AX850 with 8 pin GPU

Quote

Will it harm the GPU if I plug one of them and leave the other 6+2 pin hanging?

No.

Will the GPU get full power just from 8 pins?

Yes. Why else would they design it in such a way 馃

So I'm upgrading my old GTX680 to RTX2070 that has only 8 pin connector (MSI RTX2070 Ventus). So the PCIe cable that comes with the PSU is 12 pin to 2x(6+2) pins. Will it harm the GPU if I plug one of them and leave the other 6+2 pin hanging? Will the GPU get full power just from 8 pins?


note: PSU: AX850 Gold
