Item works 6/24/2020 8:17:47 AM

Pros: Seems fine. No obvious defects. Works with no problems. Seen a lot of reviews about connectors like this melting or catching fire and I suspect those people either had this connected to a sketch power supply to begin with or were trying to power something that required way too much power for something like this to handle in the first place. Using this to power a gtx 660 in a low spec fortnite build and so far it hasn't even gotten warm to the touch.

Cons: Wish the plastic parts were black instead of white but that's purely aesthetic lol. Seriously this product is just fine.

Overall Review: Sure if they're reasonable about how the plan on using it.

Seems to do the job 5/11/2020 9:02:23 PM

Pros: I used this to connect a new graphics card in a 2012 Dell XPS-8500 about a month ago. It seems to work.

Cons: None so far, though its sorta not clear whether a new power supply was also needed. OEM power supply seems to be capable of handling the new card.

Overall Review: No issues yet
