So recently i built my first pc and when i was building i was about to connect power supply with gpu and i saw i needed one 6pin for gpu. I had one cable that has one 6pin and on another there is two. Because i only need one i wanted to put two sided one on psu so it looks better but the one with just one 6 pin has 5 pins and one pin that doesnt have a pin.
So i didnt wanted to risk i put the one with hole in psu and two sided in gpu so one 6pin is hovering. My question is can i put the one with hole in gpu and the one of the two other in psu?

Most likely you can't. The side of the cable with a single connector meant to connect to the PSU and is not pinned the same as the side meant for the GPU. Reversing this could damage the PSU and GPU.
