Serious question needing serious confirmed answer!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Alright so here's my problem. I have the CPU cord from my PSU which isn't long enough to go around and I don't like looking at it. So my question is can I connect the cord that has 2 molex adapters to a molex supply then plug it in to the CPU instead?

Look at pictures below. Thanks in advanced!

Look at the last 5 or so pictures. I'm well aware my wires at ugly, have no money so I'm not worried right now.

Any input is appreciated. Just wondering if I can use that molex adapter instead of the CPU one.

No. Those molex adapters are for PCI-E. Just get an EPS 8-pin extender, they are only $3 or so. You only technically need to plug in a 4-pin like the blue one but I would not try for significant overclocks that way.

Alright, thanks guys. Just bought a Kingwin 12v one. Will be here in 2 days thanks for free 2 day shipping! Yea, for some reason the one on the PSU didn't fit with all 8, pretty sure the kingwin one will. Will give +rep to both when it gets here. Thanks again!!
