Where to buy modular sata power cables?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have a Corsair HX520 and the cables that came with it are ultra stiff, can't really do anything with them in my HAF 922. I'm not looking to buy a new case or psu, just need to replace these cables.

If the price is right I'll go sleeved, but I'm not really looking to spend more than $10 each cable.

if someone actually knows where to buy them I would appreciate your input.

EDIT: Adding a screenshot of the connector port on the PSU...

Provided the modular connector from the PSU is somewhat standard (I've never seen one with modular SATA, so I honestly don't know), you could always buy the connectors/pins separately and make your own:

SATA Connectors and pins

My guess for the modular end of the cables would be one of these

With that end on the PSU, if you truly wanted to do this you could cut one of the ends off a few inches from the connector and splice/solder the new wire onto the older wire.

Some 18 AWG stranded wire

Even with shipping they'd be cheap, you could get them the exact length/configuration you need, and you'd save enough to get sleeving for them as well.

There are some other options as well:

You could get pre-made extensions as well.

There's also these that are 4-pin Molex to SATA, probably not what you want, though.

Thanks! I think these were a one-off never to be done again proprietary connector from Corsair, too bad for me.

Looks like I'll have to cut them like you suggest then solder on some new wire to sleeve.

All you have to do is take off the sata connectors and pop them on some new wires, then with the PSU connector depin and recrimp.

I pretty much do this to all my power supplies so I have better cable management.

I had time last night to take a look at exactly what I need to start working on this and it turns out the cables that come with the psu are molded onto the wire. I'm going to have to cut through the plastic on the data connectors and start from scratch.

The connector that plugs into the psu has pins so I can reuse that one, which is the one I need most.

Thanks again for the replies, going to vuy the materials from the frozen links given earlier.
