So I want to get rid of the cable that has the molex connectors and I just bought a sata power extension with 4 sata power connectors. My question is that if it's ok to power 2 ssds, 2 hdd's, a fan controller and an led strip with one sata power cable (3 sata power connectors) +extension (4 extra sata power connectors)?

I'm looking to replace my HX620 soon, it's still in good condition though. What should i get? Want a fully modular one.

Hi,

If I want to buy extension cables can they be any 4 pin, 6 pin, or 8 pin cables? I noticed that corsair has cable sets that have lettering on them for what series of psu's they are for, but does that really matter? As long as the cable fits and has same connectors it should be fine?

thanks

As long as they are extensions that plug into the cords coming out of the Power Supply. NOT into the Power Supply itself.

If you still want a Corsair PSU then you want an AX or AXi series Power Supply

Thanks for the reply.

So do I have to buy the hx/thx specified cables for the hx1050? So either I sleeve them myself or pay for the whole set sleeved since I don't see sleeved separate cables. I also need longer cables. So these
are no good? http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=34_804_887_936&products_id=28556

I was thinking it might be easier (and cheaper if you count time involved in the work) to get braided extensions instead of doing the sleeving or buying a whole kit when in reality I just need 5-6 of those cables at most.

So for instance instead of messing around trying to sleeve the 24 pin atx I was just thinking of buying http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=34_804_887_936&products_id=28632 and that would give me that clean look inside the case. I also have a freaking monster case now (Elysium just came in today!) and will probably need extensions for the ssd, hd's, and other stuff.
I really just need 3 of the molex extensions for use with fans, fan controller, pump and such. I probably need 2 of the extensions to power my ssd, 2 hd's, and 2 blue ray/dvd drives. So obviously a whole set is over kill. I can't even find individual cables on their site, only sets of them.

Any suggestions are welcome and I just though extensions while serving their purpose could also be used as a "cheap" way to get braiding at the same time. I don't want to waste money on their whole set, or sleeving heatshrink and time involved, when I can use that money to get braided extensions that will serve dual purposes.

Thanks

Both of those cables are fine because the attach to the wires already coming out of your Power Supply. If you were to buy the whole wire kit from Corsair those are replacement cables, and I believe that they are the same length. I would say if you wanted to achieve the sleeved look without the work and need the longer cables just use those extensions.

Thanks man. I see exactly what you mean. I guess to plug the extensions directly to the psu you would have to compare the pin layout and make sure it matches? If I understand correctly why you can't just plug in any cable into any psu. I would assume that if the pin layout is the same it might be safe to plug in directly to the psu? I saw another post where a guy did that for his ax860 I think and used wires from the axi 860 after comparing the pin layout. (btw +rep)

It's the connection that's the issue Corsair uses a different connection for the cord to the power supply. An extension plugs into the cord itself not the power supply.

Like so:

Power Supply>Cable>Extention

Not like:

Power Supply>Extention

I wish I had a picture to better explain but I can't seem to find one.
