Pros: Does what I needed it to.
Cons: would like to have seen the wires wrapped, but I knew that before I bought it.
Overall Review: kinda worthless writing a review on an extension cord lol.
Pros: Solves a nasty problem -- currently, it's hard to get a power supply that isn't huge, yet has dual 8-pin EPS-12V. My specific issue was a TYAN S7010 motherboard. I had an Antec Titan case with a built-in TruePower Trio 650W power supply (which only has a single 8 pin EPS-12V). The alternative was to get a power supply that was way too big for my needs (plus it was another $109). This splitter was a cheaper & easier solution.
Cons: The length of the arms of the "Y" was too short for my motherboard. I ended up getting some 18 gauge molex wire & electrical tape, and spliced in a few more inches. I would have given this product 5-eggs if I didn't need to do that (or if Athena made another version of the same product with longer arms).
Overall Review: Here's how I figured out that my splice job was a safe thing to do:
18 guage molex is rated at 5Amps.
I've got dual Xeon E5520 cpus with a thermal design power of 80w.
Given: 80W * 2/12V= 13.33A, and TPW is usually 20%-30% peak,
we're talking at most 17.33A peak (13.33A * 1.3 = 17.33A).
Each limb of the Y is made out of 4 strands of 18 guage molex wire,
so that's 4.33 A / wire, which is still below the conservative 5A/wire rating.
Each rail of the PSU is 19A, so that worked out too.
The extra voltage drop was tiny -- not a problem.
Pros: This cable has all of the bells and whistles you could ever want from a power cable. Its various colored wires are mind blowing! You could just stare at it for hours. I have cable envy.
Pros: I have an Antec case with a bottom mounted PSU, which meant my 8-pin connector had to take an awkward route over top of my video card to reach its connector on the motherboard instead of using the case's cable organization space behind the motherboard tray. This cable is exactly what the doctor ordered and just the right amount of length. And it's versatile; it could step in as an adapter if need be.
The cable is nicely sleeved and both connections are secure. The connectors didn't give me any fuss.
Cons: The margins on extensions and adapters and specialty do-dads like this must be great! Grumble grumble. Oh well, it's still just a few bucks.
Overall Review: The inside of my case looks nice and neat now. Apartment is still a mess.
Pros: Allows me to run the ATX12V line up around the motherboard and down to the connector from my bottom mount PSU, instead of dragging it right across the board. It makes it look much neater and is a big help in my Antec P180 with Intel D945PSN where the ATX12V connector is an awefully long way from the PSU.
Cons: Wire gauge could be a bit heavier.
Overall Review: Simple and works, what more do you want?
Pros: A must for a bottom mount power supply in a full size case. I couldn't even plug my connector into my MB. This allowed me to route the line behind the back panel and out of the way for a clean installation. For how cheap it is, if your buying a case with a bottom mount power supply, it's probably best you pick this up as well.
Cons: Ugly colors.
Pros: Its a wire, or more precisely 24 wires with 2 dongles attached to the ends. Electricity flows through it nicely and it smells of polyvinylchloride. It works.
Cons: It is not made of a space age copolymer and you can not buy one at 3AM from Ron Popeill or that other loudmouth on the TV. Newegg does not throw one in for free when you buy a full tower, but why should they? Last time I checked they were in business to make a profit from selling things, not give them away at a loss?
Overall Review: The 3.3 volt orange wires are perfectly colored for Halloween when combined with the black common grounds. The +12VDC leads are a wonderful shade of yellow and the PS ON leads green compliments them nicely. The +5VDC reds are truly the color of my local fire departments equipment. Dupont Automotive finishes could have not matched them better. And the blue -12VDC wire is the color of my favorite fishing hole. But I saved the best for last. They have cleverly invented some new kind of material as the N/C pins are connected with a totally invisible wire. Good job. I have now spent more time writing this piece of valuable info that I paid for the thing. I am Value Added and I approved this message.
Pros: It's a square 4-pin ATX 12v extension cable, and it works.
Overall Review: If you have a case with a bottom mounted psu, and you need your atx 12v cpu power cable to reach the top of the mobo, this is a MUST BUY. If you're buying an Antec Nine Hundred, get this cable with it.
