Low(er) Profile 10 Pin HD Audio Plug ? Extension cable with a 90 Degree Turn ?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have an issue. I run SLI in my system, and it just so happens my HD Audio plug is directly behind one of my GPUs. I've been looking for a solution to no avail! Any help would be appreciated. I've included a picture below.

You can file those 10-pin dupont connectors down to make them smaller, but unfortunately the pins are almost as long as the connector.
Dupont also make a half height connector with smaller pins, but PC modding shops only sell the 20-pin one (for usb3) and not the 10pin one.
You'd have to contact dupont directly (with a question like "what is the model number of the 10-pin connector similar to the 20-pin connector used for usb3").

I'll consider that. I guess I will just try to grind it down a bit with a sander or file maybe. I'm looking around and I see that the front panel connectors are made by molex, uses their KK system. Trying to find a KK 90 degree, which it looks like Fry's might sell. If I find a solution I will post in this thread for anyone in the future who may need a similar fix.

Are you sure? Molex KK is 4mm pitch, no? I thought all non MiniFitJr connectors on the motherboard are Dupont 2.54mm (1/10th inch) pitch. Can you post a pic of your front panel connectors?

Hmm, I had found that information through Googling. I hadn't actually checked the connectors. Thanks for that information. I found this, which I think may work for this.

Not sure, but if it does work that's an interesting alternative to Dupont since the cable is at right angles.

I'll find an old IDC connector somewhere in my parts and test it out first. If it fits, I'll probably just make one myself tongue.gif
