6+2 = 8, so it'll work.

 

Please do not double post! Your other thread has been removed.

 

All that I have asked is if you will supply an 8 not a 6+2(with a wider retainer clip) which will not fit the GPU socket.

I have posted the question in the relevant forums as I need a speedy response so I can decide if I buy or not the PSU. Clearly I cannot get a response! Sorry to trouble you, I will look somewhere else now!

Please read the commnent in this review (botton of the page):http://www.hexus.net/content/item.php?item=12842&page=2

 

The clip on 6+2 is too wide and as far as I know will only fit if removed. Can be done but seems daft when spending £195 on a PSU to do this. If I buy this PSU I would like to have an 8 pin connector option without having to modify a 6+2!

 

The other thing is, am I a valuable customer or not?, please make up your mind as I have received this email from you on my post which was removed from the customer service!:

Never heard of any connector issues w/ that video card, but I never owned that line either. The 1000W works fine w/ my GTX 280s is all I can say.

 

Corsair's Customer Service doesn't have any logins to the forum. That sounds like a response to an email.

What others here don't seem to realize is that your thinking there is space between the 6 pins and the 2 pin.

 

A 6+2 connector is just like a 20+4 connector. A 20+4 can be used like a 20-pin connector OR a 24-pin connector. It's the same with the 6+2, it can be used as a 6-Pin PCI-E connector OR a 8-Pin connector.
