Silly question I'm sure, but how do you connect a 6+2 pin PCIe connector to the 12pin one on the PSU?

The Be Quiet PSUs seem to favour the 12 pin connector for PCIe:

(I have the Pure Power 10 400W and want to connect a new GPU to it)

The 6pin cable would fit otherwise, but the plastic "fixing clip" isn't aligned with the hole on the PSU. Can I just rip the clip off or do I really need a 12 pin PCIe cable?

I believe the PSU was even supplied with 6+2 cables.

Oh, thanks for the quick response!

I don't have the original cables as I (actually my brother) got the PC as a gift without the GPU.

Now that we are trying to put in the GPU, things got tricky. Do we really need to order spares from Be Quiet?!

Its possible people sell them elsewhere, but yes, you need the specific cables designed for that specific PSU.
