Yes I did google this and found nothing. . . . . bipartisan? Basically, my manual says do not swap any cables, but logically it is primarily referring to the PSU cables, not the power cable? Different posts from veteran builders all swer they have been using different cables whenever they see fit for years and have never experience an issue. I ask because what with radio shack going under I purchased a much longer WHITE Power cable which would compliment my white chassis. . . . HOWEVER it appears to be of lower gauge which is why I ask. While I know the connection is universal I would assume that logically the PSU company picks the gauge based on the current needed to be provided to the PSU? So I would think going down in gauge could be detrimental? It should be noted that both the readings on the side say 300V, which I assume means both can withstand 300V? however I cant find the gauge listed, but my radioshack Power Cable looks slightly smaller. Does anyone have a definitive answer on this? Thanks!
