Hello,
changing a lot of GPUs, sometimes with a little effort, damaged the 8pin to 6-2pin power cable of my ASUS XG Station Pro. It's like a bad periodontal disease, only worse. 🙁

Does anyone know where to get exact this cable? @itsage, do you have an idea where I can get one?

I didn't find anything suitable in amazon. Perhaps you can help with a link? That would be nice.

I have not experienced this wear issue. PCIe male 8-pin to male 6+2-pin cable is harder to find but I believe this SilverStone cable should work.

@itsage,

thank you for this tip.

I couldn't find the cable because my country's amazon or my country's Silverstone reseller don't have it in their assortments. I had already bought some female 8pin to male 6+2 pin extension from Silverstone to have a temporary solution and not stress those pins any further.
I am still looking for a male 8 to male 6+2 cable in EU.

You could also recrimp the ends of the cables and with new terminals (like these). There are plenty of resources when you look up "PSU cable sleeving" for redoing the ends of cables.
