PRODUCT COMPOSITION & PICTORIAL (cont'd)
Similarly, SinTek has incorporated a great solution for the 20/24-pin ATX problem. For a 24-pin motherboard, the user clips the extra plug onto the conventional 20-pin connector. This eliminates the need for an adapter and the possible voltage drop that may occur with its use.
The above table (from SinTek's website) lists cable features and lengths. There are plenty of connectors including six SATA power connectors and two PCI-E connectors. We'll discuss the ATX and 12V CPU connectors a little later. The lengths specified in the table are a little misleading.
The cables are actually 18 inches from the PSU connector to the first peripheral connector. The downstream connectors are then placed six inches from the previous one, yielding plenty of cable length for all but the largest cases. The included power cord is at bottom center.
All cables are very nicely sleeved with a black nylon braided material and secured with zip-ties and shrink-wrap. Very little of the internal wiring is visible.
A large-format manual is included and contains detailed specifications as well as installation information. The manual is easy to read and also contains information about SinTek's “hassle-free” five-year warranty.
