Yep, the first 6 pins on an 8 pin are the same as a 6 pin connector.

That PSU has 4 6+2 pin connectors, use these with out the extra 2 pins attached.

I wanted to use a sleeved extension cable for to make my build a little more neat. This 6+2 extension cable should work fine with it, correct? http://www.nzxt.com/product/detail/47-cb-8v-premium-cab...


The cable in the is a 6-pin to 6+2 pin adapter. So you'll need to just plug in the 6-pin part of the 6+2 and will have a 2-pin hanging of the cable and extension.

Okay I understand this. But I want to use a premium cable because this is a higher-end build. So a 6-pin+2 extension cable would work if I connect both the 6-pin+2 cable and 6-pin+2 extension? I don't believe there would be any harm in doing this.
