Crap, mixed up my power cords!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I mixed up the power cords of my monitor and PSU.

My psu is a Seasonic M12II 620 W , ATX12V V2.3 / EPS 12V V2.91 , +3.3V@24A, +5V@24A, +12V1@24A, +12V2@24A, -12V@0.8A, +5VSB@2.5A

The two cords have almost the same spec: 10A, 125V. Except one has 105c temperature rating and the other one 75c.

I used the 105c one for my PSU, I hope this is the right one.

If it's a direct wire from the wall to the device then hook it up to either, they both carry the same voltage. It's up to the monitor's built in power converter and the PC's PSU to convert the 120v line to a usable voltage

If any power wire gets even close to 75c, let alone 105c, you have much larger problems thumb.gif
