Daisy chained pcie connector for a 3070

Can I use a single daisy chain pcie cable for a RTX 3070, it needs two 8 pin connectors, like in this picture ho3SIZGpunp1ga4OBc0uU2kWcOk5uy64JMhXyFDj 

or do I have to use two different pcie cables, like is a single one not able to put through as much watts as the 3070 needs, sorry I don't really know how that works, that's basically why I'm asking, just want to make sure.

A good power supply can handle daisy chains cables, though when in doubt use two cables

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

I have a Seasonic Core 650w 80+ gold certified. I'm guessing then it's gonna be good enough

I don't think it will. IIRC the Core series has problems with Ampere's transient power spikes (superquick spikes to ~100W above rated TDP) and can shut down randomly when under load.

Is that like your personal experience or is this something very well known to happen?

I don't own an Ampere card, but this has been documented before.
