Because it doesn't change electrical power delivery -
Those extra two pins are sense pins (given that the existing 6 pins are all 3x3, lacking lacking the wire they don't need). You'd get the same benefit (assuming the card is set up to see the grounds) by adding a jumper from those two pins to ground, as they all end up common in the PSU anyways. It could be cleaner that way.
The card already has 150W*2 and 75W*2 for a total of 450W available. How close are you to 450W draw?Edited by u3b3rg33k - 10/14/12 at 12:06pm
