My PSU is a Corsair HX750i. My question is can I use a single PCIe cable with the two 6+2 connectors to fill the two 8 pin slots on the card or should I run 2 separate PCIe cables and leave the piggy backed 6+2 connector on each cable disconnected? The PSU is single 12V rail….I believe. Thanks

Thanks. From reading other forums and your reply I think I’ll leave it with the 2 separate connectors. While I have a Be Quiet 900 Pro with clear window my PC is in a corner so you you can’t see inside anyway. plenty of room in the case for an extra wire. Actually the case is too big and heavy for me. I’ve had it since I built my i7 4770K then i7 7700K with GTX 1080 and now my i7 12700K with RTX 3070ti. I wanted a 3080 but impossbile to get unless spending 1800 dollars. I won the 3070ti in Newegg shuffle for 850 so couldn’t pass it up. Thanks for your help.
