Can cause a burnout if the system is heavily overclocked. Happened twice to me. Using separate cables fixed the issue. Not cheap PSU's either! Corsair and SeaSonic. Had both RMA tested. Reports concluded the same outcome..., PCI-E cables to blame, causing the system to draw power from other areas to compensate. In my case, it draw from the EPS, causing a burnout. Each report recommended using separate PCI-E cables. Have done for years ever since, never had a burn out since!
