I have an RTX 2800 Super


The PCI-E cables that come with the 1600i have two different numbers on the type end. One says “34-0 00508”. And the other type says “34-0 00477”

Is there a specific type I need to use on my RTX?

Those are Corsair part numbers for each cable.

You're asking the question is a weird way.

Of course PCIe cables are PCIe cables. Just some of the cables have two connectors and some have one; thus the different part numbers.

They are just typical 8 pin (6+2) typical PCI-E power cables. I just wanted to know why they have different numbers on them.

Also the 1600i has a zero RPM power mode and it doesn’t fire up until as much as 65% load. I am an obsessed quiet build freak

Respectable
Either of the PCIe cables should work fine for the GPU.
You don't need an AX1600i to get silence. You can go buy an evga G2 or G3 and flip the Eco switch, basically making the fan not spin up at all. There are also decent 650-750W passive units which don't have a fan and are much cheaper than the AX1600i. But if you can't return it, then I guess keep it.
