    Use an VRM from a 8800gtx on a GTX570 ?

    That really doesn't have any benefit.

    But using VRM from 570 on a 8800gtx is good

    Finally found it: http://www.overclockers.com/2011-xtremesystems-ces-party-pictures/

    It was GTX480 VRMs on a GTX580.

    I've seen 8800GTX/Ultra VRMs on a GTX570 somewhere too, but that was because the VRM from the GTX570 popped.

    Look at almost any 4-pin molex to 6-pin PCI-E adapter, as well as most mid-low end PSUs.

    Not even on the mid-low psus I've seen. If the psu you are considering is like that, it's time to consider a different one.

    I never use these PSUs, I'm just stating they are out there, and the PCI-E standard states the middle pin is optional on a 6-pin and required on a 8-pin. Just because you've never seen one without the 3rd pin doesn't mean it is required by the standard, and doesn't mean connectors without it don't exist.:toast:

    Some of the 2x Molex to PCIe 6-pin adapters I've seen omit the second pin, which confirms that it can be removed when trying to cut costs.
