PCI-E 6pin power Bodge

Okay so my new GPU needed the 6 pin , i forgot where i put the adapter ! it was late ! i had 5 strongbows ! i was crazy !

I cut the 4 pin atx power of and cut another of two broke psu's

Cut one in half

and put them in the 6 pin power slot on the card

3 tops where ground
3 bottoms where 12v used A MOLEX connecter and wired it up

it works ! brilliant and i soldered and heat shrink wrapped it then taped around it to make it even more secure !
