Nereus Posted this in wrong thread, delete pls. ..WAIT! ..why waste a perfectly good post. Here: Although I agree, $40 is pretty steep for what it is, but some of the reactions are way over the top.
Glnk.Whatever, call it entitlement but this will give EVGA bad rep if others are offering this cable free of charge. That is called service, and we pay for that when we choose premium products over others. Guess this puts EVGA in the bin it belongs.
Zeddivileya considering you can by an entire cable extension kit for 40$. and Cablemods pro series COMPLETE KIT for EVGA for 90$.. and EVGA's own cable mod kits for ... OMG EVGA changed the store listings for basically all psu cables. Now every individual cable is 40$ROFL. Nice move EVGA....
ZeddivileIt makes no sense that the 24 conductor and a 6 / 8 conductor are the same 40$ price.... This demonstrates that EVGA just chose a flat price and applied to all the cables on the store to normalize pricing between the new 12pin and the legacy cables...
OmoebaAFAIK they didn't raise the price on the other cables; here's the cached page from June https://web.archive.org/w...Individually+Sleeved)https://www.evga.com/prod...Individually+Sleeved).].[/link] EDIT: The link doesn't work so look up https://www.evga.com/products/productlist.aspx?type=10&family=Power+Supplies&chipset=Power+Supply+Cable+Set+(Individually+Sleeved) on the wayback machine
Nereus The 12-pin adaptors are available right now btw [link]... $50 for me once NY sales tax & shipping was added.. ouch. ..I may have just wasted $50 if these cards are going to be permanently out of stock. No worries, I can sell it on EBay for $1,000 lol..
AquatorchSomething that doesn't make sense to me is that the 12-pin cable will require using two VGA slots on a PSU. This appears to be extremely bad for every mining setup out there and here's why: GeForce RTX 3070 max power draw: 220 Watts.Simple mining rig max power draw: 150 Watts Powering a simple mining rig (approximately 150 maximum Watts) along with RTX 3070 GPUs:- EVGA SuperNova 1600 (any type) should be able to handle six cards pretty easily. However, the PSU itself only has nine VGA slots, so the maximum it can hold is four GPUs instead of six.- EVGA SuperNova 1300 Gold should be able to handle four cards pretty easily. However, the PSU itself only has six VGA slots, so the max it can hold is three GPUs instead of four. It looks like every PSU will be impacted by this as well...
EVGATech_LeeM Perhaps it would make more sense if you consider that NVIDIA recommends two separate connectors from the power supply when powering the 3080:
AquatorchEVGATech_LeeM Perhaps it would make more sense if you consider that NVIDIA recommends two separate connectors from the power supply when powering the 3080: That in itself is also a flaw for future mining then.
mchang1984Reading all of the comments here, if you make a white cable, I will buy one.
