Yeah, but most power supplies that only have one or two 6-pins and no 8-pin should probably not be running a GPU that requires an 8-pin... Especially not off the molex leads...

the evga supernova has a better configuration for this, 6 for vga and 2 for cpu

Almost no video cards use 2x 8 pins so thats why you dont see that many PSU´s with 2x of those

how so?

280x, 7950 and 7970 all use 2 x 8 pin

in the end are those molex safe with a psu like the evga supernova 1300w?

The only reference cards that I can think of that use dual 8 pins are dual GPU cards like the 7990, 690, 295x2, etc. There are a few non-reference cards that use dual 8 pin design like the classified, lightning, and some others, but all reference cards and most other cards use 6 pin and 8 pin.

i didn't know about that as i only buy custom vga, i mean vga with custom cooling, like vapor-x , trix ecc

And not even all of those have 2x 8 pin most common is still 1x 6 and 1x 8 pin

but are you sure that i can connect only one cable 6pin to the two molex? because in this way it is like connecting a 6 pin to a 8 pin

i think two lines are needed

Two molex to one 6 pin and two 6 pin for one 8 pin. That's how it goes, but honestly you shouldn't need to ever do that. You're either going to be pushing that PSU too far, or it's probably too old to be used for that set up you have.

Cable itself does not care you can do it no problem, the molex connector on the other hand might not be able to do it.
I cant say to be honest

I'm assuming a modified Aurum Pro platform with a slight layout change..

If we were to look at the internal through the back grill, it look very similar to it. http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story5&reid=292
When looking at the front of the PSU (opposite of the modular board), the heatsink with the bridge rectifier had switch places with the blue Y-caps. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Now looking through the fan grill of the G1 unit on Newegg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817438019
Zoom in to the bottom-left where you see the dual row of red polymer caps; bottom-right and you will see one of the main transformer.
To free up real estate for the dual row polymers, the daughter board with the DC-DC converter for the minor rails had move towards the back - parallel to the modular board and flipped upside-down.
It may be due to these layout changes that shifted the left primary cap towards the front as shown in the top-right of the image. (opps, realized I didn't included the part with the primary cap...well, you can check it out on Newegg. lol).
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

If it is, hopefully someone will do a review on this unit, as the NEX650G/750G should have been base on that platform.

Edit: How have you been, Shilka?
