Graphics card power connection question


Well-known Member
Maybe a silly question :)
I am looking to get a GTX 1660 super that has a 8 pin power connector, the lead I have has the 6 pin with the separate 2 pin part, I know they can be joined together to make it into 8 pin but I wondered if the lead can/could be used the other way around so the 6+2 pin part was into the PSU and the solid 8 pin end into the graphics card?
Only wondered cause the 6+2 end has two sets of power connectors on it and I only need the one and the un-used one will just be dangling loose making the inside look untidy :D

The connections for the PSU end are not standardised.

So it may be something your specific PSU offers, but it's not an option generally as far as I'm aware.
