Want your RTX 4090 cabling to be a little tidier? CableMod has the solution for you

Nvidia's RTX 4090 series graphics cards are chunky. They need to be with the graphics cards' 450W TDP. Most models are over three PCIe slots thick, and are so wide that they become curiously close to the side panels of most PC cases. That's bad news high power 12VHPWR connectors, as squeezing power cables beside side panels can result in cable strain, wire bending, and excessive levels of terminal stress.

Today, CableMod has revealed a 12VHPWR 90-degree adaptor that is designed to decrease the strain on these high wattage cables while offering PC builders a more stylish way to power their graphics cards. With this right angle cable adaptor, power cables will now only protrude 23.2mm away from your graphics card. This not only prevents cable squeeze between your GPU and your case's side panel, it also makes your power cable easier to connect and remove from some graphics card designs.

One of the critical parts of CableMod's 90-degree 12VHPWR design is that it is available in two configurations. These configurations allow this adaptor to support most RTX 4090 graphics cards and allows users to choose if they want their adaptor facing upwards or downwards, regardless of the configuration of the 12VHPWR connector on your graphics card.

Sadly, CableMod has not revealed what the price of their their 12VHPWR 90-degree adaptor will be, though they have confirmed that they will be available to purchase from October 31st.

I'll say it again like I did on Reddit and Cablemod actually said it wasn't a very good idea, but if they made this also as an encasing for your cables then it could actually also work as a GPU support to prevent sagging.Quote

You mean take the conector that's being very harshly criticised for its fragility with serious concerns about causing a fire if it fails and further turn it into a load-bearing part?Quote

I've been pretty checked out about all this atx 3.0 pcie connector stuff. Isn't it just a molex microfit connector? My experience with them has been pretty good when using them for other products. Or is it more down to the cables that are being used?Quote

Before final spec some designs caught fire with full load, and the connector isn't rated for constant reinsertions.


Mountain out of a molehill type of deal, it's going to be absolutely fine by the time consumers have their hands on them.Quote
