Is not every psu for a 1080ti? Question about PCIe power cables

 Share

In the photo below you can see the PCIe cables coming out of the power supply.

 

However, both 6+2 are all connected to the same base cables coming from the supply. 

 

The base cables are split as you can see, but this second 6+2 plug just looks like an extension, no? 

 

The question is can I use both of these 6+2 plugs to power the two 8-pin plugs on my 1080ti?

 

Or is the second 6+2 here an extention and my psu is not made to power a 1080ti?

 

I have a 520 watt seasonic s12ii bronze.

 

Please advise?

Yes, you can use those.

 

The point of them being 6+2 pin connectors is so they can function as 6 pin or 8 pin connectors.

Yes, you can use both 6+2 connectors on the 1080ti.  That said, I would probably buy a stronger PSU...not a ton of cushion there.

I'm just saying, it's difficult to word it.. but, there are coming off 1.5 COMBINED wires - one an extension of the other - from the PSU, instead of being two completely separate wires, that is okay?

Yes.  This is not ideal, but will work okay.  The "1.5 combined wires" will deliver the needed power as long as the PSU is capable of supplying it.
