    I now also have the fan.
    I have looked at the cables. Apparently, assignment is already correct. You can theoretically connect the fan without regard to the rest of the connections.
    Probably PWM and SENS signal is also the same as in the wiring diagram of the P870TM!

    Thank you, I already knew that! I meant only the cables from the fan itself. But it does not really matter, I also operate the fan only with 5V plus and ground! Works fine:).....

    Ah great :) I just made it a habit of mentioning it every time it comes up, since a 400$ replacement mobo is not so nice.

    Yes, a single 330W brick should be fine. I still use a single 330w at 5.1Ghz and powermodded 1080 without issues.

    I'd avoid any power viruses though.

    So 9900k +rtx 2080 should also be fine?

    BTW, how do you guys attach the second fan? Just capton tape/scotch?

    It should be alright, the 2080 has a lower TDP than the 1080 afaik. I did some testing with a wattmeter and the 330w brick scales well above and has held up fine so long. As for the 2nd fan, you can either make mounting for it, there are 3 screw holes or just duct tape it in place. I'd also put a small thermalpad between where it sits to reduce vibration noise.

    Perhaps, I've only tested my personal usage, which is benching and gaming, so that's something to keep in mind.
