Alrite, I'll get to it. I bought a new GPU and its too wide, the case won't close cause of the cable sticking out. So I thought: I'll just buy an adapter, right? Like an L shaped adapter and presto, job done, I can close my case (pun unintended). It is a GTX 1080, it has one 8 pin and one 6pin slot.

I live in Brazil, so buying from China is a better option for me, usually. I found this: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005002340050321.html
But it has two different 8 pin adapters: one is RVS and one is STD , I'm confused ?!?!?!? Which should I buy??!?!!?

you want the STD version, it will put the plug ontop of the card closer to the cpu. the RVS would point the plug down words and you could not plug your cable into it.


Its funny because the picture on Aliexpress has the plugs on the card upside down. I googled the gtx 1080 just to make sure.

Right about now, I'd be worried about the make and model of the case, since the connectors might not be the only issue you're going to have with the card, it might be that the case is too old for the innards/components and can result on the components cooking themselves.

Mind stating the specs to your build like so:
CPU:
Motherboard:
Ram:
SSD/HDD:
GPU:
PSU:
Chassis:

I'd avoid adapters or connectors for the time being and focus on whether a case would be your primary problem to solve.

I've used it for a while already, before it was a GTX 970. It was fineee...
