I'm mid build right now using an EVGA Supernova 1000W Gold PSU and SLI Zotac GTX780 Amp edition and when running the power for the GPU's I noticed that the PSU included a cable that they list as a 6+2+6 cable. Can I run a single one of those instead of a pair of 6+2 cables? The psu is a single 12V rail.

Cable looks like the bottom red one in this pic.

That should work, however I would try it both ways, with the 6+2+6 and with individual cables to each input. Hope this helps!

Nice choice on that tier 1 unit.
