So i have a OCZ 1000W pro x stream. It has only 4 six-pin connectors. I was thinking about just putting the 6 pin where the 8 pin is suppose to be. Is this even going to work, should i be worried about breaking/frying anything?
by the way, this is for my SIG RIG.
You could always just buy some 6pin>8pin adapters.
lol, im trying to save up for a good liquid cooling system. any money i do save right now is good. Im going to leave it as is for now, then sell this PSU and my other one and pick up a new one, or if someone want's to trade for like a 850W or above, feel free to pm me.

If i replace the plug (from 6 to 8) what steps would i take to make this 6 pin PCI-E connector a 8 Pin PCI-E connector.
Sorry if im being a bit buggy, im tired, sleepy, not great with power supplies, and just need this out of the way. lol

Rather than live with the adapters your going to buy a whole new PSU?
It's really not that big a deal, I believe the extra two pins are just grounding pins anyway.
lol, yes im that picky!, the smallest things bother me for some reason. The cable management is awsome though. I also need some more molex connectors freed up for a Liquid cooling system, fan controller, and a few other things. the adapters hog all my molex connectors. D:
