    Why doesn't anyone make a cable for the M4-ATX?

    Why doesn't Mini-box make a 10-pin cable for this PS? They make a killing in terms of sales! I'm sure someone could make a cable that was both functional and professional looking, in mass production. They provide a cable with the M2 for this purpose, but obviously the functionality on the M4 is more advanced. But I still wonder why they sell this thing without the proper cabling for ALL its features. At least provide the ability to purchase it if it's "extra". Some of the posters here have done some great work patching their own cabling. But why should we have to make our own? Thoughts?

    Good God, I'll start making them. They are so easy to make.

    I took a standard IDE cable and cut off the 5 columns at the end of the cable (5 cols x 2 rows) and soldered the necessary USB, motherboard, and amplifier thump wires to their respective destinations...and voila!

    I agree, there should be something for those who are not very technically inclined, but it's honestly real easy to make.

    Or even easier:
    use an internal usb header cable, and just change one of the ends for anti thump (if used) and motherboard power..

    These cables come with many fan controllers and cases, and can also be found separately.

    I just open up my junk box of cables and made my own cable. I know a lot of you guys have these usb cables somewhere in your house if you build a lot of pc like I do.

    I have received WAY more help from short-circuit than mini-box(read that as NONE). Even tho I'm disappointed with the m4-atx I bought from them, I would continue to do business with them.

    Although I bought a faulty M2-ATX from short-circuit they replaced the unit for me, which wounded up being faulty too, and the guy I kept in contact with, Carl, was generous to replace the M2-ATX with M4-ATX. I only paid the difference.

    Their customer service makes them very worthy to trade with....just my $0.02 from personal experience.
