    Re: EATX12v psu cable to short (motherboard 8 pin thing)

    Perhaps so it can be used with two graphics cards with 4 pins each, or two 4 pin connectors instead of an 8.

    Or how about this:
    http://www.google.co.uk/products/cat...CCUQ8gIwBjgK#p

    8 to 8

    I would also say the 4+4 would be like the 20/24pin ATX cables you get where the extra 4 pins are detachable to make it fit in the smaller connector.

    Not everyone has a motherboard with EPS 12V (the 8 pin connection). So if you make an extender that will do both 8pin EPS 12V and 4pin ATX 12V you can sell one product to more people Plus some people might have an EPS 12V supporting PSU now, and be planning on upgrading to an EPS 12V supporting mobo in the future, so a splittable connection would suit them for both.
