5 out of 5 eggsWorked perfectly

Pros: Inexpensive
Easy to install
Works as intended

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Upgraded to a ASUS R9280X-DC2T-3GD5 Radeon R9 280X video card and didn't realize that card needed a 6 pin and an 8 pin PCI-E connect (Asus was one of the only cards that needed an 8 pin and I didn't realize until I received it). My PSU only had 2X 6 pin PCI-E connectors but this adapter worked perfectly for a quick and easy fix. Will probably upgrade my PSU early next year when I upgrade to an 8 core CPU but for now this works perfectly.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes Exactly whats Needed

Pros: I installed a Radeon HD 7950 which required two 8 pin power connectors. And since my power supply only had one 8 pin and one 6 pin connector, this adapter cable was definitely the missing link.

Everything is all good now.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsGreat adapter

Pros: Adapts a 6 pin PCIe power connector from the power supply to a graphics card that requires an 8 pin PCIe connection. Simply plug it in and go.

Cons: If I had to name a con, the wires used to jumper the ground connections over to the two extra pins are a little on the thin side (20 gauge as opposed to 18 gauge for the other wires in this connector as well as the wires coming from my Corsair power supply).

Other Thoughts: This adapter works perfectly with no issues whatsoever. I am using it to power an XFX Radeon HD 7950 that requires a 6 pin and 8 pin connection with an older power supply that only has 6 pin PCIe outputs. The owners manuals from many cards say not to use an adapter like this, but this adapter is built exactly the same way as the 6+2 pin connector found on many high end modern power supplies.

5 out of 5 eggsSimple and Works.

Pros: I received the 6pin to 8pin last night and was able to install it into the Radeon HD6970 that I had purchased and apparently threw the 8pin away at some point. Overall, it installed perfectly and everything is working.

Solid design, and clicks right into place.

Cons: The only gripe I have (and it's a really small one) is that the cable is really stiff. It took some fandangling to get it into a good curve.

5 out of 5 eggsJust an adapter

Pros: Well made good quality but still is just an adapter probably cost around a buck. thou saves you from upgrading to power supply with 8 pin pci ex. for $100 or more.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Still same just way to much money.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect

Pros: Works great, a must when you need 8 pin plugs for your video cards. Running 2- 4870x2 cards in crossfire and the plugs work great. Saves you money(pay $12 each or $200+ for new power supply)

Cons: cons? Well, if you don't buy it, then thats the cons.

Other Thoughts: Dell xps 730x
i7-920@ 3.6mhz
Corsair dominator 6gb dr3 1866mhz
(2) ati visiontek 4870x2(4gb ram) crossfired
