Cables and connectors
The unit is mostly modular apart from the 20+4 pin and the 4+4 pin CPU power connector; these cables are enclosed inside black braiding with rubber heat shrunk ends keeping all the individual cables neat and tidy.
On the unit itself are two different connections, a 6 (3×2) pin for PCI-e connectors and a 5 (5×1) pin for the SATA and molex connections – the PCI-e ones are also in grey to distinguish them further.
The modular cables are a little different – flat with a rubberised coating and should allow better airflow through the chassis as well as easier cable management. The following connectors are included:
- 2 * 6+2 pin PCI-e
- 6 * SATA
- 5 * Molex
- 1 * FDD
The dual PCI-e connections allow for either a high powered single graphics card or some multiple card configurations such as dual 4770s.
The SATA and molex connections contain 3 connectors per cable while the PCI-e has just the one 6+2pin per cable.
