Cabling Arrangement

Nexus has this thing set up for an array of huge setups. Attached to the brick are five cables. 20+4 pin motherboard cable, 4+4, 8 pin PCIe and two 6+2 PCIe. In the pouch is one power cord, four 6+2 PCIe, three sata cables with three plugs, each totaling 9 sata, two molex cables with three molex and one floppy totalling 6 molex and 2 floppy and finally, one cable with 4 molex.


Again, a huge array of setups are possible here. The great thing about this modular setup is that you don't need an excessive amount of force to remove a cable once it has been set in place. The pieces fit together well with a solid click. The wrapping around each cable is also of noteworthy quality, with a pattern that doesn't end up being too garish.

The rail distribution is as follows.

The 24-pin ATX, PCIe 2x 6+2 pin and 6 SATA/4 molex are on 12v1. 12v2 feature the CPU 4+4, 8 pin 2x 6+2 PCIe as well as 4 MOLEX/3SATA. And finally 12v3 and 12v4 both have the remainder of PCIe 6+2 covered.
