Hey guys,

I had a quick question about Corsair's HX12000 PSU:

http://www.corsair.com/en-us/hx-series-hx1200-1200-watt-80-plus-platinum-certified-fully-modular-psu-na

Instead of using a sata to 6 pin cable to power my risers (http://www.ebay.com/itm/USB3-0-PCI-E-Express-1x-To-16x-Extender-Riser-Card-Adapter-SATA-6Pin-Power-Cable-/192183840986?hash=item2cbf0cb0da:g:1W0AAOSw42dZE79T), would I be able to directly connect them to the peripheral ports on this PSU?

I'm trying to upgrade/move away from my current sata to molex powered risers, and was planning on spiting six 6+2 PCIE cables to power my GPUs and risers. However, I just realized that this expensive PSU eats a 8 pin slot for the 4+4 CPU..which leaves me with 5 slots for my 6+2 PCIE cables.

Any suggestions would be great!

Thanks!

But its not worth it, IMHO, SATA works just fine for powering your type of riser.
