Connect PSU cables directly to PSU pins? (bypass plastic connector)

PSU = Power Supply Unit

In my custom case, there is no room between the plastic connector , protruding out from the power supply, and the case cover.

So, is it possible to connect the power supply cables directly to the pins on the power supply? Are there any kind of 90 degree crimp-on connectors or methods to do this that you Overclocker.net'ers found to work well?

Your best bet is to order a custom length 12V rail cable from a cable vendor or make your own cable.

Solder the wire directly onto the pin

That will look great

I'm open to doing this, but I cannot fit my soldering iron tip and wire into each of the power supply's plastic connector holes. How can I do this? Or, is there a way you recommend cutting the plastic modular connector that has the metal pins inside it?

Also bajer29, thanks for those links. When I looked inside the power supply connector, it's a MALE metal pin inside, so I don't think that 90 degree "Right Angle Motherboard Header Connector" you linked to would work...unless you had a method?

What brand and model is your PSU if its really old or mediocre you are better off buying a smaller PSU instead

Enermax MaxRevo 1500EWT (EMR1500EWT). I bought it because it was the shortest length I could find in this power and efficiency rating (80 Plus Gold).

Do you know of any shorter psu's that can match or surpass the above specs?

that sorta begs the question; do you NEED 1500 watts? HEDT/TR platform w/multi GPUs?

but thats another can of worms . . there are 90 degree molex housings you can replace the straight connectors on the PSU. bajer29 posted that first link and digging around there will show for 24 pin, 8 pin (EPS) 8/6 pin PCI-E connectors. you can look there and on digikey for the terminals. just mind the pitch (distance between the pins) on the housing and the amperage rating (11amps is best) on the terminals.


however i am neglecting some links since i really think modding the case panel would/might be much easier.

got a dremel?

What all are you powering with that bad boy? Also what chassis are you using? Any way to modify it?

The MaxRevo is 8 years old and the voltage regulation on the 12v rail was never all that great
Unless you have a 3 or 4 way GPU setup you dont need that much power so rather than modifying an old PSU replace it and buy a smaller one

The Corsair SFX600 is pretty good and its much smaller than your old Maxrevo

Yes I have a dremel and yes this is a fully water cooled system of 4 GPU's + 1 CPU.
Case = Raijintek Styx (modified to fit bigger radiators)
The power supply is venting out the side of the case opposite of the picture. I've been trying to avoid cutting this side of the case because I enjoy the clean brushed aluminum panel look. If there was a way to solder a wire onto each pin of the power supply connectors (that will be used), I could fit it all in the case!
