Seems fine.

If it's actually pulling the mobo, then it's not ideal though.

Ok but it can have tension? On the plug? Like on an angel?

Depends how much tension, but generally it's better to avoid it.

The angle itself is fine, but if the cable is pulling pretty hard on the motherboard it's bad. You don't want to have to flex your power cable or the board.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

It doesn't look like there's tension to me.

OK, what is considered tension? Like a little bit of force pulling it to one side? Or like literally so much to where  it’s actually bending it? sorry I’m new

and thanks btw

Kind of how if you look close, the wires bend to the left? This is fine?

So is there a chance I can damage my mother board. by having a little bit of tension on my motherboard? (where the CPU plugs in)

there is a different between pressure and not using the correct cable or the cable being put on the wrong way

if it works, it works, its only the asethetics if you want to make it look cleaner by plugging them all closer together. If you plugged them in and everything is working, it's fine. Unless it's on the inside. That's a different story
