The included pcie cables that came with my corsair rm850x have this dual plug thing, and I've never seen it before (it is my first time building a pc), and I'm confused as to how I plug it in
(Because the picture quality sucks, the ends on the left both say "PCIe", and the one on the right says "Type 3")
No manual I look at helps, and I can't seem to find anything like this online.
Some graphics cards have 2 8 pin connectors, or 1 6 pin or whatever else. The 8 pin is the top-left connector or if you combine the bottom-left connector's little thingie with the 6 pin at the bottom-left, it makes an 8 pin. So the top-right connector that says Type 3 goes into your power supply and depending on your graphics cards power needs, you connect either the 1 six pin at the bottom left or the 8 pin or use the 8pin, and combine the 6 pin with the little 3 pin guy to make 2 8 pins.
Hopefully that makes sense, lmk if you need any more help!
