Cables and Connectors
All of the cables on the PC Power Cooling Silencer 750 Watt are braided in black with black heat shrunk ends. This improves airflow inside your system case. The peripheral power cables i.e. SATA and Molex, are braided only up to the first connector. This allows the cables to be more flexible.
As for connectors, all the SATA and PCI-E connectors use black connectors whilst the others use the standard translucent ones. It would have been nice for all the connectors to be one colour, although this isn’t too much of a concern.
The cables and connectors present are as follows:
- 1x ATX 20/24 Pin
- 1x CPU 4 Pin
- 1x Motherboard 8 Pin
- 2x PCI-E 6 Pin
- 2x PCI-E 6/8 Pin
- 2x 3x SATA
- 2x 3x Molex
- 1x 2x Molex + 1x Floppy
The ATX connector is of the 20 or 24 pin variety. This means that it is backwards compatible with old motherboards. The extra four pins are simply snapped into place when needed.
The 4 Pin CPU power cable is a singular cable and does not have four extra pins which can be attached for 8 pin motherboards. Instead, there is a single 8 Pin cable to cater for this. In my opinion, this is a better as the connectors are then easier to attach and is a lot less fiddly when removing the connector.
The PCI-E connectors come in two flavours with this power supply. There are two 6 pin PCI-E connectors and two 6/8 pin connectors. This gives you the most freedom when connecting your graphics cards(s).
