To avoid such risk, MB has two ways: 1. adding more 4 / 6 / 8 pin connector on MB/VGA cards: this is the common way 2. using one 10 / 12 pin connector: this way is rarely seem, yet save more space who knows in the near future, would the 10 / 12 pin connector on MB / VGA card be more common. Yet we can seem more PSU manufacturers follow ENERMAX way to benefit the space saving advantage. | Report abuse ctbaars August 14, 2012 1:37:53 AM Best answer selected by ctbaars. | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Components> 12P modular design for possible upcoming new CPU and GPU 10P and/or 1> Related ressources: ForumA powerful workstation design looking for a few good man!
