Pre-made Power cables for AKiTiO Enclosures & Dell DA-2 PSU
I came across
this eBay store today with these pre-made power cables. They are perfect for building an eGPU using AKiTiO Thunderbolt enclosure and Dell DA-2 power brick.
Update: Removed due to inconsistent quality and bad customer service.
Side note: These cables are custom made. I bought one, but it was no good, and it caused the DA-2 to short out.
Up side is, the seller is very responsive on ebay, I sent him pictures and he confirmed he goofed up when placing the wiring and is sending a replacement. Someone on the other board got one that was wired incorrectly too. Once I get a confirmed one working I'll post pictures so people can compare.
Quality seems pretty good. I tugged all the wires to make sure they were seated properly. Everything is cable wrapped and heat-shrinked.
I'll post pics of the good one so there's no confusion in the future.
Providing it works like it's supposed to, it's a good option if you don't want to go through the hassle of making one yourself.
Edit: 3rd time's a charm. He sent the wrong cable. Expedited shipping on this one, but he offered a partial refund for the hassle.
If anyone needs help and custom cables, let me know. But I can't make them cheaper than the eBay ones since I have to order all the parts individually.
I'm interested too, how much for a da-2 to pciGfx + Thunder3?
@Dschijn if I recall correctly, you're in Germany? If you'd like to start a post on custom cable services, I can link you to our Partners page.
Will do that later, thanks! 🙂
