Need help with PSU (NZXT HALE82 700W)

Hello guys!

So I would like to switch my 550W PSU, to my dad's NZXT HALE82 700W. Apparently he doesn't know where his PCI-E cables are, and I don't seem to find any cable (only 15$+) that is good for this PSU and has a 8 pin end, to fit my gtx 1080.

I finally found someone who could create this cable with his hands, but he requires me to measure the voltage with a multimeter I guess, in each hole of the PCI-E connection part in the PSU so he doesn't mess up the + and - in the cable. I don't have the device to do it, so I thought I'd ask if anyone here can help me with that, so I can finally get a PCI-e cable relatively cheap. (I am from the EU btw)

Thanks in advance, and Happy Holidays y'all!

  1. Doesn't it already have Two PCIe cables hardwired into it?

    It's fully modular

  3. Then you need to link me to exactly that model, is it the V2?

    I can't check it now but I can't find any v1, and v2 looks exactly the same, so yeah.

  5. I'll come back when you show us what one because the different versions are made by different companies.

  7. Yeah the V2 is a Sirtec , not a very good PSU really if you are attaching a nice graphics card to it.

    The other problem with it is, there's no data on the pinouts I can just hand over to you. I don't have any any off the shelf guide for that unit. Don't mix cables from other PSU's (you already know this, obviously)

    However, even a VERY inexpensive 12v automotive circuit tester will identify which pins are ground and which are 12v. I don't know where you are in the world, but such a device normally has an alligator clip at one end for attaching to ground and a probe at the other end for touching a pin, it simply lights up in the presence of 12v or won't if you touch a ground pin.

    I see them on the shelves of dollar store for a buck and a quarter, so I don't imagine they are hard to locate.

    just to give you an idea of what I mean and how cheap they are

    I have been known use cables from other psu's and simply pull and reinstall the pins in the right places to be correct.

    Oh thanks!
    Btw others on another forum suggested me to simply just buy a new PSU because both PSUs are bad. Is it really worth investing like 100$ in a new PSU?

  9. it is, PSU's are the heart of the system and a good one eliminates a lot of future problems.

    Would you suggest getting another 550W (was thinking of corsair rmx or evga g3) or should I get higher W?

  11. You don't really need more watts, just good quality.
