also ive no idea where to get the bloody adapter from. EVGA dont supply on outside the US :'(
AGAIN: Look at any 6+2-pin on the market. It's a standard 6-pin with two ground wires tapped in. Take a look at some of the modular PSU's that have 8-pin PCIe connectors. Most of them have only 6-pins at the modular interface.
Evga tried to spread a little FUD about adapters catching fire and stuff, but they had no proof of this. When Nvidia launched the GX2, they notified partners of the interference problem three days before launch date. Most partners weren't prepared to address the issue. What does most companies do that's unprepared for a situation? Spread FUD.
That said, I honestly DO NOT BLAME EVGA. I am NOT an EVGA hater. It's totally Nvidia's fault for not fit checking PSU's with the GX2 in the first place.
If you can't find an adapter, just make your own ground wires. Do you have a PSU pin-removal kit? Every modder should have one in their tool box. You have four PCIe connectors on that PSU and only one GX2, right? Pop two ground wires from one of the other PCIe connectors and plug them into the last two pins of the graphics card. DONE.
