Greetings,
In the pictures below you can see the GPU and the pins i need, i have two of 6+2 PCIE connectors and the six pin isn't the problem, the 8 pin is. As you can see in the image where I am holding the 6+2, the 6 is fine but the 2 pins shapes don't match up with the GPU. It has two of those triangle pins (I don't know the name sorry) instead of a square one at the top, is this a problem because the two triangle pins still fit fine inside but I don't want to cause any damage to the GPU. Are there any differences between the PCI and PCI Express pins for powering the GPU?
Thank you for your answers!

Hi.

The 2 pins connector should work without problems, just find the correct way to connec it. I has been running the same connections with my 1080 HoF with an AX1200i for around 2 years with not problems.
