    If they are actually rated at 10A, and they are genuine, you'll be fine using them. Otherwise, you are looking for IEC C13 10A Mains cables, or Mains couplers, depending on who you speak to :)

    What is the problem here?
    It looks like a standard pc power cables.

    They will work for anything.
    Yes usually servers come with a thicker cables. But regular pc cables will work too providing you are not running 24/7/365.
    If this an always on machines I would run then with what you have but look for a proper server grade cables to Repalce.

    You can set all up and run it with this. But for allways on setup regular thin cables might get hot. So do what you need now but plan to search for a proper server grade cables.
