Hello. I recently put my pc together after it being disassembled for a while. However, I think I might have the power cables for my antec tpII 550W and my dell 2407fpw confused. One of the power cords says I-SHENG IS-14 13A 125V 1625W and the other says I-SHENG IS-14 10A 125V 1250W. I do not want to plug and check because I am afraid I might fry either the PC or the monitor. Thanks for the help guys.

one says 13-a and the other is 10-a. i would say that those are amps, so try and see how many amps your ps/monitor both take in.

Fortune, it doesn't work like that.

It really shouldn't make a difference cheema.
Just to be sure your Antec Power supply has a overload feature that would cause it to shut down before any damage was done. But I can almost guarrentee the I-SHENG IS-14 13A 125V 1625W is for the Antec power supply as a monitor wouldn't draw as much as a PSU.

i was just guessing (which prolly wasnt the best idea) cuz all my components use the same kind of plug; none of them have any specific markings.

I looked at the manuals for both of them. I did not get too much information out of them. Isn't there any way to actually find out before plugging in the cords? I am going to try and call dell and see if they know their power cords.

So I contacted Dell and they said that either one of the power cords should be fine. I put the cord with more watts in the psu and everything worked fine. Thank you. I guess you were right.
