@Thehack I'm considering pairing a 1050ti or 1650 with a Ryzen 1600 and RPS 200w unit I have. Have you had any issues with powering such a setup with it? I know maxing out the CPU and GPU together would be pushing it but under gaming type loads I feel it should be good if not a little tight on power budget.

Thoughts?
I'm running Meanwell 200w+Pico160XT with a 1050ti and 2400g CPU with no issues even during all day LAN parties.

Any idea when the M2427 for the Corsair Platinum will be back in stock please ? Looking to order one along some SATA, cpu and GPU cables.

Thanks in advance.

I’m about to place my order, can you please tell me if it’s possible to make the sata cables longer than 10cm please ? I’d like 2 of them but 10cm isn’t enough, need a 15cm with 2 sata power connectors and a second cable with 3 sata connectors total: 2x20cm sata connectors and a 3rd one with 25cm.
Possible ? And if yes how to order please ?

There aren't any longer types available. So unfortunately, not possible.

It comes with a longer 2x sata, but not a 3rd one that fits your requirements

Just to say thanks, received my order yesterday and went into my parts box (I’m gathering odd parts for a near future build).

I’d be grateful if someone can provide a pic of the extra platinum wire that needs to be plugged in to the GPU and how is supposed to be done.

Thanks again @Thehack

Step 1: Locate the GPU wires. The wires that goes from the PSU to your GPU. Examine both ends of the wires, the plastic pieces are called connector housings. Both housings are 8 pin housings. One end will only have 7 wires, with the 8th hole being an open pin housing. The other will have 8 wires in the housing, ignore that one.

Step 2: Locate the loose platinum wire. It's the only loose wire that's not plugged into anything, with a piece of electrical tape around it. It comes with your M2427. Remove the electrical tape.

Step 3: Plug the terminal, that's the silver looking metal piece at the end of the loose wire, into the open pin housing. There's only one way it'll go in, and it'll click when it is properly inserted.
