Gamer purchased from the company material power adapter 12VHPWR costing $29, and now he showed it docked with an ASUS TUF RTX 4090 graphics card. Needless to say, this solves the main problem with the original cable, which needs space before bending.
The adapter it uses features a custom 90-degree connector that allows you to place all four 8-pin PCIe cables that go into the adapter either below or above the card, depending on the model.
All common adapters 12VHWPR require at least 35mm of space before bending, but many users with smaller cases simply don’t have that much headroom. When the first reports of melting cables came out, many decided to use their RTX 40 GPUs with open cases, now the right angle adapters solve this problem.
Company CableMod finally showed off its 90-degree connector. This adapter still requires the original cable to be used, but it will be better thanks to several special projects in the pipeline.
The company is also working on four different configurations. As mentioned earlier, on some graphics cards the 12VHPWR connector is rotated, while some users prefer to run cables under the card, and some use the space above.
CableMod also provides 3D printable models for advanced users to check if the connector fits as expected. The only downside with CableMod adapters is that they are not yet on sale, but should be available in the coming weeks, possibly by the end of February)
