Cablemod to solve 12VHPWR cable issues
Angled adapter to the rescue.
Cablemod has announced the highly anticipated 90-degree angle power cable adapter for modern GeForce GPUs. This cable supports the full 600W spec, and it solves the most basic problem with RTX 4090 GPUs, which is insufficient clearance for power cables.
As we know, there are many RTX 4090 cards that are far wider than RTX 30 series. Not only the thickness and length are important, but the card’s width as well. To make matters worse, NVIDIA’s power adapter, which is added to every RTX 4090 card sold by board partners, needs a few centimeters of clearance on its own. As a result, many new RTX 4090 owners were forced to use their cards without side panels until a solution was found.
The 90-degree cable only requires an additional 23.2 mm of space to install properly. The connector itself will be available in two configurations, ensuring that it fits all RTX 4090 and most likely RTX 4080 series as well.
Unfortunately, the cable is not yet on sale. The company announced that pre-sale will start on October 31st, and can sign up to be notified as soon as it starts.
