I have a Corsair RM650i and a MSI GTX 1080 which has a 6 pin & 8 pin connector on it. I originally bought a 6 + 8 pin cable from cablemod but have since decided I don't really like the look of the 6 pin bit coming out the 8 pin part and want to get a separate cable for each so I can have all the individual cables in a row coming up from the bottom of the case to the 1080.
What is worrying me is that the PSU has 6 + 2 PCIe sockets and while that will work fine for the 8 pin PCIe connector, I'm not sure if it will work with the 6 pin one. Does anyone know if the 6 pin will work? I don't think it would fit in the socket if it has a 6 pin connector on the PSU end as the clip in the middle would get in the way as it is set up with the gap in the middle for a 8 pin connector.
There are 6 pin slots on the PSU but they say it is for Peripheral & SATA so I'm not sure if I can just plug it in there or not without causing issues.
As you have probably garnered, I'm not that clued up on PSUs so any help appreciated.
