Uncertain about PSU connections

Hi, so I'm getting this:

https://www.asus.com/us/Graphics-Cards/ROG-STRIX-GTX1080TI-O11G-GAMING/

And it requires two 8 pin power connections. I've never used a GPU that needs two 8's, just ones' that use a 6+8, or less. Is it safe to have one cable from my PSU that splits into two 8 pin for a total of one cable, or should I use a separate cable for each 8 pin for a total of two power cables? Here is my build also, just in case:

Thanks!

  2. Speed man, pure speed. The two NVMe's are in RAID0, as well as the two SATA 3 SSD's. I hate waiting.

    that power supply is excellent and would have no issues powering that card


    either way would work, do whichever. I know two separate cables would be easier to hide for those that care about that. XD


    enjoy
