CPU 4 pin isnt long enough - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Thread Starter 
Well guys...I couldn't wait. I cut the cord and extended it with some wires.....and....IT WORKED yay. Mobo and PSU are next on the upgrade list anyways so I'm not too worried bout the warranty. If it was a newer nicer psu, than I will for sure buy an extender.

Make sure the wire you used is of around 18 gauge or higher because under high current (benching/oc'ing) you may burn your extended wire and cause extra damage to the system.

I actually cut the wire from an older psu I was about to toss out, so it is the exact same wire
