My System Specs


You can attempt to draw too much current through a cable. Ex: trying to run my electric pressure washer on an extension cord that is not of a thick enough gauge to carry the required amperage resulted in a warm extension cord and the pressure washer itself never reaching full pressure. For the most part if your power supply doesn't have a cable I wouldn't add more. An exception being if you are no where near the limit and require more molex/sata...those aren't going to be killing a PSU any time soon.
