1) I have a 3pin RTX 3090 graphics card and my HX1000 power supply only comes with a cable that has (6+2pin) + (6+2pin) pigtail on the end. Can I use 3 of these cables to power my gfx?

Or do I need a cable that only has (6+2) on the end? Which my psu doesn’t supply.


2) What are your experiences on the HX 1000? If you own one. Is it a high quality psu?

That power supply is fine. It looks like it has 6 PCI-E ports that you can connect to your motherboard (for CPU) and GPU. I'm guessing you just need one for your motherboard (4+4 for CPU). That leaves you with 5 for your GPUs. You say you have one cable that has two 6+2 connectors. You just need one more cable with 6+2 connector if your GPU requires three 6+2 connectors. If your PSU didn't come with more than one 6+2 PCI-E cable then you'd have to contact Corsair to order another cable.
