5 out of 5 eggsGood for going to X-fire

Pros: Hasn't blown up. Seriously, I added these adapters to my 700W OCZ power supply that only came with 2 PCIe 6 pin connectors. I bought 2 of these and was able to add a second HD6870 card to my system for Crossfire. Haven't had any stablitiy issues with the card or system. In fact, I've had no issues with any Athena power adapter products.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I felt the wires to make sure they weren't warm. I had one adapter long ago catch fire...no kidding.. that was for a floppy drive power plug, which was the odd part. Now I check to see if the wires become warm on new adapters. These checked out ok.

5 out of 5 eggsOne of the BEST cables I have ever owned.

Pros: Came out of the plastic bag easily. Plugged in perfectly and works great!

Cons: I couldn't find any , and I looked for hours at the adapter. I just couldn't come up with any issues.

Other Thoughts: This is one of the best cables I have ever owned. The colors are perfect and it plugs into the pci-x cards with ease. If you could own just one adapter in the world, this MUST be the one you own. (Seriously, this is a cable. What is there really that can be said about it).

1 out of 5 eggsReceived defective unit

Pros: Unfortunately, I couldn't even use it, so I'm not sure if there are any pros.

Cons: The unit I received provided no power to my GPU, and upon trying to connect the adapter, it just pushed out the cords.

Other Thoughts: Looks like I'm stuck with integrated graphics.

5 out of 5 eggsWorked fine.

Pros: Worked fine right out of the box. No issues

Cons: None. It's a cable. You'd have to try pretty hard to make it terrible.

Other Thoughts: Was able to install 2nd 7870 without getting a new PSU!

5 out of 5 eggsSimple solid cable

Pros: Works fine. Allowed me to properly connect a dual 8-pin HD7970 graphics card with a PSU that had sufficient power, but only lone 6+2 and 6 pin PCI-E connectors. Did not explode.

Cons: Didn't really need the second Y split connection so it takes up a bit of extra space, but it's not a bad option to have.
