Hi, I have an Asus Rog Strix 1080 ti and a Corsair RM750x v2. Will this cable kit work for my GPU?

I guess I have to use, either one of the first cable or both of the second, do you know which one is the best option?

  • 2 x Dual 6+2 Pin PCI-e Cable (750mm)
  • 2 x 6+2 Pin PCI-e Cable (600mm)

Do you know which one is the best option?

@wilda yes, that kit will have everything you need and then some. The 6+2 PCI-E would be the cleaner option.

@CableMod, thank you for the answer. Did not expect that! ? I'm in love the the look on your cables. I am new with this, but as far as I can tell are they both named 6+2 PCI-E. Are you referring to the dual 6+2 PCI-E? Also are the cables marked in any way? The original cables have text on the connector telling what they are used for. Do you have a similar solution?

@wilda the dual 6+2 PCI-E (pictured) is more so if you don't have enough available connectors at the PSU end, or if you're doing a SFF/ITX build and space is a limiting factor. They're great in these situations. However for cleaner aesthetics the 6+2 PCI-E (not the dual) is going to be a cleaner look as it is two individual cables, instead of one cable that is a splitter essentially. The PSU ends will be marked "PSU" but the primary end connections aren't marked because the EPS and PCI-E are keyed so that they only go into the appropriate headers. Additionally, the EPS will be a 4+4 and the PCI-E will be a 6+2 - so it is easy to navigate between the two. :)

@CableMod Thank you for the help. I appreciate your  "cable mod for dummies", that was exactly what I needed. :) I have plenty of space (ATX and open layout Define r6) so I will be going for 2 separate cables.

@wilda of course, always happy to help. :)
If you need anything else, ask away!
