8-pin PCI-E connector on Z640

HP Recommended
Z640
Linux

We would like to add a nVidia Tesla K40 to our Z640 workstation. This GPU requires a 6-pin and 8-pin  PCI-E power connectors. The power supply of the Z640 has two 6-pin connectors with only 5 pins used. Is there an adapter that we can use to convert the 6-pin connector to a 8-pin connector, possibly using the a molex connector that is currently not connected to anything?

 

I see from the Quick specs of the workstation that the Tesla K 40 is sold with an upgrade kit for the Z640. Which solution is employed in that kit for powering the GPU?

 

Also, where can I find detailed specs for the 925 W power supply of the workstation, i.e. number and Amps of 12 V rails? These specs are missing in the Quick Specks sheet and in the Service and Maintenance Guide.

You need the N1G35AA  or 460621-002, this adapts the 6 to an 8pin
