Im thinking about buying the new Strix 3080 OC, but when im looking around at the specs and such i realize it requires a 3x8 pin power connector while most others use the new 12 pin or 2x8. Does this mean i need to use 3 separate PCIe cables? I have a RM750x that comes with two 8 to 8 to 6x2 cables and one 8 to 8, do i need to use all 3 of them? Someone told me you only need 2 and you use both the 8 and 6x2

I mean i have 3 8 pin cables, im just wondering if i need to use them all or only 2, someone told me you only need to plug in 2 and use the 8 and 6x2 connectors from one cable to fill the 2nd and 3rd slots

Im pretty sure they just mean 3 cables with 8 pins on each, and i have enough outlets to supply power to all 3. Asus recommended 750W minimum for the strix AIB so i dont need to replace anything as far as i know just wondering how many cables out of the 3 i have that i need to use.
