No, they don’t. They MIGHT come with a CD, a bridge for SLI or maybe a 6 to 8 converter, but I don’t think they do that any more since 8 is a new standard now.
Seriously? Do you think a tone like that is OK on a forum like this?
Geez. You must be confusing PSU’s and GPU’s.
The GPU means Graphic Processing Unit and is actually the chip ON the graphic card, but because graphiccard is tedious to type GPU has become the used frase. Also because nobody can buy a GPU without it allready being connected to a graphiccard it isn’t confusing either.
Graphiccards NEVER come with cables to connect to the PSU. (The PSU is the power supply unit, the converter of 220V or 110V to 12V etc for peripherals, but it ALSO have 4 pin and other connectors for the motherboard and the CPU (That 4 pin on an ATX PSU is also 12V if you wondered).
Some PSU’s have cables connected to them, others have cables you can connect as you need. (Called modular in case you wonder) All 6 and 8 pins deliver 12V.
That shit I know.
What the OP asks about is IF a 8 pin connector can be downgraded to a 6 pin by removing two cables.
A 6 pin can be converted to 8 pin with a converter, but CAN you safely do the reverse?
Now THAT shit I don’t know, so I tell him to read up.
But I have built many computers and swapped many graphiccards and used many converters and wondered why an 8 pin convertor basically just splits off one of the cables from the 6 pin and adds that to the two extra pins. Now I know. It is to spread the 12V over more cables to prevent overheating.
But I can not guarantee that all 6->8 convertors are built the same. I would be very surpriced if not, since this is an industry standard, but I CAN NOT GUARANTEE IT. I know I would play with it, but I do not reccomend him to do it. Does that make sense?
So I play it safe, shows him what I am not sure about (memory fades, stuff changes, new standards rises etc) and link to some simple texts to dig in to and tell him to read up.
Even you, coming on here tossing personal comments like that, I try to show respect. I think you have your reasons but I don’t care what they are though, you made sure of that
But I 100% fully agree that nobody should rely on forums. Read many, study shit, buy books, be adventurous, test shit out, fry some shit and evolve. But respect others.
