Zotac Geforce Gtx 1070 Amp Extreme power draw

I would just like to ask if i can run this graphics card which requires two 8 pin plugs with a single 6+2 pin and a single 6pin connector. My power supply had another 6+2 pin cable but i lost that and i had a 6pin just laying around. I was just wondering if i can run it 6+8pin since the power demand for a gtx 1070 is not that high and even when overclocking I think it shouldnt succed this wattage? Or am i wrong?
I am concerned of the graphics card not wanting to run properly...
Power supply: Cooler master v650

Thanks in advance!

  1. With that card you will need 2 - 6+2 PCIE connections , no adapters.

    Well i think you missed my point.I wont use adapters,i was just curious if i could run it on an 8pin and a 6pin without the need to buy a cable that has another 6+2 pin since i dont have that cable,idk where it is. I may just have lost it...
    The power supply does support dual 6+2 pin connections though...

    You will want to use both 8 pins , I understood your question.

    Contact CoolerMaster for your models 6+2 pin.
  4. Don't use other power supplies 6 pin cables you could damage the PSU and or Card.
