Whats the name of this cable?

Hi I just added a second 660 ti to my rig and I didn't have another of the cable that I used to plug in my first 660, so I had to use the molex adapters, I know its a pcie cable but I the only ones i can find only have 1 6 pin instead of 2. http://puu.sh/22EpJ hopefully that picture explains. I just want to buy another to reduce all the cables the molex caused

  1. It's a current vs cable thing. Every adapter I have seen uses two.

    Maybe one with black connectors would help the aesthetics?

    Also, I recommend turning your PSU over if your case has an intake on the bottom.

    Cooler air for the PSU, and it's not "fighting" the bottom graphics card for air.
  2. What's your power supply model? The cable the goes to the Graphics Card called PCIE 6 PIN, seems your PSU has only 2 x PCIE 6 PIN cables so you'll have to convert from molex anyway. The cables already came with your card.

    Again not very smart with all the cable stuff so here's my psu http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817152043 if that is the case than I'll just use the above advice and get some of those black adapters.

    Yea those would be 10 times better than what I have now thanks! And as for the psu, I never even thought of that, I have a cm haf x so will have to check but almost positive it does so I'll take you're advice!
  5. Your PSU already have 4 x PCIE 6+2 Pin, you don't have to use molex at all!!!!!!

    And what makes you assume he hasn't the cable?
