Ah, I see then. It makes sense now that I think about it, considering most high-end PSUs would have multiple PCI-E connectors for SLI/CF anyway.

Also, I've just undervolted my 470 to 925mV (from 1012mV stock). Do you have any idea how much less power it will now consume?

It's just that good power supplies are less likely to have problems when using the molex to PCI-E adapters than lower quality units. At least, that's my current understanding.

Unfortunately I don't, but I bet that it's practically nothing. I mean damn, that's less than 1.00V.

I see your point, but my temps have gone down by a good 12C at full load (furmark). Seems like it should make some kind of a difference. It's like a 9% decrease.
