Hi, I want to replace my psu with the SF600. Did you guys need the PSU Power Supply Jumper Bridge Tool adapter?

Yes, please see my post in this very thread of what I bought to install my SF600 PSU - Parts list for installing SF600 in Node

Intel Skull Canyon NUC (NUC6i7KYK) - 1TB Samsung 960 EVO NMVe SSD, 32GB memory
Apple Mac Pro 2013 - Deca-core 3GHz Xeon, 32GB memory, 1TB Apple SSD, D700 dGPU, eGPU shared with above NUC.
AKiTiO Node - EVGA GTX 1080Ti SC2 Gaming, Corsair SF600 PSU, Cougar Vortex HDB 120 case fan

So to be clear, you can’t run the 1080ti in the Node without the adapter?
I’m looking to get this PSU also.

Hi all, yes two year old thread but whatever, it's relevant info!

Can anyone help me find a 3pin to 2pin adapter in the UK? My Amazon search magic appears to be failing.

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

Thanks God for this forum and folks!


Have a Thunder 3 with GTX Black Titan and the noise had been driving me insane ever since I got the enclosure. Had guts to just replace front fan with the reccomended Noctua and 2-3 pin adapter and this already is enough to lower the noise significantly. Not only is the replacement fan thinner, it creates more air flow and is barely audible. I still can hear the PSU fan, but will leave it at that as my AC and Dyson filter make more noise Smile


Any idea what to do with the stock fan? Smile
