Are you using 4-String or 3-Dimple 12VHPWR connector terminals?

All MODDIY cables and adapters are using top-quality high-current 4-String terminals as recommended by Intel.

This design makes the male connector much more resilient to weakening contact from pull forces arising from cable bending. The resulting connector would offer superior structural integrity of the connection.

We have sold tens of thousands of our 12VHPWR 16-pin cables and adapters, and there is no melting incident whatsoever, ZERO. This can prove the point that using top-quality materials and parts is always the key to make 12VHPWR products safe and reliable.

Crimp Contacts inside of the cable plug are recommended to use the 4 Spring design instead of 3 dimple design (as shown in below figure) which will increase the contact area for electrical current flow inside the 12VHWPR connector and reduce the temperature rise of each contact. — Intel
