No, this one was all my fault. I have no idea where I accumulated the incorrect cable, it was probably packaged with another power supply. My shop has had several back-ups for diagnosis and freebees that have come and gone on a semi-regular basis for several years now...
I constantly watch Craigslist's free section, & students at the local campus throw out incredible amounts of good working technology.

I didn't fry the card, just the power supply and the motherboard.
I imagine that cable was for another build from a few years back, but who knows. TIME TO CLEAN MY SPACE!!!
