    G20CB with 2080 Super

    I have been using my G20CB-NL017T since early 2016 but recently I have seen the need for a upgrade.
    I recently bought a pre used I7 6700k which is waiting to be installed along with a new GPU.

    My question is how well a 2080 Super would work with my G20 and how I would install it since it seems to require 2 8 pins and the G20 only has a 8 pin and a 6pin, would a 6 pin to 8 pin splitter work?.
    I also wonder if any jumpers need to be moved to accommodate the higher TDP.

    Any answers are appreciated.

    2080 super should require 250w. so you can try it, but if anything goes wrong.... its up to you

    Well then a normal 2080 with a TDP of 215w should be fine.

    But would a 6 pin to 8 pin along with the stock 8 pin work?

    that adapter should be fine. but in the end it's about how powerful your PSU is. i dont know how good PSU that is. so again its up to you to try it. i think there are 3 options. It will work, it will not work, or something can go wrong if PSU cant handle that load. so next time build normal PC or you can do mini-itx build if you want something small and you will be much satisfied in future with upgrades.
