Default 2 GPU cables to power RTX2080Ti or 1?

Hi, I currently have an HX1000 power supply and had a question about power cables and the Nvidia RTX2080Ti.

Is it wiser to use a single power cable (which has two 6+2 PCI-E plugs at the end) or two separate cables?

Threads on various enthusiast sites seem to disagree, so I figured I'd go straight to the source. What is the "official" recommendation?

You should be able to power it with a single dual connector cable without issue. The card uses 260W, so you should be plenty fine there.

Thanks for the quick answer. Would you say that there is any benefit or detriment to using two cables? How much would mild overclocking affect this?

I wouldn't say there's a detriment, it's just a little more clutter. The double ended cable should be able to provide more than enough power.

safer to use dual cables to minimize thermal loading
