What actual power supply do you have? Typically the newer ones that can provide that much power have the 6+2 already on the cables.

I'd go with a 2x6pin --> 1x8pin adapter, and a 2x4-pin(molex) to 1x6pin adapter. The PSU should have enough juice overall no problem. But the idea of trying to just turn a single 6-pin into a single 8-pin (let alone two like that adapter does) doesn't seem smart.

Anyone have any testing results with 2x6 vs 1x6 1x8?

I will pick up an x8 converter and see if I have better results than my current 2x6. will post back if I remember.

Well after testing, shows marked improvement with 6&8 vs 6&6

Max stable Overclock with 2 6's was - 958 core. 1023 core with 6&8
Memory stayed the same for both.
