Help finding a cable extension please!

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I'm a new computer builder, and I bought a Corsair AX750 PSU to power up my ASUS Rampage III Extreme Black Edition. I have the 24-Pin power cable for the main board and the EPS/ATX12V 4-Pin & 8-Pin compatible hooked up to my board.

My problem is the EPS/ATX12V 4-Pin & 8-Pin isn't long enough to reach the bottom of my Corsair 800D case to the PSU. I can't find this 4/8-Pin power cable extension. Can someone show me a link where I can get one, thank you.

Great extension. I have that NZXT 8 pin and works and looks great.

I just bought that 2 days ago and recieved it. The heads won't hook up to the corsair cable or motherboard cpu power connector. One of those 4 pins will hook up, but the other 4 pins won't fit the second connector on the board

They give you a short extension already if I'm not mistaken, and then you plug that one into the CPU power cable from the PSU itself. My corsair psu came with the 4/8 pin which made it just long enough to reach the psu in the bottom bay. The CPU power cable is fairly long

no, I never got an extension for the EPS/ATX12v cable with my AX750. I got two of these cables, but one has a 12-pin head to connect to the PSU and the other is an 8-pin head to connect with the PSU. on my Rampage III board, the cpu power connect is near the top left corner and when I route the wires into the 800D gromet it doesn't make it through the second gromet below the case.

The listed wires with the AX750 is on this link here: http://forum.corsair.com/forums/showthread.php?t=83210

That doesn't seem like the same thing.

Here's a picture of my ASUS manaul where it circles the power cable

and here's the actual board where those connectors are (you can see half of it has a cover on it, not sure what that's for)
