    I have just been trying to find a dual 6 pin mini to 8 pin Pcie cable for my RX580. I have an adapter cable from ebay and I have to say I don't like the quality of it.

    anyone have an amazon link or supplier link that ships fast? a quality one!

    I got a quality one from AliExpress but it was definitely not fast shipping (took a little over two weeks to the USA). I'm really happy with it though... connectors all feel sturdy and it's sleeved which makes it look tidy.

    Since you already have one (I know you don't like the quality but at least it works, right?) why not get the one from AliExpress and just use the existing cable in the interim?

    Gotta say, the cable I got was Grade A+ from AliExpress. Quality!

    Thanks for the Ali link, I think I found one now which look top notch quality from Latvia. Not fast shipping some 5 days but I can use what I got until then.

    Thanks

    I'm surprised that there are so many sources for such a relatively obscure and specific need. Pleasantly surprised of course.

    AFAIK these cables work for only one scenario, a cheesegrater Mac Pro upgrading its GPU to one that takes 8-pin power.
