: Noctua NH-D15s
Grease: Thermal Grizzley Kryonaut
Video: Low-end PCIe vid card

My question:

The ASUS WS X299 Sage has the following power connectors on the mother board:
a - 24pin ATX Power
b - 2x8pin ATX 12v power
c - 1x6pin ATX 12v power

Any idea where I would find a 6pin ATX 12v connector?? I am fairly certain that these are different from the PCIe 6 (or 6x2pin) connectors. I have scoured the internet, but to no avail. Also, it looks like the pinout of the 6 pin ATX is similar to the 8pin ATX connector. Therefore, I would assume that I could use an 8pin connector on the 6 pin connector (I am assuming here).

Anyways, does anyone have any idea where I could find an adapter that I could purchase that would allow me to plug into the 6pin ATX 12v plug on the mobo?

The Corsair HX1000i only comes with two 8pin ATX 12v plugs, so those will already be used.

Never have had such an issue finding a cable for a motherboard/PSU before.

Thank you in advance for all assistance!

Hi a1000cars, you can connect a 6-pin PCI-e cable here, it's to provide more power videos cards.
