yep the PCIe cable fits and works as I said. Potentially the documentation is wrong or the ASUS board may sense and reverse polarity if a PCI cable is inserted instead of a 6-pin EPS12V cable and either automatically reverse currents or simply shuts down the cable (so it is not used).
I just know the PCIe cable I use works or at least it does not cause any harm - so far (famous last words).

I know this thread is no longer in active discussion, but for others with the same question I'd like to confirm the OP's conclusion.
The R6EE manual shows pin 1 as ground, while, as others have shown above, 6-pin PCIe connector put 12V on this pin. Arnie Saknussemm accurately stated "No ifs no buts...the 6pin is for a PCIe cable to supply extra EPS power...full stop." Getting a custom cable made following the R6EE EATX-12_3 pinout in the R6EE manual would be a very bad idea(tm) .

My big issue is clearly labeled 12V ATX and shows reverse polarity of what is on a PCIE cable. If it was labeled 6 pin PCIE or anywhere in the manual saying connect 6 pin PCIE O would not bat an eye at it. There are several YouTube vids floating around directing to swap pins at the PSU end to make it match the 12V all being on the outward edge/latch part of connector but I dont exactly believe everything I see on YouTube either If I cant get a direct answer I will try with just the two 8pin connectors and see what type of voltage shows up on those pins. Not that I need them as I was getting plenty of power out of the 8 pin + 4 pin ATX on RVIE for for decent OC so long as I have active cooling on the VRMs. Omega seems to run fine on 2x8 pins. I am certainly not going to run LN2 but from an engineers perspective the extra power connection will take some load off of the others and result is less heat to VRMs in the end. Two reasons I chose this board over the omega. Better heat sink, more clearance on ram latches and the ability to gain 4 more PCIE lanes with a 109XX cpu which I may try if a 10980XE every shows up in stock. Not a big fan of ordering over MSRP with manufacturer drop ship. Other wise I will stick with my 9940x. My only wish is for someone to develop a VRM only active block for this puppy. Not a fan of monoblocks and the Bitspower one just does away with the color OLED and I/O shield. New EK looks better but I have tried several monoblocks and never been happy. Either CPU suffers or VRMs suffer.
No need for another thread on this... No ifs no buts...the 6pin is for a PCIe cable to supply extra EPS power...full stop.
