Shrink Way Wielder

So you're running both off an ATX PSU, just off .. PCIe power cables or some such? Guess that should work (and you'd be guaranteed ripple/noise specs within ATX spec), but otherwise the AC-DC PSU shouldn't have any effect on the heat output or quality of the DC-ATX unit. Soldered cables vs. tiny socketed ones makes a big difference, though, as most small sockets/connectors are only rated for a few amps and can quickly overheat if loaded heavily. Also, how did you generate those loads - CPU stress testing? Your DC input cables look nice and beefy, but the outputs to the EPS and peripheral cables looks about as flimsy as what mine looks like. What gauge is the wire (should be printed on the sleeving)?You're welcome.
No worries, no promises I'll have spares.. building a new mini AM4 system
Nice! Those look like the ones I have except thinner wires.
Got two running a firewall
with two of them and stress tested them above 250W without issue.
They are running open though in a cool environment until I finish the cases for them.
A big part of that is likely the 94% efficient platinum PSU I use to power them.
Looks like if you upgrade the wires you should be fine. Be sure to test everything!
