    Hi All
    First time I have built a new system in 7 years and I bought a Silverstone 850W PSU (not my 1st choice, but all I could get)

    It is not very well labeled and I have searched for an instruction manual to no-avail. I am struggling with the PCIe connectors, as they have a weird extension cable on the end and I'm not sure which end is for the card and which end is for the actual PSU. See link below

    https://www.ple.com.au/Products/643...0W-80Plus-Gold-Fully-Modular-ATX-Power-Supply

    Also, the CPU 4 & 8 pin connectors are strange too...

    Specs:
    ASUS TUF Gaming Z690
    i7 12700
    EVGA 3080

    I am seriously thinking about either returning or getting cable extensions

    Any help is appreciated!

    The PCIE Cables will be 6pin with a separated 2 pin (6+2 setup) on the end where they go to the GPU.

    The 4/8pin CPU will be 4+4 on the motherboard side.

    They should be keyed so that you can't actually get it wrong.
