Question What happens if I use a 6 pin connector on a GPU that needs 8 pins?

My graphics card
Gigabyte Radeon RX 580 Aorus

I also have an 800 watt power supply.
I’ve seen multiple threads about this but since everyone has different power supplies, I have to ask myself since the 6 pin to 8 pin adapter is coming on Wednesday.

just plugged those two 6-pin power connectors into the card, meaning that it now has an 8-pin power slot that only has a 6-pin power connector plugged into it. Maybe it could cause trouble under FurMark or something, so far there's been no issues though.
