How can I buy a socket for one?
It's just a standard ass connector and yet no one makes one keyed tge same it seems.
I can't even find a way to specify the keying of the ones that I can find

    Wouldn't be that hard to convert it to an EPS12V and rewire a female one to whatever you're trying to charge. I did a bunch of these for custom PC motherboard connectors and they are pretty easy to work with.

      how would I convert it, just carve all the square plugs into dome plugs?

        Buy a male+female EPS12V kit and the little crimping tool. I would imagine a search for "how to crimp EPS connectors" would turn up some tutorials.

          It does not physically fit into an eps12v socket.
          The keying is different

            Modify the connector so it accepts the keying? I've had to do this before. Used a Dremel to fix a stupid plastic cunt sticking out

    You find a supplier and give them money.

      None of these are the correct keying dickface. If it was a common gpu or eps12v keying I would not have made this fucking thread.

      My plan so far is to either trim a 24pin socket to shape or buy a dell motherboard for $20 and cut the socket out, then 3d print an adapter that slides over it I can glue in place and provide flange mounting holes

        Listen, I know being completely fucking blind and unable to google is a setback, but there's no need to get pissy about it. The fact that you're able to still shitpost should be seen as an achievement. ATX CPU power socket (male), $.99 cent part. You're welcome.

          that's not the correct keying. OP wants top row square-round-round-square and bottom row round-square-square-round. the rows on what you're suggesting are inverted

            This. That in the pic is a gpu 8 pin, it's exactly opposite

        this should work, the key sequence you're looking for exists in the middle section of a 20 or 24-pin ATX connector. i suggest using a bandsaw or dremel because those plastic parts are tough cookies

        That sounds like effort... if you don't already have a Dell, what are you doing with the PSU? Why not just cut the cord and crimp a std connector on?

          Picrel, just bought a 3060 to replace my 1650

          I am open to using a standard connector but it needs to handle 18A and also there are some size considerations. An xt30 would work easily, I just think it would be more clean to use the original 8 pin since I will have to do the work 3x. I the gpu travels alone and I have a psu in every location I use it at. So it could get expensive and annoying if I did that.

          Also in the pic is a cut up 24pin.
          The other problem I haven't mentioned yet is that using these cable and pin types is not very good for a high connection rate connector. I could convert it to fixed through hole pins like with glue but I'm not sure how long that will last. I'd ideally like a FRP connector with fixed pins and set up for through hole so I can just cad up a pcb to solder it to and break out the connectors I need inside.
