Hello!!

  I was just wondering and kinda messing with it a fair bit, Okay, so you no how on a molex off a a older psu the floppy drive connector is connected and you can take it off by un hinging the clamps at the end of the cable when you pull the terminal out of the block connector...I have one of those but its a PCIE cable and it has the end that plugs into the corsair 750i and the other end plugs into the graphics card etc. well mine is one of the ones wit the the split ends on it, like the end that plugs into the graphics card splits in two so there are two 6+2 connectors. I was wondering if i could take that second cable off the same way as the floppy cable off a molex would? I no i can i have done it, you know? pulled the terminal out and undid the clamps pulled the cable up and cut it off then put it all back together. I am just wondering if this is safe to use and i no i no im not plugging it into my 780 until someone says its okay. But i need a 6 pin and a 8 and i want to just run 2 separate cables instead of that split thing. if anyone is confused about the way i described that or has no clue look up lutro0s video on molex sleeving he shows it in the very begining of the video

 

 IF anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated THANKS!!!!:)

I am a bit confused. Your video card requires a 6 and a 8 pin? whats wrong with using the stock cabling? is there not enough? you can get molext to PCI express adaptors decently cheap

what is wrong with the splt able? I mean you can certainly just cut the wires and get rid of the end, if your not plugging it into anything, but if it were me Id just leave it and stash it somewhere in case you ever add another video card.

well i figure if that happens i have 4 of these cables i need 2 of them to cut so if i ever get another card i will sleeve the other cables but the split is only maybe 5 or 6 inches so its ugly and it does not make it back to the inside of the mobo tray so i think for cable sleeveing simpleness it will help the aesthetics and difficulty by cutting the other short section off but thanks for your help!!

Doesn't sound safe to me at all. Why not just buy a modular power supply if you care this much about cabling being neat.

if you cut them and cap them it should be safe. Though if it were me and they were in the way I would just attach them to the original cable via electrical tape or twist ties, gets them out of the way and still alows for future use, as some video cards require 2 of these PCI connectors (hence why you have 4)

Maybe corsair sells the specific modular cables you want for this.  http://www.corsair.com/en/type-3-sleeved-black-pci-e-cable
