    How can it be connected directly to the PSU? And can you please test it and let us know whether it is safe or not? :/

    Well, there's a shop in Elephant Road named Johan Computers that did it right in front of me and charged 200/= to a kid who bought a 7950GT and didn't have 6 pin connectors with his delux PSU so I guess it's safe as long as you know what you're doing.
