I was moving my PC parts to a new 600T case today and I accidently slit one the Sata power cables from my PSU. It didn't completely sever it so I took some electrical tape and pinched together really tight.

I know this is Jerry Rigged but I mean it didn't really look that bad.

Anyways, I have been this clicking sound every min or two when my PC is under full load (not when idling though.)

I want to purchase another cable but I am having a really hard time finding one online.

I found a nice picture of my PSU, the coolermaster silent pro.

If you guys would take a look you can see that I slit the cable that has one column and pins. It's the ones on the right. I believe they were the Sata power cables.

Do you guys know where I can purchase one? I have an older Seagate PSU lying around but it doesn't have those one column cables.

Thanks.

RMA it saying that it's defective?

I don't mind spending the money on a new cable, I just don't know where to find one.

Usually good to try going through the company parts sections for situations like this.

Also have both 5pin to molex and sata right there on their own site.

I take it I want the SATA version and not the Molex, right?

It looks like there site is using fancybox too. Nice, I love that plugin,

Get whichever you need, in this case it seems you want a SATA. Hell, get one or two of each for backups, they're fairly cheap, from CM, anyway.

You can always get a Molex to Sata converter too, those are pretty cheap and standardized so you can get them from anywhere, eg. Monoprice (cheapest place for cables).

Love monoprice.com

Wasn't even thinking about that. Yeah, if you have a free molex, you could also just do that. Looks to be about 3.50 on monoprice, after shipping, for the converter.
