Hi all,

As I am planning to buy a 3080 FE, I was looking into getting custom cables for the power cable.

I saw pslatecustoms.com is going to make some, but unfortunately non sleeved cables as the connector is a bit small.

So I was wondering if I could give a try to make my own. Does anyone have seen where we could get the 12 pin connector part?

Or at least what the technical name of it? If I Google 12 pin connector, I just get the NVIDIA card related articles. I would need to know how an electronic part shop would refer to it...

Any input would be welcome :)

Thanks

Technical name is:

MOLEX MICRO FIT 12 CIRCUIT DUAL ROW

However, the housing may be customized. It happed with the PCIe connector, which is a customized version of MOLEX MINI FIT JR 8 CIRCUIT DUAL ROW

Just in case someone is interested, pslatecustoms started releasing his custom cables.

I found them by luck while browsing the website in the contact section :


I just bought one, I love his work and I was also missing some other cable. So "what's the hell". Now I just need the GPU 😅

Just in case someone is interested DreamBigbyRay on Etsy also started to make the 12pin cable. It's a pretty decent price as well:

Since we start listing all the custom cables, it is also worth mentioning that seasonic power supply owners can get their 12 pin cable for free :)

See there to get yours : https://seasonic.com/request-12pin-cable

And I also saw some sleeved cables there :

But I think you may not be able to close the side panel of the M1 with those.

Just out of interest, what is the typical length required for the GPU cable in the ncase. I haven't built it yet but I plan to get the Corsair SF750 and the 3080 FE.. eventually. I plan to have the fan of the PSU blowing out of the case.

I haven't received my custom cables yet. It will take a couple of weeks before I get them. (And I also don't have the card...)

For what it is worth, I took a measuring tape to get a rough estimate. With like 23cm you can go from where I expect the middle of the card to the power supply while making square angles. If you cut corners, 20cm should be enough. I will confirm when I get my cables.

Yeah, I guess that's a good option if AMD offering is competitive 🙂

For me, I want Cuda. So there is no other choice. I still have my Titan Pascal which does a decent job, I can wait
