PC P&C Silencer 750 Quad, 8 pin PCI-e connector?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I ordered the PC P&C Silencer 750 EPS12V from newegg a little over a year ago, and received a Silencer 750 Quad instead (they weren't making the non-quads anymore).

The specifications at http://www.pcpower.com/power-supply/...crossfire.html say that it has two 6 pin PCI-e connetors and two 8 pin PCI-e connectors, but mine only seems to have four 6 pin PCI-e connectors. Was there some sort of adapters or optional cables that came with this PSU that I mistakenly discarded, or were they introduced in a revision of the product after I ordered mine?

Mine has four 6 pin PCI-e connectors but came with two 6 pin to 8 pin adapters as well. I'll be damned if I can remember what I did with them though lol.

Is there a drawback to using adapters rather than actual 8 pin cables (do they even make PSUs with 8 pin cables?). Can I buy them separately?

8pin connectors just have 2 extra grounds if I remember correctly. Can anyone back me up on this? Yes you can buy them separately. HERE

I wouldn't PM him because that defeats the purpose of having a public forum.

The extra 2 wires are just ground wires.

And you can get the adapter for a little less here:
