Hi, reading conflicting reports that you need two seperate PCIE cables to power two 8 pins on an RTX 3080, I have a decent power supply in an Rm750x (2018).

Anything to worry about?

I looked in the manual and it had no watts listed for a single cable.

My Seasonic said 250 watts per cable.

It could very depending on wire length and gauge.

I would use 2 separate cables to be on the safe side.
