PSU Cable Compatibility and Pinouts

Modular power supplies give users the benefit of only plugging in the cables essential to powering their systems. However, not all power supply cables are interchangeable. The component end of the cable is standardized to industry specifications, while the power supply end varies per brand. As a result, it is crucial to use the correct cables. Explore our compatibility tables showcasing which power supplies can use the same cables, and the pinouts associated with them.

Simply match your power supply to the cable type when designing custom PC cables.

All pinouts are being viewed from the back of the connector where the wire is inserted.
