I am a mining noob and building my first mining rig. Can I power both a GPU (RTX 3060ti) & corresponding riser with the same 8-pin (6+2) PCIe cable? 

Hello drivingfool,

I'm sorry we cannot speak on any "mining" topics but to answer the rest of your questions - the riser cable does not require a power connection as it just connects to the motherboard's PCIe slot. Only your GPU requires the 8-pin PCIe power connections.
