rhsouWhen building my mining rigs I went with all EVGA PSUs for compatibility only to then find out that not all of the cables are the same. I'm looking at PCIe cables and see that I have 2 different styles. This may have ruined the entire point of sticking with EVGA. Some have 2 of the pins connected but appear to be the same otherwise. Is it safe to mix them by using non-connected cables in PSUs that have the connected pins? Also, It seems that the CPU ports are the same as the PCIe ports. If only the other end of the cables are different is is safe to plug PCIe cables into CPU ports on the PSU so that I can power more GPUs?Are there other cable compatibility issues I should be aware of? Before realizing that they weren't all the same I put them all together and now have no idea which cables came with which PSUs. Is this a problem for me now?I have 220-GA-0850-RX, 120-GP-1000-RX, 220-GA-0850-X1, and 210-GQ-1000-V1.Final question... How close to maximum wattage is it safe to run these at long term? I'm trying to stay at least about 15-20% below maximum. Is that reasonable for long term constant draw?
rhsouIs there a way that I can positively identify which cables went with which PSUs so I can safely separate them. Are the ports themselves compatible on any given CPU so that I could plug PCIe/VGA cables into the CPU ports to power GPUs or risers?
rhsouI do have a couple more PSUs currently being shipped to me. I'll see in a few days if I can ID what I have based on comparing with what is coming. If I still have any questions after that I'll be back.Thanks for the help.
rhsouI tried sharing a link to their b stock page but it didn't show up. Apparently they don't allow links even if they lead to their own page.

I hope you get you cables sorted. @CLL1990: If you go to the product page of the PSU you want, you can do the auto-notify. EVGA will send an e-mail when it is available. I have just done this on the 1000 G3 PSU. It only took a few days for it to come in stock, and notify. I hope you guys are taking advantage of members associate codes to save a few bucks on your purchase. You can find them in peoples sigs. I think it is a 10% discount.
