We have a new power supply for my sons PC. The power connector on the new supply is a straight one,we need it to be 90*. Can I cut and splice the old 90* connector onto the new supply cable harness?

you can, I assume you are soldering and using heat shrink over the joints, and talking about the 20/24pin connector?

you might be able to find a 24pin to 24pin connector. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/24PIN-TI-24pin-90-Degree-righ...


I'm sorry I should have been a little more specific, I need the connector that powers the hard drive to be 90*

I assume it's still ok ( yes I will solder and heat shrink the connections). Is that correct.

Ah, I suppose you can splice them too, but you can also buy converters for them too:

I've seen power extension cables with right angles on the end too.

This might be easier than 'splicing'
