Why not put 6/8pin directly into GPU?

Noob question,

Why do you not put 6/8pin directly into GPU even if it's on powered riser? And how you go if you have 8pin card when all risers are with 6pin connector?

    it's due to PSU's not having that many 6/8 pin connectors. they do have multiple 4 pin molex and/or SATA power though, so they boosted efficiency by creating converter cables.

    same story for the 8 pin. you can get a 6 to 8 pin adapter/converter cable or one's that take 2x 4 pin molex and create a single 8 pin connector. :)
