Thanks for explaining that.

@steelkevin That is a funky looking 560. I don't even see it on PNY's site. What a dumb place for them to put the power connectors. I would have returned it for sure. Especially since you want to water cool down the road. Just get it over with and do it now. Trust me it will save you a headache down the road.
hmmm... that'd really be a pain in the ass. If I return it I can't get another one for that price and it'd take me 10+ € to send it back...
I could try contacting PNY's support to see where the hell that card came from. Explain why it's a problem and have them send me a regular one (RMA it). Not having the card for a couple of weeks isn't really a problem since gaming is a last choice of activity for me (I game only when I have nothing else to do, if I don't have the GPU I'll just organize things to do instead of only doing stuff when people ask) but it's obvious that I'd be happier if only that stupid retailer could've sent me a normal card
Yes, the power connectors would be better at the head of the card (is the right side the head ?)... as you can imagine my psu cables are kind of squeezed between the connectors and the rear pannel :s.
arf... tomshardware guys said they'd just keep it (maybe they're just weird lol, I don't really feel like keeping it anyway, to many cons about it).
Btw, I won't watercool a 560 ti anyway because looks matter to me and I want a transparent waterblock (which EK doesn't provide for the 560 ti). I'll probably be selling the 560 ti whenever something good (new) or a good deal shows up.
I'm really concerned about this GPU. How do you recommend I proceed ?
EDIT: **** ! Just checked the return policy of the website from which I ordered it. It's 15days for everything but some components (GPUs included) which have to be returned within 7days. I can't return it in time because I'm at my father's, over two hours from my place (mum's) where the box, CD, Manual, PCI / Molex cables... are. I'm only going back monday which means it'll have been over 7 days :s.
My only solution seems to be PNY's support :s.
If they don't want to send me a regular one in exchange of this one I could probably find some way to make it not work or not work as it should without them noticing it's my fault and sicne they don't seem to make them anymore by RMA'ing it I'd get a regular one.Edited by steelkevin - 12/27/11 at 12:17pm
