Hi,
I might be getting a 3080 soon but it will require 3 8 pins and my psu only has 2 cables/connectors for pci. I tried to look at the product page but the way they have it labeled confuses me so I can't tell how many pcie/vga connectors there are and how many cpu ones there are. Could anyone help me with how its labeled?
thanks

Cables and connectors are two different things.

The RM850x has 3 PCIe cables. Each cable has 2 connectors on it, for a total of 6 connectors. This means you have 3 x 8 pin (6+2) PCIe cables.
oh when I said that I meant my psu has 2 cables and only 2 connectors for said 2 cables. So the rm850x can use all 3 8 pin cables at the same time? As well as having 2 cables for cpu power as well? Im too used to evga labeling where every connector is labeled so I dont have to guess what the label is over.

Correct. The CPU and PCIe cables are completely separate.
looking at the picture again, I see 5 8 pin connectors. There are 4 on the bottom row and 1 on the top left. The top left one is different from the bottom 4 which are all identical from what I can see so im assuming its for the cpu. However, if three of those are for pcie, what is the last 8 pin for? Id assume cpu but its different from the one above it. Ill add an imgur link below: View: https://imgur.com/Uj2pQon

The top one is upside down from the bottom ones, look at the latch.

Correct. They will be keyed so you can't input them incorrectly anyway, it's the other end of the cable that is the important bit.
thank you and everyone else so much. I swear im a certified IT admin lmao. Ive never seen a corsair psu before and it confused the hell out of me.
