it is a common cable, just make sure you hook it up right depending on your power supply

I need to buy one though, cant find em anywhere, where there is a 8 pin (PSU) to 6+2 (GPU)

check your psu first, if you don't already have it your psu might not handle it

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

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?

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?

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

Yes that is my problem, what cable does that job then? PSU connections do say PCI-E beneath them.

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.

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

am i looking for a male (PSU)to female(GPU) cable

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=N82E168...

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.

November 14, 2012 8:30:23 AM

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.

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.
