    Question What happens if I use a 6 pin connector on a GPU that needs 8 pins?

    My graphics card Gigabyte Radeon RX 580 Aorus I also have an 800 watt power supply. I’ve seen multiple threads about this but since everyone has different power supplies, I have to ask myself since the 6 pin to 8 pin adapter is coming on Wednesday.
