Whoever is going to build these will sell a lot!

Since many PSU dedicate a full 18-20amp rail for CPU (220w) while they usually consume 20-60w,  we need 4pin CPU to dual 6pin PCI-e adapter to use CPU amps for GPU

You can mod you PSU yourself it would usually void your warranty, unless you use a special tool to pull-out the connectors.

I modded about a dozens of PSU to pull juice from the 8pin connector,
I'm really tired of it, I use the special tool and even then it's a pain.

Please someone make this cable and sell them for BTC !

The maximum current per molex pin is 11A, or 130w at 12v. The single 4-pin to PCI-e power adapters are pushing the limits, I've had one smoke and char on the 4-pin end. There is a reason PCI-e has three pins, it is needed for the specified current.
