VGA (db15) female to 12-pin female cable

I have the 9500 GT PCI Express card and I am putting it in a low profile case. Everything works fine BUT the cable that connects the card to the VGA (DB15) connector is too short. I need to get one that is longer (one did come with a converter kit but the end that connects to the card has 15pins instead of just 12). I have no idea what the name of this cable is (I have done all kinds of searches to no avail).

To clarify, there are 12 pins on the actual board of the graphics card, a ribbon cable is connected to it, and the other end is the female DB15 (VGA) connector.

Can someone advise the name of this cable and also where I can find a longer one - or if nVidia sells extension cables that have this 12-pin board connector?

Thank you for any help on this.

  1. Ok I found the cable on the internet but both sites are in Australia. I cannot locate a USA based site with this cable...and not sure if it has a specific name. Here are two links so you have a picture of what I am needing. Thanks again for any help.

  2. Can you replace the ribbon cable part of the adapter with a longer 12 conductor ribbon cable?

    I don't have the knowledge on how to do that but it would work. I am not sure of the crimping methods and tools needed for both ends of the cable - especially the db15 end.

  6. Any luck on this? I have the same issue....
  7. And btw... that cable you found is made by XFX and it has a 15pin board connector - so it will probably not work.
