We previously said you should never mix power supply cables from modular power supplies. This is true, but there’s a way to do it safely with continuity testing.

This is pretty basic stuff. In this video, we show how to do a simple continuity test to determine if one PSU’s cables can be used with another PSU. You should typically avoid mixing and matching power supply cables, as doing so can cause the death of components or power supplies. It’s easy to accidentally short 12V to ground, for instance, or you might get lucky and just be unable to boot. It’s still possible to get a PSU running with cables that aren’t native to it, however, and that’s what we show today.
