Preferred Ports/Plugs for PCIe GPU Cables

I am guessing it doesn't matter, but I just bought a Corsair AX1600i and I wonder if there are any preferred ports I should use for my GPU? I want to connect it to my 3090 Kingpin, which requires 3 pcie cables. If it's not clear, I'm talking about the 10 pcie exits/plugs on the AX1600i. Are they all the same? I'm going to use 6 out of the ten. Should I space them out so that there is some room between them? I was planning to just connect them closest to direction where the cable is supposed to go, but now I'm thinking maybe there is an optimal way to do this? Another strategy is to connect them all to the bottom row so that it's easier to add more?

Does it matter?

This is what I would do. Each PSU side source is independent on the 1600 so it should not matter which sockets you use. You can adopt either cable management strategy, but power handling should not be an issue. Enjoy.
