PCI-E for each plug on GPUs?

Probably a silly question but,Just got my 1080 Ti FTW3s earlier this week and my RMA'd Gaming-G1 should be coming back today. Now, usually I've always ran one cable per plug to my GPUs, so 2 seperate PCI-E cables each card, 4 total in SLi setup. Now due to my new build and the thickness of each cable on my new Corsairs RM1000i I may need to actually have to use only 2 cables (as oppose to four total in SLi). Would this limit power to my videocards? or is it alright and I am just worried over nothing?

you will be fine, one pcie cable with a 6+2 pin and a 6 pin to each card is the norm, just no power adapters or adapter cables should be used.
