Windows 10: I got a Modular Power Supply with no Wires, Where Can I buy Some?

    I got a Modular Power Supply with no Wires, Where Can I buy Some?


    So I was picking up a case from work they were throwing out, and I noticed it came with a 1000W Power supply, (Lucky day for me heh ,) but I noticed that there were no wires sticking out like how most lower wattage supplies usually come with. After speaking with a friend's brother about it, I came to learn these are a kind of power supply types known to be "Modular," which is a weird thing in my mind, but it overall makes a lot more sense perse. My thousand watt in question's back for the wires looks a lot like this:

    (I didn't have a Pic from home to show, but I recognize the Interface)

    And one thing That confuses me is in the bottom right's five pin complex they have there. As in, I do not understand the name those go under and I really need some wires for this supply that powers three SATAs, 2 PCIes, and what appears to be one long 24 Pin connector for the power supply that sports a good >~2ft in separation between the two on the motherboard to the supply itself. What I need to know is the terms for the 5-pin, and a good link to Newegg or something where I can Pick up these supposed wires.

    Also maybe the terms for the 8-pin, which otherwise, I think is just another PCIe extended or something.

    What is the actual make/model of the PSU?

    I'm not sure what the 5 pin connectors are on the picture that you attached. SATA power connectors use 5 pins, but the modular PSUs that I own use 6 pin (3X2) connectors at the PSU end for those.

    Maybe you can buy generic cables that'll fit the PSU, but I'd worry that they might be proprietary. Too bad that whoever discarded the case didn't leave the cables.

    As asked, What is the Make and Model# of the PSU? You can purchase modular cables from Ebay or from the manufactures web site: modular power supply cables | eBay

    It's not especially old if it has a 24 pin ATX power connector, a 4 pin 12V power connector, and an 8 pin EPS power connector.

    Looks like I may have guessed correctly about the 5 pin connectors being for SATA power.

    I hope that you can find mating cables. A quick check at fleabay wasn't encouraging.

    BEWARE! There is no standard for modular PSU cables and the cable pin outs may differ even for different PSUs from the same manufacturer. You need to find the exact cables for your PSU, else you risky frying some expensive components.
