had a look on amazon the 3070 by palit uses 2x8pin connectors looks like most of the 3070 that are not founders editions are 2x8 pin connectors founders editions are 12pin
as long as your psu is around 650 to 750 w and has 2 x 8 pin cables you should be ok only founders edition is different

The founder's edition requires the 12 pin cable, but the founders edition cards all come with an adapter that takes two 8 pin power cables as input. Thus, all 3070s require 2 x 8 pin cables one way or another.
