I_R0M_IThanks for the links. Was un aware Corsair sold them separately.My only worry, is they don't actually list any for my psu. I'm assuming mine will come under 'original hx' as its really quite old. So it's in stock in the UK, but worried it won't work, or will damage something. I'm assuming if it did fit, they would list it.
I_R0M_IHi,I, like many, am awaiting my ftw Ultra.Currently running a 1080ti ftw, with 2 8 pin pcie cables direct from the psu. Trying to figure the best option to get a 3rd for the 3080.I have an old Corsair Hx1000, the only spare cables I can find are 2 6 pin pcie cables, and a sata.I'm thinking either a 6 to 8 pin adapter, this way it has 3 separate cables from psu.Or an 8 pin splitter, but this way it has only 2 dedicwcabkes from psu.I don't think there is anyway to link 2 6 pin supplies into an 8 pin? As this would in theory provide the 150w (75 x 2) of a normal 8 pin. I'm open to any other suggestions (other than buying a new psu). I've looked for a modular cable to fit, but seems a bit of a minefield that it will be pinned the same as my psu. Even on corsair list multiple types, and my psu is old! But it's never slipped a beat, so not looking to replace it.I'm probably getting too caught up in it. My understanding is the pcie can provide 75watts, each 8 pin can provide 150watts, and a 6 pin is another 75watts.Thanks
HeavyHemiConsidering the age of the PSU and the fact that the PSU is internally two separate 500 watt power supplies, one for each rail...I'd buy a new one. (despite what you said) They never skip a beat, until they do. I do not know why, if you're spending that much on a GPU, you would use a substandard PSU. (it is nothing personal, I have a HX1000, probably still works fine. However, the dual 500 watt construction, was causing issues with balancing the load with SLI).
Jonci025The compatability chart has"The only difference between Type 3 and Type 4 cables is the pinout of the 24-pin ATX cable; all other cables (SATA, PCIe, etc) are the same. The hx series takes either the type 3 or type 4 PCIE cables you can get a pack of 2 from SCAN for just under £19.99+p&p, choose a colour. scan.co.uk/search?q=corsair+type+4
