I have the ZOTAC Gaming GeForce RTX 3080 Trinity OC LHR 12GB for my graphics card and my PSU is the Corsair RMX series 850x watt. For my extension cables I have the asiahorse 18 awg psu extensions. For my case I have the Corsair 465x case. I wanted to make my pc have a white design and these extensions seemed to make it look nice but I was wondering if I should use two 6+2 cords for my graphics card or just the one that comes with the psu. I also want to make sure I can use these extensions for my core i9 with the motherboard.

ZOTAC Gaming GeForce RTX 3080 Trinity OC LHR 12GB
Corsair RMX series 850x watt
Corsair 465x Case

Intel i9 9900k

Don't use extensions. They cause stability issues with high power GPUs. Use replacement cables like this.

High power GPUs should always be connected with at least 2 seperate PCI-e cables.
Awesome answer, my first thought was 'This is the way' but then I saw the price of the cable. ($109) - That's almost the price of the PSU...(Still can't argue it's the best answer though...)

So would my asiahorse damage my gpu? Should I just use the cables that came with the psu?
Would it be ok to use the asiahorse until the replacement cables are delivered or should I use the psu cables until then?
