Yes, you can add more power cords to your power supply, and it can take a lot of your power load if they are from a good company, but you can't do it by yourself. You will need to take it to a mechanic. One thing you can do is check your existing wires and connect the new wire yourself. Thanks.

Hi Harold,

 

If you mean adding a power cable to your computer’s power supply, then what you need is a power supply cable splitter.

See the image below:

This type of cable is available from your local computer store. It’s called a MOLEX 4 Pin power supply splitter cable.

 

As a precaution though, I would suggest you confirm if your power supply can accommodate any additional load. What kind of component are you planning to add to your computer which requires you to add a power cable? Overloading your computer’s power supply has adverse effects. It may cause your computer to crash or it may render the components unusable.

 

I suggest installing a power supply calculator such as Extreme Power supply calculator to verify how much power you need and to find out if your current power supply can handle an additional device.
