no that is not a ground pin , this is a 12v pin , and he cant use that port for graphics card unless he used molex to 8pin adaptors , and the only case he would find himself in need of adaptors for psu that already has 6 x8pin pcie connectors is that if he was using it for mining

That PSU is abused , damaged and maybe damaged internally DO NOT BUY IT

I found a rm1000i power supply for just 5 more bucks.
Is used but is working perfectly(how the seller describes it).
Opinion?

a PSU is the worst pc component to buy used , always buy a new psu , specially for a high end system and specially with how a lot of high end psu's on the used market these days are from mining rigs due to decrease in cryptocurrency

I would not trust that PSU for any use beyond something where the PSU and all connected components are expendable.

And even then, depending, the PSU could overheat and start a fire. Who knows.

Do not put your PC or any other computer at risk by using the PSU.

Get a new PSU with full warranty - unfortunately that is going to cost more but the risk to your computer will be much less.
