Cable Gurus help? I'm on my third PC upgrade audition and noticed none of these aftermarket power cords offers the "grip of death" one would expect at the IEC connection. One would think good stable contact would be the first order of business. One manufacturer even suggests this connection be checked periodically. I guess so, considering the weight of the cord seems to want to dislodge the connection.
Perhaps I just have POS male IEC's on my equipment?
Perhaps I just have not stumbled upon the correct power cord?
I would suspect some of our more obsessive tweakers have encountered this problem and could not sleep at night without coming up with a remedy. I'm thinking of wraping the cords IEC with some electrical tape in an effort to try to wedge it in the opening.
Any better ideas much appreciated.
