    Plug the 6+2-pin into one 8-pin connector. And then plug the 6-pin into the other 8-pin connector.

    If that doesn't work the other two unplugged pins are simply grounds AFAIK, and you can just short them.

    I don't know if this advice is correct at all, but I've noticed the the 8-pin adaptors are usually closest along the PCB to the monitor outputs. So I'd plug the 6+2 in there.

    Technically if they jump 2-pins off of the 6-pin, you gain no advantages over a 6-pin connector. Sales of a 6+2-pin is a gimmick(unless there is 8 wires from PSU), that gets you to buy a 6-pin as if it were a 8-pin. If there is not 8 wires from the power supply, power ratings can not be calculated as 8-pin.
