I ordered a rx 570 nitro+, and it my power supply only has a 6 pin pcie connector, so i plan on using an adaptor for SATA x2 to 8 pin pcie. I also already plan on getting a better PSU, But is it safe to just use the card without an overclock, or should i wait?

my current psu: ACE A-750BR (750W)

It's not even ok to run at normal speeds with a SATA to PCIe adapter. As has been pointed out, overclocking is just asking for trouble with this kind of setup.

That's even before considering the poor quality of the PSU overall.

Do not use sata-to-PCIe or molex-to-PCIe adapters. Get a good quality power supply, that has the proper connectors.

See the first link in my sig for a very good reference. DO NOT gamble with this.
