Cabling Arrangement

All of the cables are of good length, nicely sleeved and provide flexible connectivity. The 8-pin and 6-pin PCI-E runs will help power the very latest graphics cards. There are also three ATX CPU connectors on two cable runs with one the flexible 4+4 variant, the second a standard 8-pin along with a single 4-pin connector. That should cover the need of any current motherboard.

The 20+4 main connector can be seen here. It is nicely sleeved almost all the way to the end of the run. Here you see the two CPU cable runs. The 4+4 cable is routed on 12V1 which is shared with the main connector as well as all of the molex and SATA power runs, even the modular ones. The 8-pin and 4-pin CPU power cable is routed on 12V2. This setup will easily accommodate the use of a dual CPU motherboard with no risk of overloading any particular 12V rail thanks to the 40 amp per rail rating and separation of the loads.

Here are the three PCI-E power runs. Included are three 6+2 pin and three 6-pin cables with each on a dedicated 12V rail (12V2, 12V3 and 12V4). That means that each video run can supply up to 40 amps for an individual card if you use the 4+4 cable for your CPU power. That is more than enough to power any modern graphics card. What is interesting is that there are two 6-pin connectors on each of the three PCI-E cable runs along with the 8-pin adapter to add two additional grounds. It is kind of nice to route one power run to a graphics card that supplies both connections. This should make for a nice clean install.

And finally, here is a look at the standard molex and SATA power cables. There are four SATA and two molex runs available at full capacity, enough to power 12 SATA devices and six molex power devices. That is more than enough connections for the storage junkies.
