Pre-orders for the CableMod 12VHPWR Right Angle Adapter will become available on October 31st. The adapter utilizes a multi-PCB design and will be available in two configurations allowing any kind of orientation of card installation without bending the 16-pin 12VHPWR cable at the card. Owners of either Founder Editions, or custom, RTX 4090 cards will no doubt want to keep an eye out for this following the now many reports of melting 16-pin cables/connectors.

CableMod states that “Unlike 90-degree cable connectors, our adapter utilizes a multi-PCB design to achieve a right angle connection.” It also says that no wire bending will ensure full contact with all cable terminals thus making zero risk of thermal issues from excessive wire and terminal stress due to tight bending of the cable. Dimensions for the CableMod 12VHPWR Right Angle Adapter are 36.3mm (H) x 29mm (W) x 23.2mm (D) which shortens the amount of outward protruding distance needed for the the cable from connector considerably.

CableMod has not announced the price for the new adapter. Meanwhile, those interested in replacing their own cables may want to check out the many 12VHPWR cables, and kits already available on its Kit Picker store page. Prices for these range from $19.90-$99.90 and are available in a wide range of colors and designs for various builds.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
