Especially if you plan to overclock (what I'd not recomend due to lifetime restrictions. NVidia said GPU will only last for a year @ full power! Was in an Interview with PCGH)...
Yes, Seasonic's guidance and everyone else seems to agree that two cables are recommended for powering a 1080 Ti. My only question is (and it might be a stupid question) does it matter if you use two cables that each have single-ended PCI-E connectors on the GPU side or if you use two cables that each have double-ended PCI-E connectors on the GPU side? The PCI-E cables with double-ended PCI-E connectors on the GPU side have an obvious "main" connector and a secondary connector. I'd only be using the "main" connectors.
