Just installed a new PSU...Seasonic Focus 650w Platinum. Bought it to support a new-to-me used 1080ti.
Problem is the pci-e cables running to the gpu. They are wrapped near the end that plugs into the gpu and are very stiff and bending them so that I can put the side of my case on looks like it will be impossible.
So...can I cut off the wrap?
Or, any reason I can't use the pci-e cables that came with the gpu? They are much more flexible.
Or, best place to buy replacement and/or custom cables?
Also, the pci-e power cable has 2 8-pin plugs on it...does it really run enough power to support both 8-pin connectors on the one cable? I used 2 separate cables so each one has a dangling extra connector. Again, using the cables that came with the psu.
I can try to post pictures if that would help in case I'm not explaining it well.
