  1. it is a common cable, just make sure you hook it up right depending on your power supply
  2. I need to buy one though, cant find em anywhere, where there is a 8 pin (PSU) to 6+2 (GPU)
  3. check your psu first, if you don't already have it your psu might not handle it
  4. ha dont worry i dont live in korea, U.K for me. PSU is a arctic 850W, the 6+2 it has are possibly not working (well the +2) so i wanted to try another (8to6+2) cable

    so can you tell me then would this cable plug into my 8 pin on the PSU then go straight into the GPU 6+2
  6. Sorry, are you looking for a PCI-E Y-type splitter, or a reverse molex to PCI-E? or something else? The way I read your link is F-F thus basically an extention cable. What are you trying to accomplish?
  7. I need to power my GPU/ My PSU has two 8 pin connections and the GPU requires two 8 pin how could i power it?
  8. Sooooo what's the problem? You have two 8 pin connects and GPU need two 8 pins connections.

    Edit: just don't mess up the motherboard power connectors
  9. Yes that is my problem, what cable does that job then? PSU connections do say PCI-E beneath them.
  10. Ok, what do you mean when you say they don't work. Do they not fit? Not power on? etc.

    Also I don't think they make native 8 pin connectors for GPUs, well they might but it would be a really dumb thing to do seeing as how 6+2 would be more universal.

    As long as your not mixing up a 6+2 connector with something like a native 8pin cpu connector or a 4+4 pin cpu connector it should work just fine as it is.
  11. Arrrrggg....I hate these middle of the night posts. Try it and see if it works! If it says PCI-E then use it for the PCI-E!

    i believe there is not enough power, 6 pin part work fine but when ever the 7970 is plugged in using the extra 2 pin part the MOB beeps 1 long 3 short and VGA LED stays on i wanted to try a complete new cable to the GPU
  13. am i looking for a male (PSU)to female(GPU) cable
  14. Depending on what 7970 you have it might require 2x 6+2 pin or 1 6 pin and 1 6+2, regardless make sure that you have power connectors in both slots on the GPU.

    if you absolutely know its not a problem with the PSU and your cables are absolutely correct. this "MIGHT" be what your looking for. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812198018

    Though an 8pin to 2x6+2 pin is rather awkward, a 6+2 pin is an 8pin connector so going from 1 8pin to 2 8pin just doesn't seem like it would work, power wise.
  15. It needs 2x8, I've tried all combinations and still get the same response from MOB, so with a new cable am i looking for a male (PSU) 8 pin to female(GPU) 6+2 cable or something different.
  16. But a 6+2 is an 8pin and if the 8pin doesn't work in the first place why would and extension like device change that? Assuming that its just a dead cable for some reason a molex to 6+2 would work fine. Assuming you can find one.

    Here is an 8pin EPS (THIS IS FOR A CPU SOCKET CABLE NOT A GPU 8/6+2pin)

    Don't think thats what you wanted. still looking. I'm not even sure if they make them.
  17. when you said about this on http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6812198018
    it would of be perfect if not for the 6 pin (PSU end)
