6 Pin PCIe to 8 Pin EPS adapter
So I need another 8 Pin eps connector and was wondering if this adapter would allow me to turn a 6 pin PCie to 8 pin EPS. The picture looks like what I want, but the description of which end is male/female doesn't coincide with the picture. Anyone use these types of adapters before? Will it work?

why do you want 6 to 8?

Yup, it'll work. I have one just like that. Building another MP rig?

Thanks for the replies. I picked up a enermax platimax psu thinking it was single rail, but it was not. (Guess i didnt read the instructions) So I don't have enough current on the native eps connector to use a splitter to get a second eps. So hopefully I can convert a pcie to eps.

what model? the 750w has 2 sets of 8eps @ 100amps

and what MB are powering a dual cpu ?

If you have an extra 8pin EPS connector you really could just use two staples to pull the 6pin and put them in the 8pin EPS (in the correct place obviously). I did this w/ one of my SR-2s and it worked perfectly.

you can also compose a 8pin EPS from 2 molexes, the adapter is around 8$, i did it like this for my 2P folder, Supermicro H8DM8-2.
