The stripe of the cable probably aligns with the side that says stripe on the PCB.

Thank you! Darrrrrrrrr

"Stripe" on a Eurorack PCB should really be called -12V.
So make sure you have the stripe on the cable going to -12V on your case power distribution board as well.

Be careful!
Please read the ‘power sticky’ in the Eurorack forum.

It’s a stickied thread (always findable) in the euro forum that deals these issues.

The problem with Euro is that the power connections are not infallible; it’s possible to screw up, plug something in wrong, and release the magic smoke! Dead Banana

You’ve got to make sure that the -12 (negative 12 volts) side of the module’s multipin power connector is connected to -12 on the supply’s multipin connector.
The red stripe is just there to help you trace the ribbon connections when building power cables/buss boards or plugging in modules.

Follow these simple X Files tips to ensure success:

TRUST NO ONE Alien

What could go wrong you ask?
Everything:
Module isn’t marked -12 volts anywhere
Red stripe cable is made incorrectly
Power supply has shrouded headers disallowing your cable to seat correctly
Flying bus cable has shrouded headers put on randomly
Some foo on MW tells you to plug it in wrong
Casemaker/power maker blames known universe, won’t admit error
O gee? U wanted a manual with that module?
Dieter’s on vacation
You mistakenly plug it in with the power on
It’s not even a Euro module, but looks exactly like on with dif screw holes and dif power
Evil wizard steals your magnifying glass and lightbulb (yes, I check all modules with a magnifying glass)
Poorly designed power supply toasts yer whole neighbourhood, designer does nothing but insult your sister
Fail to account for any of this, do not pass go, go directly to-> FUUUCCKKKK!!!

It is in the eurorack forum 7 topics down from the very top, the full title of the thread is "The Definitive Connecting Power Thread"

I'd say you should definitely spend some time looking through the stickied topics in the top of the Euro forum for people new to Euro, you'll probably have a lot of your questions answered.

What a rather digital way of plugging in power.

WAIT. STOP.

Put the "Stripe" where it says "Stripe" on the PCB.

BUT WATCH OUT

because Eurorack is run on electricity.

BUT NOT SUPERCOOL AND FASHIONABLE INTERNET TESLA DC ELECTRICITY

just normal old boring Edison AC electricity.

FUUUCCKKKK!!! <<--Don't let this happen to you, because if you don't put the stripe were it says "stripe" it will.
Shledge
It runs on digital power, making this module useless ripoff junk

Tesla was the nutter that that wanted wireless transmission, literal Lightning towers in the centre of cities that zapped all the surrounding buildings and energised them.

If you dont hate on Edison tho you're not cool with the kids.
