Having trouble finding a compatible PCIe power connector for the dual GPU build

My new PC build freezes frequently when under heavy load, mainly when rendering models in Redshift which uses both GPUs (full version below). When I disable my second GPU, the lockups no longer occur. Especially considering the power consumption of the 3090 (and this PC has two), it leads me to believe that the problem is related to power consumption, but I could be wrong. The motherboard instruction manual recommends for dual GPU builds to connect an additional PCIe power connector cable from the power supply to the motherboard, but I’m having trouble finding the correct cable. Any help is greatly appreciated.
