Molex split to 6 pin adapter

Hey forum!

I got a question for you.
I only have 1 molex cable and want to go to a 6 pin adapter.
I had the idea of first spliting the cable with a molex cable split and the going to a 6 pin adapter.
my question is will this work? and will i lose any power?

i want to do this to power my 9600 gt...

  1. You can do this with an adapter, but during gpu load it can really pull hard on the psu's 12v rail, and sometimes causes system instability, its best to get a psu with the right connector as they come with individual 12v rails on the graphics/cpu/molex/ motherboard connectors which doesn't affect or interfere with the other 12v outputs.
  2. You list your configuration as including a Corsair 750W psu.Since that psu has 4x6+2-pin connectors, you must be talking about a different system.

    Please provide the specs for the PC you are asking about, including make/model of the psu.
