    I got it working this morning
    I connected the third 12VHPWR loose contact to a PCI-E pigtail!!
    Is this recommended? Will it explode
    Do I cancel my order for a Corsair PSU and dedicated Corsiar 12VHPWR double contact? [​IMG]

    haha, I had assumed you would do this in the first place :p

    yeah, that is how I run mine, obviously you need all 3 connectors powered up.

    Nice!

    Ok
    But are there any risks involved? What do the experts say?

    I'm sure there are many opinions, but I went with the "Two 8 Pin at 300W and 75W from the slot is enough for my 320W GPU" option.

    Nice one thanks,,,
    According to the PSU calculator. I'm within spec. Now it's just the cosmetics. looks. I have a semi open Thermaltake Core P3 TG Pro, with extension cables hanging around and water cooling here and there.
    I ordered a 12VHPWR to 2 PCIE connector for my EVGA PSU from modDIY, twill come in about 4 to 6 weeks!! Just in time for the 5080 launch

    Has been running for a while with no problems and whisper quiet.
    I am very satisfied at first I was afraid to leave the PC on when I go away or when I am cooking
    but now i'm confident.
    My advice mount the plug if your GPU isn't in the case yet.

    Guys, just a question please, I tried googling if there are any melted cables affecting the 4080 but couldnt find any.
    Checking with you all if, because of the lower power draw, the melting adaptors are only affecting 4090s?

    Also, I got a corsair HX1200 and bought this cable. its a direct to PSU (to 2 PCIE power) whereas I saw my strix adapter is 3 PCIE power?
    Any issues you guys think if I use this? its just neater overall versus the one that came with the GPU

    I have an EVGA Supernova 850W SF PSU powering my MSI 4080. The MSI Adapter is also 3 cables. I discovered the card only shows a picture on windows boot if all 3 cables are connected to the PSU. My PSU has only 2 PCIE contacts! So I used the second connector from ONE the PSU cable and connected the third cable from the MSI adapter to that.. Hard to explain but it works. So long as all of the cables on the adapter (strix or MSI ) are connected the graphic card will get a proper signal and give a picture.
    Check my earlier post for a picture explanation.
    My build is a mess at the moment but I ordered a 12HPWR connector with only two cables for an EVGA PSU from moddDIY , and a Bykski waterblock for the card and other small water cooling parts. So clean build by mid-February.

    Will eventually invest in an ATX 3.0 PSU when there are more of them on the market

    HI! Apparently, the corsair cable is really supposed to be 2 cables (saw different videos about it) so im gonna just stick to it for now.
    got the HX1200 new as well cos i really trust only Corsair and Seasonic
