Never mind, I see you're meaning the extension cable to PCIe cable connection.
That's ok Gary, trust me, I have my moments too

Anyway now you see where I'm coming from, and it really is hard to find a true 8-pin to 6+2 pin PCIE cable. I actually ordered two ATX 12V CPU cables but found out quickly those don't fit. Besides returning them, I looked like a fool

I actually found what I want here: Akasa FLEXA V8 8-Pin PCI-E Single Braid Extension Cable

but they're out of stock, return yet to be determined...
I just looked at the link and they are showing 19 in stock. Jump on it!

Noc's don't.

I can't fathom fan vibration causing paint to flake. Really?
The 6 Noctua fans I have do vibrate, not much but it's there.

(Sorry Drew for the intrusion)

Well I got these in and they work beautifully for GPU's requiring 8-pin connections while also utilizing the full 6+2 pins from the power supply....

Got them from Frozen CPU - Akasa FLEXA V8 8-Pin PCI-E Single Braid Extension Cable . They're kind of long though 40cm (16 inches).

It's similar to the ATX PSU cable that goes to the MOBO; most are eight pin that can be split to two four pin connectors to accommodate MOBOS that have only a four pin socket for the CPU power.

Thanks. And that end (split end) goes to the GPU. Remember the GPU can have either 6 or 8 pin connections, so if your GPU just requires a 6-pin, you can just split the pins into a 6+2 and just use the 6 pin part. The extra two pins will just be un-used.

FrozenCPU are very good for stuff, obviously I live in the UK, but I ordered my 780 backplate from them and it was delivered to my door in the UK within 8 Days! I was very impressed to say the least, especially seeing shipping was only $8!

Glad you got what you needed Drew.

<W.C. Fields impression> Ahh yess.
Now I recall it was where you connected the cables from the SPU to the other extension that had only a 6-pin connector, I think. Is that right?

To be honest I would have loved to get black cables from EVGA instead of having to resort to extension cables. But I knew what I was getting when I purchased the PS. Just wished they offered black cables as well instead of those exclusive bright red ones.

Love the power supply though
