Why do you need to test the power output per modular cable?

Each cable is designed to give a specific number of watts, depending also on the rail it's connected to.

What are the oddities?

We need more/specific information to help you. The PSU may not even be the problem.

A
The pci power 6 pins are not making card and boot happy
But
Able to run molex to adapter
I'd like to test components, like the power cables.. Although unlikely to have bad cable. Most likely some combination of small issues...

B
The card on adapter fails on main pci e rail, works on secondary

Go through this checklist:

1. Take your graphics card out. Connect your monitor to the motherboard's graphics port.
2. Make sure the 8 pin CPU power is correctly inserted.
3. Make sure the 24 pin motherboard power cable is also correctly inserted.
4. Make sure the RAM modules are correctly seated. Take them out and put them back in - you should hear a click sound when inserted properly. Also make sure you are using the correct DIMM slots - refer to your MB manual.
5. Use a motherboard speaker if you have one.
6. Make sure the front panel connectors are connected correctly. Again, refer to your motherboard manual.
7. Make sure there are no screws on or underneath the motherboard. Loose screws can short the motherboard.
8. Also make sure the CPU fan is connected and inserted into the correct slot.

Test the system. If it doesn't boot:

1. Take the RAM modules and drives out. Test the system again.
2. Did you hear any beep error codes? If not, it is likely your motherboard is faulty.

Did you use an anti-static mat to build your system. Did you discharge any static before working on the system?

Don't you need two PCIE 6 pin cables to run the card?

yes both cables plugged in and I was getting .. turn off and plug in cables and getting NO errors using molex adapter... I said.." lets try this one more time,,,, in the slot two of course", and not for the first time the card works with two 6 pin cables from the Power supply

I was wondering why the board becomes unstable with card in pci-e slot one but not two.. three is dedicated slot and SOFTWARE went screwy when I installed board there... odd stuff...
I reverted to f3 as f7 gave me no measurable improvements...

So.. does anyone have an idea why slot one pci-e is problematic with OC? I am now not certain these boards are ready to OC with cards... I am OC with onboard graphics until resolved....
