Hi!
Just like in topic: How can I make 6 pin to 8 pin adapter? I mean which cables should I crimp together? From 1 ground pin in 6 pin connector goes 2 ground pins to 8 pin?

In short, take two of the ground wires and add them to the right two pins (looking at the connector from the front.

A tip would be to make split wires somewhere where it is hidden off of two seperate ground wires, however taking them off of one would be fine as well.

You can also try to double crimp them but if you are sleeving them this will make it very difficult. So the split wire is the best option. I have made a video guide on how to do these cleanly on youtube or on the video guide sticky.

You can use any 8pin pcie connector or a 6+2 connector, however if you get a 6+2 make sure you get the ones that interlock like the following.
