The 12VHPWR By Cablemod Has Also Melted 

After weeks of relative quiet on the subject, the issue of melting RTX 4090 cables has once again come to the forefront. This time, the problem affects a custom cable designed and manufactured by CableMod, a company known for its high-quality, custom-designed cables for PC components.

CableMod was quick to announce that they were working on a solution to this problem, in the form of their custom 12VHPWR cables. These cables are designed to replace the original NVIDIA adapters, which have been known to be prone to overheating and melting. The custom cables from CableMod are made from high-quality materials that are built to withstand high temperatures and provide a reliable connection for your RTX 4090 graphics card.

According to CableMod, the custom 12VHPWR cables are designed to work seamlessly with the RTX 4090, providing a stable power supply and reducing the risk of overheating and melting. They have also been rigorously tested to ensure they meet the highest standards of quality and safety.

The issue of melting cables for the RTX 4090 graphics card has been a concern for many users, but according to Nvidia, the problem seems to stem from user error. They claim that the problem only occurs when the cable is not plugged in correctly, and that the new 16-pin cables are harder to insert fully, which may be causing users to not plug them in properly.

NVIDIA has stated that the number of reported cases of melting cables has dropped significantly since they made this statement. This could be a indication that the problem was caused by user error all along, and that the new 16-pin cables are not the root cause of the issue.

However, as a precautionary measure, NVIDIA recommends users to check the cables regularly and make sure they are properly plugged in. To further prevent any problem, NVIDIA also encourages users to use high-quality, third-party cables that are designed to withstand high temperatures and provide a reliable connection for your RTX 4090 graphics card. This can help to avoid the problem of cables melting and ensure that your GPU is working at its full potential.

In recent news, a Redditor who purchased a custom power cable from CableMod has reported that despite inserting the cable all the way into the graphics card, to the point where a click sound could be heard, the cable still melted. Fortunately, the graphics card was not impacted by the malfunction.

CableMod, the company behind the custom cable, has responded to the thread, and seems to be taking a proactive approach to addressing the issue. They are suggesting that if the cable is found to be at fault and the GPU is no longer working, they may cover the cost of a replacement. This shows that the company is taking responsibility for their product and is willing to work with customers to find a resolution.

This incident raises concerns about the reliability of custom cables, especially for high-end graphics card like the RTX 4090. However, it’s important to note that this is an isolated incident and not all cables from the same manufacturer may face the same problem. Additionally, it’s also important to remember that melting cables are not only a problem with custom cables but also with the original cables that come with the GPU.

It’s important to note that if you happen to encounter a similar issue with the CableMod custom cable, there is no need to worry about reimbursement. The company is dedicated to resolving any potential problems that may arise with their products. This is the first reported case of a melting cable from CableMod and it appears that, even weeks after the issue was officially resolved, instances of melting cables are still being reported.

It is uncertain whether the user in this particular incident inserted the cable correctly, but it is ultimately up to CableMod’s service team to determine the root cause of the problem. It is recommended that if you encounter any issues with your cables or any other component, you should reach out to the manufacturer for assistance.
