Was wondering how to distinguish between an 8 pin ATX 12 v power connector and an 8 pin PCIE connector?

    On EVGA PSU write on connectors but 8pin ATX is usually from one cable or 4+4pin, 
    PCI-E power cable are 6+2pin with all modern PSU you can't wrong,
    I'm not sure but maybe and connectors type are difference no matter on number of pins.
    But difference you can see and on this pictures...
     

    PCI-E cable usually have and 2x 8pin(6+2) for all new graphic cards. 
    This is picture of cables from NEX1500 where people clearly can read CPU1-CPU2, VGA, MB...from other side of connectors and no mistakes.

    Wanted to build my system EVGA from the ground up.  Unfortunately the Nex1500 has been discontinued and out of stock.  Wanted to wait and see what they replace it with in 2014.  In the meantime I have to recycle a Silverstone SST-ST1200 from 2009.  Would like to order the NEX Power Supply Cable Set (Individually Sleeved) to tied me over.  Will the NEX kit work with my Sliverstone?

    Silverstone:
    1 x 24-Pin motherboard connector.(550mm)
    1 x 8-Pin EPS12V connector.(750mm)
    1 x 8/4-Pin EPS/ATX 12V.(750mm)
    4x 6-Pin-PCIE.(550mm / 150mm)
    2x 8/6-Pin-PCIE.(550mm)
    6x SATA.(500mm / 250mm / 250mm)
    6x 4-Pin Peripheral.(500mm / 250mm / 250mm)
    2x 4-Pin Floppy.(500mm / 250mm / 250mm / 150mm)
     
    EVGA NEX kit:
    High quality with no visible heat shrink. Includes: 1x24 Pin, 2x 8 Pin CPU + PCIe 6 pin, 8x 6+2 pin PCIe, 4x SATA, 2x Molex, 1x Floppy adapter, 1 USB adapter.
     
    Thanks for the posting.

    No, they will not fit. All manufacturer have different cables or connectors shape.
    Silverston have sleeved extension and cables for own power supplies but they are not so good as on NEX1500.
    Actually you will not find such cables on any power supplies on the world.
     
    For Silverstone PSU you can look here, I think cables are compatible with all their power supplies after 2008 but you need to check that.

    If you have money and like sleeve on this site you can probably order cables for SuperNOVA 1000G2/1300G2 and 1000P2.
    You can ask them and they will make in color you want and exactly what cables you need but I think soon they will offer and for EVGA PSU kit...

    Cables are closest to MDPC-X, without srink and they even make exactly color combination.

    The plugs are molded differently....one has a round pin socket and the other would have a square pin socket in the same place....every one should be different like that so you cant put them in the wrong connections, although a few people have come on here and after forcing them with a lot of push were able to somehow do it. They probably stretched the plastic just enough after repeated attempts and finally got them in.

    Thanks for all your advice.  My Silverstone has a rad right in front of the connectors and that is why I couldn't see the pin shapes.  When I looked at photographs online the PSU side connectors look identical to NEX.  I started ordering custom cables yesterday but ran into trouble because the vender didn't have red in the length I needed.  The other issue is that I liked the way the NEX are printed on the cable connector.  Ordering NEX cables from EVGA was so much simpler and will give me more flexibility with their generous offerings.  I have learned the hard way that quality EVGA products sell out quickly and if you think twice things are out of stock.  Have to give EVGA total kudos for the NEX1500 as it was a bargain at any price.  Once I started looking at mod cases I was not happy with 99% of the PSU on the market.  The individual sleeved cables clean the look up so much better.  Here are some beautiful examples of individually sleeved PSU cables.

    One VERY important difference that should be noted between the 2.
    For an EPS 8 pin or 4+4  versus a PCIE 8pin or 6+2, the pinouts are different, however, as I have seen this done, you can plug them into each other withOUT forcing it.  However to do this you must plug it in backwards.  This will be obvious by the tab on the motherboard/video card will be on the opposite side of the release clip.  This can cause damage to components if you try to power it on. 
    I just let you know for cautions sake, as I have seen it done before, and it can cause damage to components.  They are not interchangeable connectors.

    no problem  :)  Seen enough things hosed from that goof up before, just wanted to make sure all here were aware.

    I'm not sure what is with CORSAIR, Enermax, SF power supplies, on EVGA and Seasonic cables write on connectors.
    No mistakes. That's best for avoiding confusion. On EVGA VGA/CPU1/ on Seasonic PCI-E/CPU,
