    For those cards that have dual 6-PIN connectors, you will need this additional power connector:

    Hi all,
     
    I am eligible for the offer (I have 2 GTX 1080 Founder Edition)
     
    I made the payment of the shipping costs via Paypal November 13th.
    The shipping must take between 1 to 3 working days, it has been more than a week and I still have not received mail of notice of dispatch ...
    Shipping to France
     
    Is this normal?
     
    Thank you 
     
    Sorry for my poor English

    Clean up my rig nicely.  Dropped temps on the GPUs too without those extensions in the way.  Do not that each powerlink only comes with one 6-pin connector, and my 980s take two.  I had to order two more 6-pins.

    Looks sweet.  Would really like a couple but I'm not sure if they will work with Titan X (Pascals)  Anybody know?

    Thanks!  I would bet yes based on pictures.  The Powerlink is pretty universal.  
     
    The review at babeltech has good closeups

    I thought so as well but just wanted to see if anyone knows for sure.
     
    Thanks though.

    I believe that these are compatible with the Titan X, not just the Nvidia Titan X, but also the GTX Titan X. I do not expect that they would list the current Titan X on the list of compatible GPUs since they do not sell them but seeing as though it is compatible with the Founders cards, including the GTX 1060 6GB which is also not sold (Founder Edition) by EVGA. Also, the video Jayztwocents made shows him installing them in skunkworks which runs 2 Titan X's in SLI with no issues.

    After running a few benchmarks I noticed one of the EVGA powerlinks seems to be ticking. 
     
    I removed it from my system and the ticking has stopped.  Kinda scary, especially when they are hooked up to my new Titans.  I think I may send them back.

    Any chance there will ever be a version compatible with the gtx 970? Preferably the SSC edition? Kinda stupid that the 970 is left out when 950, 960, 980 and 980ti are all compatible, especially seeing how popular the 970 is/was.

    Re: EVGA PowerLink Compatibility 2016/12/30 12:56:09 (permalink)
    I agree with Heavytech...I have 6 GTX970's and with EVGA's sleeved wiring kits, I am still not able to get the look I had hoped for on my rigs. They are not inexpensive cards and while I was happy to find out that they worked on my GTX 980ti's, it actually added to my frustration with the inability to use them on my GTX 970's because they now look less pleasing than before knowing how they "could" appear.
     
    Incidentally, the  PowerLink really will not work on either the GTX 950 or 960. The only cards they work on are the short one fan cards, but it will not fit any of the full size cards such as the 970 GTX's which, I understand a short, single fan version was not produced. I think it is safe to say that unless you have a full size GPU that is a 980 or newer, the PowerLink will not work. I doubt that anyone who purchased a single fan card will want to spend the money for a PowerLink; assuming that they would also be picky about the looks of their rig and have used a windowed case. Never mind that the short GPU's don't support Sli. But that's just my opinion.
     
    I think EVGA would sell a lot of PowerLinks if they provided one for the GTX 970's as not everyone upgrades their GPU the second a new version comes out and I bet there a ton of great builds where people would want to upgrade with a PowerLink and not a GPU. The same applies to earlier GPU's as I am fairly certain that with two variations of the PowerLink, they would be able to fit so many more GPU's than they can with the present one. And I doubt that someone would buy a 1000 series GPU (or two) just so they can also use a PowerLink.
     
    But again, that's just me. I love EVGA and have for a long time. I doubt I would buy anything else irrespective of whether one of their accessories will fit or not. I do wonder however at how they introduce new accessories or products and their rationale behind them. This is not the first time that I have experienced similar frustrations. A perfect example is the new motherboard that I just purchased, and it has the pinouts for an accessory they haven't sold in years and have no plans of bringing back. Yet the manual makes it a point to make sure you take advantage of that feature. 
     
    Whatever...

    Hi,

    Where there be a problem if I reverse PCIE Connector of the EVGA Power Link and connect it to my Asus GTX 980 Poseidon which its PCIE connector is in different orientation?
    Will it still work? I would like to know before I try it?

    I have the same problem. EVGA did not explain this anywhere on the product page on Amazon....so I bought 2 of them for my MSI 1080's which have the same inverted PCI-e power connectors. Now I have 2 things I cannot use...
     
    Is there a way to flip the power connectors to use the PowerLink with these power connectors?

    Wow, now I am happy I looked here before I pulled the trigger on 2 of these for my poseidons.
    Would also like to know if there is a way to make them compatible with inverted power connectors.

    There are 2 conductive rails in the product, one transmitting the 12v feed, and the other acting as the ground, so no, you cannot flip the connector.

    Nothing a mod cannot fix, I would loved to see polarity change switch in-built but meh, you can mod it to change the polarity. I did it for other user but I think I could have added there a switch to change the polarity.

    Not a fan honestly. I thought the powerlink was a nifty little item and with some modifications I would be able to eliminate the logo as it's an eyesore. Another item to toss in my garbage bin.

    It's not listed, but anyone know for sure if this won't fit a Titan X SC?  I only ask because I saw an Ebay auction where a guy was selling it with a Titan X, and as someone mentioned above, it's looks to be pretty universal.

    yes it will work, it as the 8pin/8pin configuration setup so all you have to do is remove one of the 8 pin plugs and install the included 6 pin plug, adjust it as per instructions. if the video card came with  2 6 pin connections then you would need to order/buy the 2nd 6 pin seperate for the power link.
     if you check out my mod rigs link you will see that it keeps it nice and tidy, dont forget to +1 my rig
    thank you

    This kinda sux as I received my PowerLink today and was excited to hook it up only to find the connectors locking clips on my card (Zotac GTX1070 AMP! Extreme) are on the top as the Asus.
     
    Bummed out after shelling out to buy this thing. 




    Why didn't you go with an Evga card?     :/

    I agree with Heavytech...I have 6 GTX970's and with EVGA's sleeved wiring kits, I am still not able to get the look I had hoped for on my rigs. They are not inexpensive cards and while I was happy to find out that they worked on my GTX 980ti's, it actually added to my frustration with the inability to use them on my GTX 970's because they now look less pleasing than before knowing how they "could" appear.
     
    Incidentally, the  PowerLink really will not work on either the GTX 950 or 960. The only cards they work on are the short one fan cards, but it will not fit any of the full size cards such as the 970 GTX's which, I understand a short, single fan version was not produced. I think it is safe to say that unless you have a full size GPU that is a 980 or newer, the PowerLink will not work. I doubt that anyone who purchased a single fan card will want to spend the money for a PowerLink; assuming that they would also be picky about the looks of their rig and have used a windowed case. Never mind that the short GPU's don't support Sli. But that's just my opinion.
     
    I think EVGA would sell a lot of PowerLinks if they provided one for the GTX 970's as not everyone upgrades their GPU the second a new version comes out and I bet there a ton of great builds where people would want to upgrade with a PowerLink and not a GPU. The same applies to earlier GPU's as I am fairly certain that with two variations of the PowerLink, they would be able to fit so many more GPU's than they can with the present one. And I doubt that someone would buy a 1000 series GPU (or two) just so they can also use a PowerLink.
     
    But again, that's just me. I love EVGA and have for a long time. I doubt I would buy anything else irrespective of whether one of their accessories will fit or not. I do wonder however at how they introduce new accessories or products and their rationale behind them. This is not the first time that I have experienced similar frustrations. A perfect example is the new motherboard that I just purchased, and it has the pinouts for an accessory they haven't sold in years and have no plans of bringing back. Yet the manual makes it a point to make sure you take advantage of that feature. 
     
    Whatever...
     
     




    I'm with ya, instead of upgrading my EVGA GTX 970 to a newer card I ended up getting a second one for SLI.  Would be awesome if they made PowerLink for this series card, as I plan to keep my cards for the foreseeable future..  Finally upgraded my rig from mid-tower to full-tower and cable management is now a hobby in itself.
