    SOLVED MY M2-ATX power issue with my SP13000!

    fixed it by swapping ends of the ATX connector.
    ..damn, that was an easy fix.

    what do you mean by swapping ends ???

    You mean putting the mobo end into the M2-ATX & vice versa??

    v8 scimitar, did you try this??
    i wish it would be as easy as that

    Yes I did and it made no odds with me. The only thing that is different between the 2 ends are one set of grounds goes direct to the drives part of the loom. The other end still gets a ground but its looped from another terminal. This shouldnt make any odds but hey I am really glad its working for you.

    yes, i was sitting there looking at the connectors trying to figure out how in the world that made a difference.
    i sat there for a few minutes scratching my head until i decided to stop questioning Mr. ATX Cable, and just accepted it.

    maybe it's some form of grounding issue on my end?

    Perhaps there was some dirt on the cable? If it works it's great, but try to reverse it again. If it doesnt' work, then forget this dirt idea and stick to the wierdo cable theroy
