I think that it would depend on the Motherboard but on the few mother boards I have had there also is a 4 pin plugin

Check DirectCanada/NCIX and search on cables, my cooler master case came with an 8 pin EPS extension, so they do exist. I also use it, allowes me to route that cable back behind the mobo tray and up to the top of the tray where a small hole is cut to allow it to pass through to the mobo itself.

I was looking for one last year and couldn't find anything locally. I eventually ordered from Performance PCs.

Here are the ones they carry:

8-Pin (EPS12V) Extension Cable 12 Inches - Sleeved [8-PIN-EXT] : Performance-PCs.com, ... sleeve it and they will come

8-Pin (EPS12V) to 4+4-Pin EPS12/ATX Extension Cable 12 Inches - Sleeved Products Model: 8-PIN-4+4-PIN-EXT [8-PIN-4+4-PIN-EXT] : Performance-PCs.com, ... sleeve it and they will come
