OCZ ModXStream 700W cable problem

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi Experts,

I am beginner to Overclocking in general.
What I did is overclocking my E8400 from 2.6 Ghz to 4.0 Ghz 4 days ago.
I am using this extensively till now. But I suspected the high temperatures when I test in Orthos. It is reaching to 75 and higher so I stopped the test and I decided to buy a CPU Cooler. (Silver Arrow). But I encountered a complication with my PSU while I was mounting cooler. Power cable coming from the PSU is too short that I can not maneuver around the cooler.

Is there a way to extend this cable with an extension?

If not I have to buy a new PSU but I can not afford that much. I already spent all my money to cooler.

If extension is not possible I have to revert back to original clock speeds I do not know.

This PSU is not a good PSU. At least they had to produce it with lengthy cables. I am stuck what to do.

Please help.

Which Power Cable? The 24 Pin or the 8 Pin?

Thanks for the replies.

I need to buy 2 of these I think so that I can route the cable along the side of Case's way arranged for cable routing.

Do you know if I can Crossfire 2 HD6850's with this PSU or not?

In this link it says only SLI certified. Means that Crossfire is now available?

Thanks ...

It might work but that is cutting it to close,you need a quality 600 watt or higher unit.

I have 700W version of OCZ Modxstream.

I can use right?

Indeed I dont understand why it has only SLI compatibility and Crossfire is not written. Are they totally different?
