What type of 8 pin molex the EXP GDC uses?

I've been trying to get an angled connector since I'm having trouble putting everything together in a custom case, so I bought an angled 8 pin adapter but it doesn't fit the exp gdc female 8 pin molex. I didn't know there were different kinds of 8pin power molex plugs so I just got the regular PCIE 8 pin angled adapter.

 

Does anyone here knows the name of the 8pin molex used in the EXP GDC?

Thanks in advance

Were you able to find an adapter? I am also looking for one. Have you also tired an angle HDMI adapter? Thanks

The 8-pin front face connector is used for a Dell DA-2 PSU input. It is not pin compatible with a PCIe 8-pin power connector. Can see it's pinout at:

You could instead use the side 6-pin PCIe pin output connector. While designed for output, it is all just wired back to the same 12V and GND that drives the slot so can be an input power connector.
