Extension Cable Help

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Alright, might strike some of you as a dumb question..

Ive never used a modular PSU, and I have one on the way. I was also looking in to sleeving and cable extensions, (again, never worked with either.. always just used a plain old PSU)

My question is.. on a modular PSU can you plug "extension cables" directly into your PSU? I know Corsair makes colored kits for their PSU's.. nothing in green though. So anyways.. yeah.. on a modular PSU (I have a Seasonic 1050 Gold on the way) are extension cables interchangeable with the cables that are going to come in the box.. or merely to add on the ends? I suppose the extension would have a female end, but are there plugins maybe to make it male to male? Someone drop some knowledge on me!

As you all know, most of this custom "modding" or customization stuff has to come from online retailers.. I hate not being able to feel and look at things in a shop..


Thanks

EDIT: Before the first guy says it lol, I realize I could sleeve the cables I have, trying to avoid that, really just dont have the time or patience right now. Would rather buy pre-made stuff for this portion of the build (or have someone else sleeve for me, if its a cheap service)

I wouldn't have suggested that, its a lot of work and you really have to make the decision. Extensions are perfectly acceptable smile.gif

As for your question, no, they are not to be directly plugged into your power supply. They are extensions, nothing more. If you want pre-made cables specifically for your power supply, I've seen a few sites (don't have them handy right now, sorry) that sell pre-sleeved kits for specific power supplies (mainly Seasonic and Corsair AX). So that would be another option.
