Hmmm. I have a seasonic and run the one power cord that branches into two, 6+2 ends and just dont use the extra two ends. your not putting it into the periphera slots? If i remember correct, flip that PSU upside down and use the top slots for GPU

The modular cables, plug the solid 8 pin block into the PSU in the PCI-E section and run the 6PIN up to the card. The GTX 680 requires two 6 PIN I believe so make sure you connect both.

interesting. Well, I belive psu will only give power as required so you dont have to worry about to much current being pushed to your card *I think*
Can you post up a pic of how you have it wired?

Yeah without looking at the instructions for the power supply (I know right!?) I would say what you are doing is safe. If you want to post the make and model of the PSU I'll research it further in the morning, I'm going to hit the sack now smile.gif
