Lost Modular PCI-E 6 to 6, Antec no longer sells replacement, a few questions

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So my buddy was using some parts from his old PC and upgraded a few things using his old PSU.

Its an antec 550w and the modular outputs on the PSU are 6-pin

We do have a double sided male 6-pin cable that is not the one that came with the PSU but the computer will not boot when using it for the GPU if I remember correctly there is only 4 cables that come out at the power supply end? this has a cable going to pin, could I possibly just clip some of the wires?

Here is a small album of pictures

You can see there is a wire going to each pin.

Thanks!

if you can find out the power supply model im sure you can contact Antec and ask for another one. i doubt it would be expensive, probably under $10

I contacted support and they simply replied "That power supply is discontinued we can no longer offer support for it" I sent a reply saying Its the same cable you use on your current offerings and they never replied back.

the store shows Out of stock but it has been that way for atleast a year (People say they stopped offering them)

When I called antec they directed me to http://www.moddiy.com/

the cable is like 8-10 bucks with 8-10 dollar shipping... that's nuts I could buy a new CX430 from corsair after rebate for that price.

So I have checked out different options and tried my luck with google a bit but no good solutions have come to light.
