The PWM D5 runs at 60% when not connected to PWM. What other components are in the loop?
The pins will have different markings on them although they are hard to read (with my dodgy eyesight I can't see them). I can tell you that the modDIY pins I tried some time ago were rubbish but they didn't have the long wings. Have you ever been able to successfully crimp pins with the tool. The test crimps that were supplied with the tool should indicate it was tested and produces perfect crimps. I'm really surprised with that wire diameter. I use 2.3mm and yours looks...
Is that 2mm wire strand diameter? The wire with insulation looks closer to 2.8-3.0mm. I've had another thought, are those Molex pins or copies? I've had problems with copy pins deforming in the past.
Unfortunately the photo isn't focused enough so I can't see what's happening to the crimp. I can see that the wire is very thick, what diameter is it? Also the wire isn't pushed into the pin enough, the insulation should be butting against the conductor (wire) crimp. The crimp pressure setting is normally at the lowest on the MDPC-X tool. Can you do some more photos of the crimp showing the problem and close ups of the tools' dies?
Either the wire you're using is too thick or your MDPC-X tool needs the dies adjusting.
If you're going to get an SN-28B rather than a decent too then it really needs modding to avoid crushing the wire. Although I modded my own Sleeve Modding sells one that's been adjusted to crimp better although I haven't tried it.
Looking forward to this.
It's more of a medium fan speed rad but it has reasonable performance at slow fan speeds. Push/Pull would net good results.
18AWG is perfectly fine for the uses I listed above. Lutro0 use 16AWG because it trains better than 18AWG not because it's actually needed. Edit: To repeat what has been discussed before: The Intel Power Supply Design Guide for Desktop Platform Form Factors version 1.3 (April 2013) recommends 18AWG It's not the wire that is the amperage bottleneck, it's the pins. Since the MiniFit Jr pins are only rated for 7-8 amps, there is in principle no electrical advantage to...
18AWG wire is fine for the 24 Pin, 8 pin EPS, and 6 & 8 Pin PCI-E connectors. Providing you don't overload the SATA and 4 pin Auxiliary cables it will also be fine for those too.
