  1. Upon researching online people have had theirs last 20+ years if looked after well and that nowadays they do not make them as good as they use to years back. You can flat out say replace it but it's not very helpful when you could have said "In my opinion it's risky because of it's age but in theory you could or could not do what you were suggesting on doing" that way people don't have to use funds they do not have and know it's on their heads if something went wrong. There just has to be 2 sides to the argument leaving the question asked answered with both a positive and negative
  2. Hi! I just bought it used for my dual xeon setup as it had 2 CPU 8pins and it works fine also it's 80plus Gold which makes it much more efficient than my old Thermaltake Toughpower 650w which had no 80plus at all and couldn't supply my now 844w minimum requirement.

The PSU is old so finding replacement cables is a hard task that's why i thought about using splitters. I have added some pics.
  5. Hi! I have a Cougar GX 1050w PSU but I'm missing some of the modular cables. All i have are 2x 8pin CPU connectors, 2x 8pin PCIE connectors and 4x SATA connectors. all of these are being used and i was wondering if it would be ok to purchased some splitters for the PCIE and SATA connectors so i can have another graphics card and more hard drives? I was reading online about people with single 12v rails doing this but my PSU has multiple 6x 12v rails @25amp each. but one thing the PSU manufacturer said about the PSU was this below: "DYNAMIC MU
