    Corsair HX520 - 3x SATA power cable

    I recently bought a Corsair HX520 for my PC. However my pc has 3 HDDs, all SATA powered. The PSU only has a 2 x sata power cable, meaning i've got one HDD i cant plug in. I know i can buy adapters but the space in my case is tight as it is and my previous PSU, which came with a 3 sata power'd cable fitted in perfectly cable wise.


    I've searched the internet high and low for a corsair cable, but haven't had much luck. i've bought other makes of PSU 3 x sata power cables(a zalman one) which included the same PSU fitment (modular design) and they fit perfectly, but with them plugged in the PC doesnt fully boot.

    Does anyone have any ideas on where i could source one from? Other PSU makers sell them, so is there a reason corsair dont?

    the cable im after:
    Computer hardware and software at amazing prices, available online from Scan Computers UK

    thanks in advance.

    Did you email CS at the link I provided above? It's not an email link for RAM GUY or Warranty info.

    Customer service replied to me and your cables will ship today. I do not have an estimate on how long the shipping will take.

    Re: Corsair HX520 - 3x SATA power cable

    Hi I have the same problem as Andehh above. Having bought the Corsair HX520w I need 3 SATA cables but only 2 are supplied and if I use another make it will void the warranty. I have checked out Corsair web site in US to no avail, and I'm unable to establish Corsair contact.

    Unless I can locate 2 SATA cables I will reluctantly rma to supplier.
    Any help that you can supply much appreciated.
    regards

    Please go to the Corsair forum and ask RAM GUY directly or, send me a PM there with all of your shipping information and contact information. Since you are a new member here, you cannot send PMs. I am still registered there under my original name of SPECMIKE.

    Thumbs up Re: Corsair HX520 - 3x SATA power cable

    Hi Yellowbeard,
    many thanks for your immediate response. I did go to the forum as suggested but was unable to contact ramguy, (my fault for not knowing my way around). I contacted Corsair and they shipped 2 SATA cables that arrived today. My sincere thanks to all involved.

    I am now able to start my first new build. And for anyone interested, as detailed below

    Lian-Li PC 60 plus ll Black,
    Asus P5K-E/wifi-AP,
    Intel Dual Core2 E6750 2.66gh,
    Corsair HX 520w
    Crucial Ballistics DDR2 pc2-6400
    Hitachi Deskpro Pk 250gb x 3, plus 80gb Seagate (Ide from current pc installed 15 months ago)
    LG Super Multi DVD
    Sony Floppy
    Asus ATI video card 3450 @ 512mb.

    Build is for digital photography cs2 not gaming. At seventy I have to take it a bit slower.
    Any comments or info appreciated.
