Need 6-pin to 8-pin cables now.


Recommended Posts

I am in Sydney, Australia.


I bought a Corsair HX-620 power supply a few years ago.


It is a modular PSU and it came with 2 x 6pin PCI-e GPU power cables which have all worked perfectly.


However, now that it is time for a graphics upgrade, I have a problem.


New GPU's want 2 8-pin power cables.


Where can I get the 6-pin to 6+2 pin power leads.


Any advice would be appreciated.

hi, i have a 780ti SC and it came with 2 extra cables. Each have 2 6pin connectors on one end and on other is a 8pin.


So im guessing your gfx package would also have this.


correct me if im wrong but

6 pin = 75

8 pin = 150


so u need 2 6pins to convert to one 8pin, so basically u need 4 6pin's for 2 8pins.


correct me if im wrong again but i have heard that many power supplies will deliver 150 on the single 6 pin, you may just be asking for trouble(the 8 pin cable actually gives 2 extra ground wires as I see it.).


cheers m8...hope it helps

The point is, if I can get 2 cables 6-pin to 6+2 pin cables, then I will not need to buy another PSU and dump a perfectly good one.


well u need to check how much power is coming out of ur 6 pins , if its 150 then u can get 6 to 8 pin adapters, else if they are 75 and u use adapters, then u are in for trouble with running the card mate..
