I've been having a bit of a Mendela Effect moment.
I recently bought a 2070 Super to upgrade from the 970 that came with my PC. I noticed that it didn't come with the 6 pin or 8 pin power cords required, my 970 was already hooked up to an 8 pin on the mobo, so I just needed to buy a 6 pin separately . No big deal or so I thought.
I've tried Fry's, Newegg, Microcenter, BestBuy, Amazon and no one seems to sell the 6 pin male to male cable I apparently need. Even using quotation marks to exact phrase search, even using Google site: instead of each stores' own search bar, the results either come back 6 to 8 pin adapter, 6 pin male to female, or 8 pin male to dual 6 pin male.
The only result I found was a French website thatd ship it over a month away, and a third party seller on Amazon/Newegg with 30% positive feedback.
It's like this cable doesn't exist. Not under parts and accessories on the graphics cards site (MSI), nor the dekdtops site (ASUS ROG) ,
Am I making a big mistake like thinking of the wrong cable, or why has my desperate search made me feel like I'm in one of those dreams where you can't scream?!
