it could be...I can't find the full specs (# and wattage per rail,) but I would certainly look at that adapter first...if the wires aren't rated for it, they will melt.

Not at all. Some video cards come with the connectors for the PCIE that goes to molex. I would consider the PSU faulty if it does it then. It should not be doing that when drawing power on high demand games

My 6970s average 157w and max at 287w for comparison...
Thank you and rep given, always helping me and giving top advice!

the gpu is connected to the normal pci express slot and is then powered by 2 6 pin adapters

I had a simular burned smell aswell when i ran High graphic games in the start and i solved mine by removing the sidepanel my gainward 680, rached critical temps, Because in the back of the reference Cooper shroud has alittle Open gab where hot air escapes through and into you case, But Because of the plate that is looking the GPU in the back that air cant escape and Then my card started to smell Then 5-10 min after it chrashed do to Overheat, try removing that plate like i did.

Yeah, the older Fractal PSUs weren't exactly quality...What are you running that you need a 750w PSU?

Unless sleeving, then you definitely want to stay away with all their double wires...Silverstone is great too..1 to 1 pin out...

the 750w is more down to me trying to get something that will be a bit future proof and provide me enough power for upgrades down the line
