Planned Voluntary Safety Recall of CableMod 12VHPWR Angled Adapters, V1.0 & V1.1

About a month ago, I received several Cablemod products, including cables and angled adaptors. In general, I am not a fan of adaptors. I always advise against using them since they add an extra point of failure. Nevertheless, I proceeded testing using my precious RTX 4090, which I paid for (it is not sponsored by anyone). I didn’t notice any issues with the samples I got, 4-5 adapters, but as it seems, the general production wasn’t as good, leading to a recall from CableMod. This makes me feel awkward, although I have a whole video and a ton of measurements showing that what I received was in good operating condition and without problems.

The screenshot above shows the temperature of the adapter after 44:24 of full load (556W average, 600W in total to the RTX 4090), and I let the test run for more than an hour at 40°C ambient. 

This is the first and last time that I test adapters and similar products in my channel and lab since if I cannot test everything that comes out of the production line, I cannot be sure about these products.

  1. Thank you Aries for work, you are doing God’s work! Your response to the recall was immediate, and I did remove mine yesterday after the Cablemod announcement, but my midi-tower case is very tight to have the cable as is to my Gigabyte Gaming OC 4090, because the PSU manufacturers recommend starting to bend the cable after 4cm from the plug point, which hits the case wall!
    Honestly, I don’t know what is best in each case with the 12VHPWR frenzy those months, since either (adapter or not) seems to be dangerous more or less!

    Anyway, God bless your family, and we wish you Merry Christmas and Blessed New Year in our beloved (and -still- ancient-Greek speaking) Cyprus!

    Να σας έχει καλά η Παναγιά μας αδερφέ, μας βοηθάς πολύ με όσα κάνεις και μας αφαιρείς την φοβία της αγνωσίας μας!
