Power switch cable to other power switch

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi.

I concluded that my CM 690 II power switch is broken, it will shut down / power on my pc at random moments when not touching it myself (i spilled some drink on it)

Anyaway, I have another switch that works fine but the cable isen't as long as the one that came with the case.
I was wondering if i can just cut the cable and solder the longer cable on the switch that works.

is this possible?

Yes, and you don't even need to worry about polarity. Simply wire them as a pair like they are already. The switch merely acts to connect the two wires to each other momentarily.
