Does anybody know where/if I can get a 3x8 pin connector for my 3080?

Running 3 separate 8 pins looks kind of bad.

I have a corsair rm750 if that makes any difference?

There are three connectors for a reason, each one can only take so much current.  So not really sure what you are suggesting here.

Router: i5-7200U appliance running pfSense WiFi: Honor Router 3 (~850Mbit peak throughput)
ISPs: Zen Unlimited Fibre 2 (66Mbit) + Plusnet Unlimited Fibre Extra. (56Mbit) + Voxi LTE (~120Mbit)

Im guessing you mean you want to get rid of the 3x8pin molex to ATV12 pin adapter?
Maybe put a picture to make obvious. 😉

 

But by the sound of it, this is what you're looking for: https://www.corsair.com/us/en/Categories/Products/Accessories-|-Parts/PC-Components/Power-Supplies/12-pin-GPU-Power-Cable/p/CP-8920274

When i ask for more specs, don't expect me to know the answer!

I am suggesting a single cable that connects 3 of my 6+2 connections on my psu to the 3 8pin connection on my gpu. So I still get sufficient power but with a cleaner look.

I just think this looks bad, so I am looking for a brigded cable or what ever you call it to make it look clean

Ah sorry i misunderstood.
For something like that i think you're best of with a cablemod set. (or equivelant).

It is not suggested to daisy-chain a splitter from 1 8x to 3 8x pin connector. as this would put too much load on the cable.

causing a potential fire hazard.

 

using a cheap cable is also highly discouraged

Check gamers-nexus his video about using "cheap cables or adapters"

Again, that is not what I am looking for. I am looking for a cable that looks like one, for a cleaner look, but is actually 3 8 pin cables.

AAH OK. in that case look at what Cablemods has to offer.

i do know they sell kits that have about everything you need.

maybe that is something you need.

Also just to add, you will not be able to have less cables.
The current passing trough the cable right now (GPU at max) is already close to the cable limits.

But you can have them look nice by buying a cable mod set for the GPU, maybe some cable combs too.

 

Somewhat similar to this:
