Okay I'm completely new to building a system so this is probably a easy one to answer. I just got in my seasonic x650 gold psu and I will be sleeving it sometime this week. I noticed on the pci-e connectors that it has one 8 pin for the psu side and then 2 6+2 pins on the other. I will be using a sapphire radeon hd7870 ghz edition card that requires 2 6 pins. Can I use just one of the cables with both 6 pins plugged in or use both cables with one 6 pin on each? Just not sure about how much power it gets through a single cable with 2 6+2 pins.Also is there any harm in removing the extra 2 pin to make it cleaner?
