No more cables to connect to the PSU, what are the options? - Page 2

Yeah, they dont wanna switch over another PSU because they'll be multi rail, and i duno about in your country but in France the package of the titan says you need "at least a 600w PSU with over 42A on the +12v rail", and well other PSU's in France have like 30a maximum on the rails. Kinda confusing as i read everywhere single rail vs multi rail makes no difference. So i guess i'll just have to stick with what they're offering : P

He has the Cooler Master Silent Pro 1300 in his build. It is already fully modular. Its cable selection seems lacking though with only a single 5 spot molex cable. It does appear to have 2-3 multi-sata power cables though.

quakeas - as I mentioned before, you can use splitters on those Molex connectors as you will likely only be using them for fans anyway. There are also SATA to Molex power adapters as well that can be used.

That card actually has a 6-pin power connector on it, similar to what video cards have. I wonder if the pinout is the same? If so, they can use one of your existing 8 PCIE connectors. That's where the documentation gets weird though. Both Newegg and CoolerMaster list the PSU coming with 6 PCIE connectors in a picture and 8 in the text. If it really comes with 6 (3 split cables), then your builder is correct that there are no more ports available, but could still use ad adapter. It appears that the PSU does support 8 PCIE connectors (4 split cables) however. You may be able to purchase one direct from Cooler Master.

Here are a couple of the adapters

Sata to PCIE
Molex to PCIE
