    I'm aware that it is an older, less efficient design but really, that price is just too sweet to pass up, I just ordered it !

    Yup, zfactor spawned another thread about the US pricing, we canucks are used to the "snow tax", ehh!

    On a unrelated note, newegg is giving me a lot of grief over using a $50 USD gift card code I got for xmas toward this purchase (thank you Lostlogic !), stay tuned...

    edit : I know that the rank & file CSRs probably have no way to turn a newegg.com gift card into a newegg.ca since they probably are two distinct financial entities but still, an inbreed chimp could sort this out for a ripe banana and a couple grapes...

    AFAIK, 2x4 +12V are on the first 3 pins, the rest being grounds, 2x3 are +12V/ optional NC *OR* +12V/+12V and the rest being grounds, no need to cut & splice any wires if all 3 +12V pins on your 2x3 are live, a 2x3 should fit a standard 2x4 and enough juice will flow through if the first three pins are +12V.

    Don't hesitate to correct me, I don't pretend to be an authoritative source on the matter.

    Video cards that require 8-pin power connectors will not run if the extra two pins are not in use.
