The bigger part should be able to connect to the PSU.

I'm not sure. The last time I saw a female Molex connector was on some kind of an adapter that had both the male and female Molex connectors. Only, I don't remember how I obtained it.

I probably just have to wait till I get the mother board main thing was testing the PSU to see if it worked ran pretty quiet in normal mode so I'm sure hybrid mode just the same the true test will be when it's under load but thanks for the recommendation on the XFX things a beaut.

Your power consumption with this setup won't ever get high enough for you to really put this PSU to the test. :)

Yea true but got it for $5 more than the 550w so I couldn't pass that up plus I figure it leaves plenty of room for future addons. now just trying to find comparable white sleeved cables (Full not extensions)
