Help with 90 degree adapter for psu

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello all,

I wonder if using an extender that goes 90 degree for the psu would have possible issues with the stability of current which in turns causes other issues for motherboard etc...I am looking at this extender:

https://www.highflow.nl/watercooling/aansluitingen/stroomkabels/right-angle-iec-320-adapter-c14-male-to-c13-female-power-plug-nl.html

Its within spec 10A - 250v just as the original evga psu power cord.

In other words can i expect a form of resistance of current using this or is it completely safe?

Im doing this because my radiator (outside case behind) is interfering to some degree with the psu cord.
My input goes like: anything you add will have resistance which could lead to instability...

Im using a EVGA P2 850watt psu.

Thanks for the feedback.

If your that nervous, why not just get a 90 degree cable? Why bother with an adapter at all?

Thx for the reply,

Because i already have it the watercooling is still not fully installed. Well what do you think of this cable:

http://www.allekabels.nl/apparaatsnoer/1245/1164387/apparaatsnoer-c13-haaks.html

10A - 230v

Is this well within spec for gaming pc? Atleast with this i dont need a "middle man"....

Anyone?

I really don't want to mess with the psu current on the power cord as specified 10A - 250v (EVGA G2 850watt).
But the 90 degree power cord is rated at 10A - 230v spec says it is used for pc computer systems and other electronic devices that need this type of power cord.

Help is much appreciated, thx in advance

H05VV-F 3x0.75mm² is the standard connection cable for up to 10A. That means it handles up to 2300W within specs. Over 10A you'd use 1mm².
At full load your PSU has ~89% efficiency, so it pulls max. ~955W form your outlet in that scenario.
Just be aware that the cable is angled to the left and not down, like the adapter you posted. If that's not a problem pick it up, no worries.

10A * 250V = 2500W. Your PSU is 850W. I think you are fine.
