I’ve bought a new gpu. It’s an rtx 3070 ti. I’ve also bought a 1000W Corsair PSU. I’ve been trying to hook the gpu up but I’m afraid of connecting the wrong cables. I’ve compared the cables of my old build to my new one but the old 1060 graphics card is pretty different. With the new PSU came new cables and it gave me 3 CPU 8 pin to 8 pin cables. They look like they would fit perfectly but I looked it up online and I’ve been told it would short my system. So instead I’ve grabbed these three sets of daisy chained 6+2 cables for pcie. I also saw on the forum that people can’t fuckin decide whether using daisy chained 6+2 is good for your system or not. So now I’m fuckin stumped and I’d really appreciate if someone would explain this to me like I’m 10 years old. The current set up I have is to have each of the three Pcie cords hooked up individually without using its daisy chain. Is this correct or am I doing this totally wrong?
If your new PSU came with only 2 GPU cable, just use 2, use daisy chain for the 3rd.
