Silverstone Strider Gold ST1000-G PCIe cables

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So purchased a upgrade recently for my gaming rig

old PSU: Silverstone Zeus 750w Silver SLI certified

new PSU: Silverstone Strider 1000w Gold series

All and all does what i wanted to run my system at full load

But......wow the cables are hard to bend, flex, move etc.

I purchased these knowing about the inline capacitors and the extra space they would take

What I did not realize is that the PSU comes with 4 PCIe cables

2 x PCIe 6+2 standard length cables w/ capacitor



2 x PCIe 6+2 standard length cables w/ capacitor + 6pin pigtailed



long story short I could use the pigtailed line with low powered cards but did not want to use on cards that draw 250w at full load individually

so I called silverstone for a recommendation and they confirmed that although using the pigtailed lines would reduce clutter/save space I should not use them to run the two cards
or another way of saying it is each line needs to go to a dedicated plug on the card, running 2 PCIe cables with pigtails to two cards with dual 6 pin inputs drawing a total of 500w combined at full load is not recommended using these cables

Solution to problem was Silverstone sold me 2 std size PCIe cables without the pigtail and with capacitors for 6 dollars each and shipped them USPS, tried to get them free but no go...well at least they answered the phone better than some companies
