I have a S3+ ASIC miner and 500w PSU

My question is that what do I need to convert a 4+4 PCI-E into a 6+2 PCI-E or two 6+2 PCI-E. Thanks in advance

Use a converter cable. They have so many on amazon: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=pci-e+converter+cable&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Apci-e+converter+cable

  • Thanks for your advice Jimmy Song, I tried using various converter cables and each of the converter cable were burnt else making the main PCI-E wiring hot as hell, converting 8 pin PCI-E to two 6+2 is not a good idea. After taking three attempts and trying different converter cables i got a new PSU which completely works fine. Commented Mar 22, 2016 at 15:13
