Okay so I got a strix 1080 with an 8 pin and a 6 pin power connector.
But the only 8 pin my psu has is a P8/P4 cable, that is supposed to connect to my motherboard's P8 slot.
My PCIE power connectors (ive got 3 cables labeled as VGA 1,2 and 3) split into two parts after connecting to the psu PCIE power slot. Both of the cables coming from the 1 slot end in 6 Pin + 2 Pin split heads.
Problem with that is the 2 pin head has a little notch that doesnt fully allow it to go into my 8 pin power connector.
However my gpu came with an adapter that fuses together 2 6 ping connectors into 1 8 pin.
So my question is this: Do I need to use the adapter on one of the PCIE cables to plug it into my 8 pin and use another PCIE cable's head to plug into the 6 pin?
Or should I stick to using 1 PCIE cable for both the 6 pin and 8 pin ?
