Will this cable work with a power supply with only a PCI-E 6 pin connector on to the new Nvidia GTX 1060 OC as the card is rated at 150w and requires a 8 pin connector. will this cable do the job?

Asked by: MrEasyUK
This will indeed change the 6 pin to an 8 pin connector.

Will this work with a GTX 970?

Asked by: danny87
it converts 6 pin PCI power to 8 pin PCI power ... the card matters not if you have 6 pin PCI and need 8 pin PCI .. this is the cable you need ...

Would this allow me to plug in a r9 380 to my corsair modular psu?

Asked by: Rory4881
I would expect a corsair modular PSU to have both 6 and 8 pin connectors, but if it only has 6 pin then yes this will convert a 6 to an 8 ... please note if you card has both 6 & 8 pin you must populate both of them with power.

Will this allow me to connect an EVGA Supernova 750W PSU to my GeForce GTX470 graphics card? Will it provide enough power on it's own or should I go for a different cable configuration?

Asked by: Mercatoris
I am pleased to advise the product you mentioned will do exactly what you require.

Presumably this is 6 *PIN* male end to an 8 socket female end, so one could use it to convert a non-modular PSU 6pin PCIe cable for an 8pin PCIe gfx card? 

Asked by: woad
This is 6 pin femaple to 8 pin male, and would adapt an existing dedicated 6 pin PCI-e power for a graphics card into the 8 pin variation of the same.
