    Question 8 Pin male to male PCI-E cable, UK, want, now, please

    Is this the rarest cable ever, or is my Googlefoo really really bad.

    I have a Antec True Power New Continous 750W Modular Power Supply (http://www.scan.co.uk/products/750w-...2v-atx-v23-psu). I cannot find my PSU box (hoping there are extra cables in there, there might not be!).

    There are 2 x 6 pin, and 2 x 8 pin modular ports free on my PSU, so I want to hook up these to the new graphics card that requires 2 x 8 pin PCI-E connectors. I tried one that only had 7 of the pins used, but the system would not post.

    I have emailed Antec's EU store, twice with no reply bought a cable of Amazon, which also didn't work.

    Does anyone know where to buy either of the following, in the UK:

    * 8 pin male to 2 x 8 pin male PCI-E cable
    * 8 pin male to 8 pin male PCI-E cable
    * 8 pin male to 2 x 6+2 pin male PCI-E cable
    * 8 pin male to 6+2 pin male PCI-E cable

    Back of PSU looks like this:


    Thanks for any help/advice.

    Paul.

    Unless Antec sell you one SPECIFICALLY for that PSU, I would go hunting for the box of cables!

    There is no standard to the PSU end of modular cables, as such any cable that might happen to fit could well end up in a fried PSU and other PC components as you have no idea how they are wired.
    Main PC: Asus Rampage IV Extreme / 3960X@4.5GHz / Antec H1200 Pro / 32GB DDR3-1866 Quad Channel / Sapphire Fury X / Areca 1680 / 850W EVGA SuperNOVA Gold 2 / Corsair 600T / 2x Dell 3007 / 4 x 250GB SSD + 2 x 80GB SSD / 4 x 1TB HDD (RAID 10) / Windows 10 Pro, Yosemite & Ubuntu
    HTPC: AsRock Z77 Pro 4 / 3770K@4.2GHz / 24GB / GTX 1080 / SST-LC20 / Antec TP-550 / Hisense 65k5510 4K TV / HTC Vive / 2 x 240GB SSD + 12TB HDD Space / Race Seat / Logitech G29 / Win 10 Pro

    Had a quick Google, male to female extenders are really easy to find. Male to male; very tough!

    The plug part numbers are here:-

    On the off chance you can make some yourself. Can't find them easily either :/

    Good luck! Interested to know how this goes on.

    We have a Antec rep on here who goes by the name of AceModder. You could try contacting him. His details are here.

    Thanks everyone, I've sent a message to AceModder. Last chance I guess, before having to buy a new one

    I will go on one last adventure is the loft, but I'm thinking foul play by the Mrs and its been binned.
