Exclamation Universal Modular Power Supply Cable

Ok, so long story short:
I had a video card burn up due to a fan locking up and overheating. A friend of mine gave me a GTX 470 by ASUS. I have a Thermaltake Modular Power supply. I do not have (cannot find) the PCI-e cables for it. The GTX 470 requires two six pin connectors. I do, however, have two Corsair PCI-e Modular cables. They would fit other than a solid piece of plastic just needs a slit cut into it. My question is, IF I cut this piece of plastic, are the pins going to be universal as far as the power cables? Or am I going to get a Ground where there should be a +12V Cable? Thanks in advance!

You can get this: Newegg.com - Link Depot POW-ADT-PCIE PCI Express power adapter

I wouldn't recommend chip off the plastic.

Thanks, that was actually what I was looking for originally. I couldn't find them to save my life. I actually ended up finding my Thermaltake cables. Didn't matter anyway as my 850W power supply was not sufficient enough to run this card. Thanks for your help though!

As far as I've seen they are all exactly the same, how else would you be able to buy a psu and ensure it will run any gpu you have.
