    My old RIVE board does have a 6 Pin Connector for additional to Power the PCIE Slots. I was running SLI at the time so I had it connected.

    Okay, just to be clear. I'm building the Asus ROG Rampage VI Extreme Encore Motherboard. The Manual said to use either both 8 pins or use one 8 pin with the 6 pin. It had a clear warning to use the 6 pin with the 8 pin if your running multiple Graphic cards or to use both 8 pin. It didn't mention anything about connecting power to both 8 pin and the 6 pin sockets (Basically connecting power to them all). So, my question to the community at large here, is won't connecting power to all of them damage the Motherboard? Or does it just provides the maximum amount of power to the motherboard it is designed to handle or use?

    Perhaps off topic, I was trying find out how to buy the motherboards thermal sensor that the manual said I needed to purchase separately. Any clue?

    Yes RIVE had a 6 pin for the GPUs

    The manual is quite clear...i don't know how so many fail to read it or fail to understand it.

    EZ molex connection is for multi GPU

    Order of importance:

    Populate 8pin....

    Populate both 8pins

    Populate both 8 pins and 6pin

    Maybe populate 8pin and 6pin if you are missing cables.

    However...a PSU that could handle the board and all you throw at it should have all the cables to fully populate all connectors. if your PSU doesn't have the cables then you should probably question your hardware choices...
