6 pin pci male to male

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi

I have a coolermaster modular psu unfortunately only 2 x 6 pin pci cables and no 8 pin, I am planning on running two GTX 460's, the 8 pin modular connections are for a male cable so I am thinking I need 2 male to male 6 pin cable but cant find one. Any idea what I can do?

I dont want to use molex/sata

I'm not really sure of what you're asking for when it comes to the "male to male" connection, but I think I can save you time searching for one...

Buy a higher wattage PSU. Or a PSU of similar wattage but with a higher amperage on the 12v rail(s).

Either that or don't plan on using SLI. Long story short; if your PSU has two 6-pins and no 8-pins, it's probably not meant for multiple cards and shouldn't be used with them. At least not the newer cards you want to run.

edit: Im a bit confused on what you need, can you give us your psu model to understand better. btw, the gtx 460s use two 6-pin connectors each.
