    Actually you could if the design is right - unless you (the vendor) have a new power supply design in mind.

    Anyway until the card is actually released or seen and tested.... it's all rumor mill and guesswork

    My two cents.
    NO you can't. Each pin on the connector can only handle around 7 amps - beyond that they can fail (melt). If a GPU requires a 12 pin connector, that means that under load, it needs more than an 8-pin connector can handle. If you try and push this through an 8-pin connector on the PSU to some adapter, the connector can fail under load.

    If instead you are talking about an adapter that combines two 8-pin PSU connector into a single 12 pin connector to the GPU, that would work.

    I'm hearing the same. But there's paper, and there's reality. Hopefully reality wins

    Does Nvidia think they can force companies to design and manufacture new PSU's and then expect everybody buys these PSU's to be able to run Nvidia 3000 series with a 12 pin connector? I hope they have some plan to make existing PSU's compatible...

    Hopefully it's that simple but a whole new pin out has also been mentioned so...

    an 8-pin 12V connector can easily support 1500-2000W without the cables even getting warm.

    EDIT: Oups sorry, make it half of that.

    I hadn't heard anything about the ROG AIOs in a while, and took a look just now.

    I see they also now have the ROG STRIX LC 360 series.
    They even have a white version that has ARGB, for white builds, and it looks really nice,(the inside of my Phanteks case is white)

    Only negative is, it doesn't have the Noctua NF-F12 iPPC fans that the ROG RYUJIN does, because of the ARGB use.
