When will people stop complaining about CableMod adapters melting their GeForce RTX 4090 and other pricey NVIDIA GPUs? Maybe soon, as the company has released a new version of its 12VHPWR 90-Degree Angled Adapter that’s been updated with the new CEM 5.1 female connector—a new design overseen by PCI-SIG that features sense pins with a more substantial offset (.45 mm vs. 1.7 mm), implemented to reduce the chances of what some fear could be a dead GPU, or, worse, a house fire. CableMod’s new adapters are available in Black, Gold, Purple, Pink, and other colors for $39.90.

CableMod 12VHPWR 90-Degree Angled Adapter Features

  • Slim Profile
    • Our 12VHPWR 90 Degree Angled Adapter only protrudes 21mm from your graphics card, which means increased space and more clearance between your GPU and your side panel. This enables installation of super wide cards in more narrow chassis.
  • Zero Bending
    • Unlike 90 degree cable connectors, our angled adapters utilize a reinforced PCB design to achieve an angled connection. No wire bending ensures full contact with all cable terminals, and zero risk of thermal issues through excessive wire and terminal stress from tight bending radii.
  • Multi-Layered Cooling Solution
    • To ensure peak performance, our angled adapters use a 2oz copper PCB with applied copper foil to aid heat dissipation. Combined with a thermal pad and a quality aluminum shell, this multi-layered design helps keep things cool, even under continuous loads.
  • Two Variants
    • The CableMod 12VHPWR 90 Degree Angled Adapter comes in two variants, making sure there’s a solution for graphics cards no matter which 12VHPWR power port orientation they have. For those with extra tight space requirements, a 180 Degree Angled Adapter, which routes the cable above the graphics card, is also available.
  • Awesome Styling
    • No matter which variant you choose, this 12VHPWR 90 Degree Angled Adapter looks great with its sleek styling and unobtrusive design. Available in multiple colors, there’s sure to be an adapter that matches the theme of your build.
