    Default 400-500W good PSUs with 4 PEG connectors

    Is there anything similar currently in the market?

    For instance, I can get 4 PEGs on the Bitfenix Whisper M just with the 650W SKU.

    Nothing under the 500W as far as I know. With 550W or less there is FSP Hydro X 550W, Zalman GoldRock ZM550-XG, Enermax Platimax D.F. 500W, XFX XTS 520W Fanless, Super Flower Golden Silent 500W, be quiet! Dark Power Pro 10 550W, be quiet! Dark Power Pro 11 550W, Seasonic Platinum Fanless 520W, FSP Xilenser 500W, EVGA SuperNOVA GS 550W, Enermax Digifanless 550W and a Lian Li PE-550W SFX-L.

    Jeez... what a shame... what about PEG splitters for 150w cards like the 1070s, Mask?

    With the modular PSUs, it's rather common to use 8pin CPU connectors and that according to EPS12V specification. Well, except Seasonic they use 8pin PCIe connectors with EPS12V layout...

    And with 8pin connectors 4x8pin = 600W is a rather bad idea on a 400W PSU. Because you can expect people to use this the way you don't want them to...

    I would make my own cable, but one per gpu... it wouldn't be very hard.

    It should have been, but with two F(uckin')TWs by EVGA no, it is not.

    May I ask why the FTW's?

    I'd rather take Asus Strix any day over EVGA FTW...
