Could be an indirect reason for the 280's overheating issue ?

Never thought of that... does anyone who doesn't use a converter have the overheating issue?

jAkUp doesn't have overhating issue... he's using Thermaltake 1200W which has the 3x 8-pin connectors, that's why I bought that PSU to be safe

Nope, no chance guys. I went and got a new PSU just because I thought it might be the converters a week ago when I was having trouble. The same thing happened. Also, there are many people using the converters without any problems... And a lot of people not using them that do...

In my Asus package there was a 2x6 to 8 pin and a 8pin to 2x 6pin
And a mouse mat and a nice CD/DVD holder.

Never, if something blows up, its due to inefficient or bad PSU, not 2x6pin PCIE to 1x 8pin PCIE connector (if it was 6pin to 8pin PCIE connector then there can be problem).
