    If you have never encountered problems with power delivery before then it's understandable. It's neater to have just one cable and there are 2 connectors on it so it makes sense that it should work.

    All good, if someone learns from it then its a good thing. It wasn't daisy chained as such - each PCI-E connector with my PSU has 2x 8 pin PCI-E connectors hanging off the end of it. To any noob like myself you'd think that means you can use both, but I suppose when you have the latest hardware you start to run into certain bottlenecks.

    There are plenty of modern PSUs with single 12v rails. I think pretty much the whole corsair line uses a single 12v rail these days (including my sf750).

    The other points you make all stand, it is not just recommended but a requirement to use 2 separate cables on these cards. I've seen multiple issues resolved by fixing that, but I can understand the "mistake" as cards of past including 1080ti and most of the 20 series had no issues with that setup.

    they got stock of the strix's and must have some spares, they say it could be another 2-3 weeks for the TUF OC due to the huge demand on them... so I'm going to take it, waiting for my revised invoice now

    As if they are going to tell you until they sort out their card, that way you vultures can't take the stock hahaha.

    yes SaveOnIT... sorry... I have been busy with work amongst being excited... they don't have any stock available on their site, they are offering to people waiting on other cards first and then maybe some will go up, that said their list price is higher than many others
