Can I remove the unused power cables?

Hi everyone,

 

I just bought and installed an Asus RTX 2070 mini on my Nuc 9i9QNB. 

 

As you can see in the pictures, everything is pretty tight and there isn't room for that power cable, which is not being used. 

 

My question is: would it be possible to remove it?

 

I noticed it has some small clamps (see picture 3). Would it be possible to detach it from those clamps? 

Thanks a lot. Ignacio.

You could, but you would be voiding your warranty if you did, so I suggest that you don't.

My dGFX card was not quite as tight as yours, but you should still be able to route it down along the end of the card. Just be careful as you push it in that you do not unplug any of the (other) wires connected to the secondary distribution board.

Hope this helps,

Not really. And not in that section. If you ever noticed Q.C. stickers on some electronic devices it means that that device was tested by an industry professional. In this case it would be the hardware analytic.

If related to your question the test would ensure proper maximum and minimum voltage that can travel in the wire. Usually Hz power. Both are important.

The reason I mention that is because that area you pointed out connects an additional wire and you are most likely going to split the two. In that case the chances of you connecting at least one desired back is astronomical. It's just not recommended. And to be honest the sensors today provide no real hard way of putting electronics backs together without good experience.

It may even not get the same results with same solder. And if it's just a plain shop question just consider 'block' words.
