Why don't you offer a 4x8pin to 12VHPWR direct cable?

Using 4 x 8pin for a direct 12VHPWR cable is quite silly, and this is why you will never see any PSU manufacturers offering a 4x8pin direct 12VHPWR cable either.

Technically, of course we can make a 4 x 8pin direct 12VHPWR cable, and charge more for this. But we just don't want to make a unless product with no benefit to our customers.

A modern PSU 8-pin port can supply 300w and more, so why are you connecting 4 x 300w (1200w) to a 12VHPWR 600w port?
