Default Pwer cabling for HDX2 and new Mac Pro Rack

Having a nightmare time trying to find the cable(s) that work
The one i have from my expansion chassis don’t match up to any of the Belkin cable kit cables
Ordered a triple pwr cable that said HDX from Hong Kong off of Reverb
Same problem
Doesn’t fit motherboard or any of the Beldens
Anybody have any info on how to find a cable(s) that fit?
Thx

Can you include photos? There isn’t anything proprietary about Apple’s connector or the HDX power connector. You can pick them up at any computer parts store.

The pins are different shapes. Double check the orientation?

Wow, what a ripoff for such a simple cable. Parts literally would cost you about $4 if you could crimp it yourself.

Agreed but this was an example.
I would try Nashville Vintage King.

Why Avid can't have an order-Part-Menu for it's hardware is _ _ __ not right.

Did you not get multiple cables with you HDX cards?
What HDX cables do you have now?

Install was seamless here.

There should have been two cables that came with your HDX cards. I’d look around to see if you still have the other one, because it plugs right in. If you only have the other cable, you probably need an adapter. One comes with the Belkin kit, or you can probably find it somewhere like Fry’s electronics.
