Extra power cable needed?

Hello,

I am about to order some custom CableMod cables for my ASUS B550-F motherboard and I am just wondering if an 8 pin EPS cable is enough or if I should also get an extra 6 pin, which this specific motherboard has? I'm aware that an 8 pin is enough, but seeing as ordering custom cables, I'm sort of wandering about wether to buy it or not, if it's REALLY necessary?

What do you guys say about this?...

Thanks,
Dawelio

No it isnt needed to get another cable, the single 8 pin is more then enough for any Ryzen cpu.
