    Four +12 V wires and four grounds? I think you're mixing with the CPU power connector. PCI-E are three +12 V wires and five grounds.

    The way they ground the second connector on those cables is bizarre, BTW (and given its price, unjustifiable).

    Edit: also there's way to have five grounds even on the PCI-E first connector. Since they made those D-connectors on the PSU interchangeable with CPU power connectors, those connectors on the PSU side should have four three +12 V and four grounds. So, it lacks one ground for the PCI-E connector, they just get the missing grounds on the PCI-E connector connecting from one of the other three grounds. This is the disadvantage of doing those connectors interchangeable.

    If you look at the picture that coincides with the sentence that ehume quoted, you'll see that the ribbon is four and four. Of course, the CONNECTOR has three +12V and five grounds, but I would venture to guess that each ribbon is either +12V or ground.

    They're going to be trading on glowing reviews of the MiJ product with a confusingly similar name in order to sell this slightly downmarket. Not a bad strategy, and it's not like the people who end up buying this unit will notice the ripple or standby weirdness.
