I dont trust molex at all but it's safe I guess so you can use a 2 molex to 8 pin cable or if you can splash out more money then you can buy a different psu

Yikes!



You're in fact quite lucky you failed to power an RX 470 with this power supply because if you did, you may no longer have an RX 470. Or maybe no longer have a PC.

The only adapter you need is a garbage bag, to convert this power supply to the landfill.

There's also a later model, upgraded from a fake 460W with 240W on the +12V rail to a fake 460W with a 312W on the +12V rail.



Well, they didn't make it any safer or stop lying or use something better than shoestring licorice with the wiring. But they did put a big fancy plastic red X on the power supply, to indicate how Xtreme it is!
