Where to buy PCI-E plugs.

Anybody seen these anywhere:

8 Pin PCI-E extension cable



KustomPC have them, but their prices are completely stupid. £8 for a bit of wire and 2 plugs. I bet it'd be 99p on ebay if I could find one :s

Akasa produces 8pin mobo extensions, don't know if they are identical? I think they both have the same plugs.

A dutch webshop sells them for €4 but getting them to send it to the UK in an envelope isn't easy I guess.

Yeah I was gonna suggest Kustom, I bought one for around £6 way back that turned out to be a psu-mobo extension. They sent me the right one foc, so now have both

I didn`t find any1 else tbh.

EDIT: hang on a sec I might have that wrong. I was looking for 6pin to 8pin, so I might have the 8pin-8pin... I`ll check when I get home. It's urs foc if it's the right one.

Ahh really close mate but no Cigar I'm afraid. I was looking at those and I think the layout of PCI-e vs Motherboard connectors is slightly different in that some of the holes are circular, some square thus making them non-interchangable ;(

Damn I thought they would be all the same, or is there a difference between mobo 8pin and GFX 8pin?

Yeah i'm sure they are different. The only way you could plug one into the other is with extreme force.

Maybe, though I'm verging on letting KustomPC bum rape me out of £14 for two little bits of wire.
