A Detailed Look (Cont’d)

The front panel incorporates seventeen modular cable connectors, all nicely labeled; along with one mini-USB connector that allows connecting the NEX1500 PSU to a USB header on your PC’s motherboard.

The SuperNOVA NEX1500 power supply comes with a large assortment of all modular cables and connectors.  The red cables all supply 8-pin PCI-E connectors. Notice in the photo above that each wire is individually sleeved!   This might appear to have the potential to turn into a real rats-nest once installed, but in reality sleeving the individual wires makes routing the wires much easier (more flexible than cables). The key to a neat installation is to use a LOT of wire ties, bundling the wires into cables as you go. Personally, I like it!

The NEX1500 supports a total of 19 PCI-E connectors: (16) 6+2 Pin and (3) 6 Pin for multiple, high-end graphics adapter support.  There are eight red PCI-E cables with two 6+2 Pin PCI-E connectors on the end. The three 6 Pin PCI-E connectors are attached to the black 8-pin CPU cables.
