True, but I think the risk of unseated connections would be lower than the risk of overly-curved wires when the tolerances are so restrictive. People need time to get familiar with the quirks, limitations, and dangers of the new HPWR connector.The only problem with adapters is the extra potential points of failure.
Yeah, the majority of people should be able to make 1 right angle adapter work. I said 4 because some setups may benefit from up, down, and left power wire connections. I didn't want to assume everyone is using the traditional ATX case with standard motherboard orientation -- I know I'm not.Only one adapter is necessary to plug into the connector on the card. The 4 plugs on the other side of the adapter don't need any additional adapters.
