Now this I agree with. It would be pointless to put a 8-pin connector on there, and lose a lot of customers in the process because of that, if both the 6-pin and 8-pin could supply the same amount of power.
But back on my question, I also can't see why my solution should cause any problems. If those adapters are designed to supply the right amount/sufficient power, then they should work long-term. I'm confident my Seasonic would be up to the task. The only issue is where the adapters would introduce problems themselves.
