Default PCI-E Issues

I just bought myself a EVGA Superclocked GTX 760, and was excited to put it in.

My PSU is a Power & Cooling Silencer MkIII 500W that says, in it's specifications online, that it has 2 x 6+2 pin cables for PCI-Express. I have looked up and down and gutted my damn PC looking for the other 6+2 PCI-E cord. It is not anywhere to be found! Right now, with the one I do have, I have a 6+2 pin hooked into my current GTX 650 card, which is only a 6 pin card. I have the 6+2 hooked into that, but obviously without the +2 connected (I will show some pictures).

Everywhere online says that this model has 2 6+2 PCI-E cables, BUT I JUST CAN'T FIND THE OTHER ONE IN MY COMPUTER! They are only used for video cards, and it is just mo where to be found!

To my knowledge, you can't "buy" new PCI-E cables that can hook into your PSU. I am already looking at buying a new PSU, but I really want to just find this other cable!

Where the hell could this thing have gone?

For reference, that is what my PCI-E cord looks like. I find it weird how the +2 pin can't connect to the regular 6 to form an 8, but oh well.

Looks like a modular power supply, and if it came with the extra pci-e cable, then you could have mis-placed it. I don't know if you can get replacement cables from PC Power & Cooling, but you can try to call them and ask...

I see a bunch of empty power connections on that PSU, the cable has been placed somewhere other than the inside of the case...

Also, the +2 pin does connect to the 6pin form the 8pin connection, you have to situate it on the proper side of the plug for it to fit into the 8pin socket.
