Because Wolfie doesn't seem to want to sell me the review cables to find out, I'm going to guess that the x10 front panel 8pins (x2 EPS + x8 GRFX) are all pinned out the same, with let us pretend x4 ground pins in top row / x4 12v bottom row (an otherwise correct pinout for plugging in the 8-wire CPU 8pin)

*if so, left-to-right the GRFX cable top row 16g will grab x3 grounds, 4th/5th ground wires are jumped 18g into last slot (x5 ground wires trying to occupy x4 slots/pins = a pair a jumped 18g pair)

*At the bottom row, 16g grabs x3 12volt + 1 slot unused

*GRFX 6+2, therefore we might see x6 16g in the 6pin end, x2 18g = the 2pin. On closeup u can see the jumped 18g ground 2pin pair

single-8pin type GRFX.

Why would he want to? He'd get stuck with a psu with no cables...?

Yes, I'm having fun with the people who run this place. And in case you don't know how to negotiate? By expressing no interest in the chassis up front, I can offer less for it later in an attempt to grab up the whole thing. It'd either work or wouldn't. Besides, for all I know the review chassis was desoldered to find out what makes it tick, & you can figure out the rest

Wolfie's not selling anything anymore. Shipping rates are so high now there's no point, and I don't need the money like I used to.
