CableMod to the Rescue
Achieve cable management nirvana with CableMod 12VHPWR Angled Adapters These low profile adapters plug into your graphic card’s 16-pin 12VHPWR port, and enables the power cable to be plugged in at either 90 degree or 180 degree angles. Featuring a multi-PCB design and a sleek profile, this adapter helps increase clearance between the GPU and the side panel – perfect for today’s super wide GPUs.
Once plugged in, our 12VHPWR 90 Degree Adapter measures less than 23mm from the connector to the outer shell, which means increased space and more clearance between your GPU and your side panel. For even tighter spaces, our 180 Degree achieves a thin 16mm. This enables installation of super wide cards in more narrow chassis.
Unlike other angled cable connectors, our adapters utilize a multi-PCB design to achieve an angled connection. No wire bending ensures full contact with all cable terminals, and zero risk of thermal issues through excessive wire and terminal stress from tight bending radii.
Both the 90 Degree and 180 Degree Adapters come in two different connector orientations, ensuring there's a solution for graphics cards no matter which 12VHPWR power port orientation they have.
No matter which configuration you choose, this 12VHPWR Adapter looks great with its sleek styling and unobtrusive design.
December 2022 Update
Dear CableMod Community,
Thank you very much for signing up for our 12VHPWR Angled Adapter launch list! We are excited to bring this product to the community as soon as possible. As we have come to the middle of December, we wanted to give you an update on where we are with development, and what to expect going forward.
Development on the Angled Adapters has been our number one priority since the announcement, and we have been making good progress. We have already gone through multiple sample rounds and are actively tweaking to make sure they are perfect when they arrive in your hands.
Unfortunately, we have hit several setbacks during development. The biggest issue was the delay of certain components, specifically the male connectors. Two days before they were supposed to ship, we were notified that the shipment would be delayed due to a manufacturing issue. After finally receiving the connectors several weeks later, it appears that certain physical aspects of these components would increase the rate of failure also greatly slow down overall production. This has, unfortunately, set us back quite a bit.
In light of this, we have made the decision to invest even more resources and tool our own connector, rather than use an off-the-shelf part. These new connectors not only help streamline our design, but also improve graphics card compatibility and manufacturing speed. Once samples are in and have passed our internal testing, our plan is to send adapter samples out to various media outlets so they can test them as well and report their findings. We want to only deliver once we are absolutely sure that our design is rock-solid.
Our new projected timeline is as follows:
- New connectors samples – End Dec
- Connectors approved and produced – Mid Jan
- Media receives samples – End Jan
- Mass production – Mid Feb
- Shipping – End Feb
We know it’s never fun waiting for something to arrive, but we only want to deliver the very best to the community, and are unwilling to ship something half-baked. With the newly tooled connector and updated construction, we feel that we will have a solution for you guys that will be worth the wait.
For those concerned with scalpers, we have also fully prepared our manufacturing line so that we will be able to manufacture our adapters at volume once the design is finalized.
In other news, here’s a glimpse of what our adapter will look like in a variety of awesome colors.
We are planning to have these colors available at launch so that our adapters will integrate even better into your builds.
In case you haven’t seen them already, we have also released 3D models of each adapter model. These can be 3D printed, so you can see if our adapters will actually fit your graphics card. You can download these models below.
As always, we want to be fully transparent and let you know as soon as more developments arise. Thanks for sticking with us as we work to create the very best solution we can.

Thank you in advance for your generous support!
To the hardware community,
After what has been the biggest launch in our history, we want to first thank everyone who is supporting us and taking the time to give their feedback on our latest release.
The launch didn’t go as smoothly as planned, and we fully acknowledge that certain things could have been done better. We hope to avoid this sort of thing happening in the future, but as we found out about the various issues happening at the same time as everyone else, we got all hands on deck to help develop a nice solution for the community. Thanks to everyone for sticking by us as we try our best to deliver the very best product we can.
Since the launch, we’ve had several questions come up regarding the product and the launch in general. So, we wanted to take the time now to address some common queries that we’ve received.
Our original plan was to have all models available for sale. However, we were still waiting for several 3D models of various GPUs to come in to confirm compatibility. We didn’t want a situation where people put their money down on something, only to realize later that it didn’t fit with their hardware.
To avoid this, we decided to instead clearly state how each of the models worked, how they differed, and offer a more fleshed out compatibility list so that people would make the right choice and not be disappointed. Sadly, this took longer than expected, and new data came in literally one hour before launch. This delayed the actual launch as we were making last minute changes so customers would not be confused over which version to get.
As more information comes in, we will update the compatibility lists as quickly as possible.
If you don’t see your card listed, it doesn’t mean that the adapters won’t work. We are in contact with major AIB partners to receive models of their GPUs. Once we have confirmed compatibilities, we will update the page as soon as possible.
So far, we have confirmed that the following model won’t work with any of our variants:
Gigabyte AORUS GeForce RTX 4090 XTREME WATERFORCE
We will update this list as more information arrives.
The reason was to keep things as fair as possible.
We know everyone is hoping to receive their adapters as soon as possible, but we didn’t want those who haven’t yet received confirmation about compatibility to be left out in the cold. If they take a chance, buy a variant, and then discover it doesn’t work, then it would be a bunch of disappointed customers and an overworked customer service team as we would then need to work on returns/refunds/etc.
In the end, having the sign ups done in this way not only lets the customer change their mind if new information is released, but also gives us a better indication of which models will be more popular, and thus, allows us to make enough of each one to satisfy demand. It’s not ideal, but we felt that having people put money down without adequate information would have been much worse.
We don’t have confirmed pricing yet as we are still in talks with component vendors. We are also looking to gauge the overall demand as this will also affect pricing. As soon as we have confirmed pricing, we will notify everyone.
Regarding the different variants, they should all have the same pricing.
Here we are describing which direction the cable will end up being once the adapter is installed into your graphics card.
Cooler side means that the cable points towards the GPU cooler.
Backplate side means that the cable runs along the GPU backplate.
You are not locked in to your selection during signup, and can buy whichever variant you would like once they are available for purchase.
Email confirmations may be slower due to the number of signups we are receiving.
If you’d like to confirm whether or not your email is in the queue, simply enter your email again and you will be notified. If you’ve not confirmed your email, another confirmation email will be sent out to you. Don’t worry – your original place in the queue will be saved.
Once you’ve signed up, we will send you an email as soon as the adapters are available for purchase. The email you receive will have the purchase link inside, and using the email you signed up with, you’ll be able to purchase the adapter(s) you want. We expect this to happen in roughly 4-6 weeks.
People that signed up will have a 48 hour exclusive window to purchase their adapters first. After 48 hours, the product pages will be made available to the general public.
The adapters will first be made available on Global and EU stores, with availability on the US store roughly 2-3 weeks afterwards.
We will be closely monitoring the signups that come in. We will not be revealing what we are looking for specifically in order to not give scalpers and bots a chance to develop countermeasures.
