Full modular power supply question
 
Does any one know if there are any anti dust caps for modular power supplies, for the ports on the psu you are not using. I have found them for just about everything on a computer, except a psu.

I might be wrong but i think Kingwin had that one some of their old units
Been so long that i cant recall so again i might be wrong but there was a brand many years ago that had plugs on ports not used

None that I've ever seen

yeah i was thinking of making some molds or something to create my own.

its just really shocking to be honest, how many dust plugs exist for almost every port on the PC, but the one piece of hardware you def would want to reduce dust in, doesn't have 'em :). for context, i live near a quarry, in the summer and fall months, the dust it kicks up is insane. you can wash your car before you go to bed and wake up the next morning and there will be a thin coat of dust on it. even in the house, running hepa filters, i'm always end up blowing out my computer at least 2 or 3 times a month (an this is with dust filters on all the fan). I can only imagine what it is doing to my lungs...

thanks again for everyone who has replied so far.

its cause power supplies dont really have any standard connectors. they would have to make different covers for every power supply, or at least every power supply series.

If it's just to prevent dust from getting into the socket, just use some Scotch tape over the sockets you are not using. It's a cheap and reversible solution. The sockets won't be getting hot in terms of loss of adhesive.

As stated you could put tape over it. That said I have never heard of someone having a PSU go bad from dust in the terminals.

My Silverstone ST80F-TI actually came with removable dust-plugs in all the outlets.. Don't know if it's a standard Silverstone thing though.
