do color and order of wires matter?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
i have a corsair AX850 and the problem with the sleeving im attemptint to do is that they dont line up well

you will have say a 6 pin look great about half way down but then the wires wrap around each other and braid almost because they dont line up with the pins on the other end

the corsair AX850 is black but every other psu has multi-color wires so my question is

if i line up the wires so that the sleeving looks better, does this matter?

or will i have to keep the same jumbled look

Nope

As long as you keep the red as a red and black as black, you are fine

Just make sure the right wires end up where they are suppose to be you could do whatever you wanted basically.

but thats my question


does it matter where the wire goes?

imagine a fully modular psu

take the 2 6pin PCI-E connector

the wires do not end up in a straight line if you pull the wire straight


can i straighten the wires? this means that the holes i pull a wire from will not be where the wire ends up

They have to go back in the same spot they came out of. The 12v has to go into the 12v and the same with the others. When I sleeved mine, I messed up a couple of wires and put them in the wrong slots and the computer wouldnt turn on. Once i figured out where I messed up, I put them back in the spots they are supposed to be and it powered up no problem.

But, if you sleeve you shouldn't be seeing the individual wires or am I missing something?

On one end yeah but they wires are going to have to cross over each other one way or the other. I left the lined up side on the end of the cable that plugs into the motherboard since you can see it. The other end is on the bottom of my case way in the back so you cant see it.

yes, you're missing individual wire sleeving versus bulk sleeving.

Ahhhh.... gotcha! That is true. Then you will always have some sort of cross over along the way I guess.
