With my supernova 850W G2 I got 2 x 8(6+2) pin PCIE and 2 x 8(6+2) + 6 pin PCIE cables.
I’m wondering if the combo 8 + 6 pin connectors are meant to be used either-or or both? I did put both in a Sapphire card that takes 8 + 6 pin where the 6 pin is described as optional and the card will work with just the 8 pin so I’m not sure if this has any benefit.
I guess the question boils down to if the PSU can provide enough amperage through one cable to accommodate for whatever the standard specifies for 8 and 6 pin connectors but I’m not managing to find this info in the documentation from EVGA. It does state that the total 12 V wattage can be ~850 W.
