[SOLVED] New 1000w PSU doesn’t have three available CPU/PCI-E slots

I recently built a PC that I was planning on putting an RTX4080 in. With the price of the 4080 and the new AMD cards launching soon, I‘ve decided to hold off on buying a GPU. If I had used a 4080 I would have just used the 12VHPWR connector, but if I go AMD I’ve seen where several of the cards need three 8 pin connectors. I only have two available. The PSU came with two 8 pin cables that have an additional daisy chain 8 pin. Is it OK to use one 8 pin daisy chained to two slot on the GPU? Is there any other way to connect a GPU that needs three 8 pins?

These are the specs if it helps answer:
PSU: Thermaltake GF3 1000W
M/B: Gigabyte Aorus Elite AX
CPU: 13700K

that should be fine.

i was asking same question recently, picking between 2 new PSU, one with individual cables and one with 2 per cable. It doesn't make any difference either way.
