Dual 8 pin 1080 ti

Hey, i was wondering if i could hook up two separate 8pin pcie cables to my 1080 ti from my power supply instead of using the one dual 8pin because the right 8 pin connector on the dual 8pin does a loop instead of going straight back down into where i route it so it sticks out and looks very unclean to me. So would i be ok hooking up 2 single 8pin connectors to my 1080 ti?

    Yeah its fine, as long as you have both connectors on the GPU pluged in and powered.

    Yes you can. Judging by your description(forced to assume) it sounds like you have a modular PSU similar to my Seasonic unit that has those odd loops. I am fairly certain Seasonic said not to use those if your card needs 250W or more. I am looking to confirm that.

    I have an EVGA 1080 Ti FTW3 Hybrid so I did the same, I think.
