Sleeving a Seasonic Platinum 1000w

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hey so I want to sleeve my Seasonic Platinum 1000w, but the cables are really weird. Just wondering if someone knew how much sleeving (Individual Sleeved) I would need? Thanks in advance.

Just multiply the length of each connector by how many wires for each connector and add them all up. If it's your first time, I'd add a good 20% on top of what you calculate.

I'd guesstimate 60 meters.

If I would have a guess, it would much more be in the area of 80m (presuming that you want to sleeve every cable, not only the ones you use).

Unfortunately its not that easy because Seasonic has split the 24 pin into 2 sections so in actuality there are more than 24 pins.

It istn' more difficult then tongue.gif Instead of multiplying with the number of pins on the hardware side of the cables, you now need to multiply with the number of pins on the psu side, e.g. 28 for the atx cable wink.gif

Sleeving - How much sleeving will I need?
The best and really only way is to measure them yourself or look at the datasheet for your psu. This can be found on the website for the manufactor of your psu or a review site as well.

Now you just have to look at the cable length and then add them up....

Let’s say you have a 24pin cable and the datasheet says it is 520mm long, so:
24x520mm = 12,480 millimeters = 12.48 meters

So for just the 24pin you will need 12.48 meters of sleeving.

And then you continue to do the same for the eps, sata, molex, and pcie cables. (not to mention any other things/cables you want sleeved)
Once you have everything added up you will want to add 10-20% more sleeve to it just in case you mess something up or perhaps forget about something.


Heatshrink - How much heatshrink will I need?
Most places sell precut HS now, so that makes it as simple as adding it up with the rule that you will need 2x pieces of HS per wire.

So you add up all of the wires of your cables/things that you will be sleeving.
I.E. a 24pin cable has 24 pins. So you will need 48 cuts of HS for just the 24pin.

I always add 50-100 more pieces no matter what so you don’t have to settle for a messed up look, even more so if this is your first time sleeving.
If you are using tubing that is not precut, I believe the rule of thumb is to find out how much 20% of your total order of sleeving will be and order that amount in HS.
But again I would choose to try and do the math, for example is you are using 15mm cuts of hs, you would need 30mm of hs per wire, and if you are using 20mm cuts you would need 40mm per wire and so on. Remember to add the equivalent of 50 to 100 extra pieces so you can get a little extra.

Taken from my own faq located on post three of my video sleeving guides thread (link in my sig)

I have sleeved this entire power supply except the 24Pin main board/ 10+18 cable.

I'm finding it near impossible to remove the pins from the main board side and it's incredibly frustrating, and yes I'm using the proper tools and all that jazz.
Does anyone have any suggestions, possibly from someone who has sleeved this cable before?

I just finished mine and I will have to redo a few wires. It has to be one of the hardest PSU's to sleeve. I broke 3 pins pulling on them so hard to get out. I used the tools correctly as well. Some came out better then others. The 3 that broke I spent a half hour on each trying to get them out of the plug alone. It took for ever and I needed a break but I did it.

Sadly this is just how they make this psu. The pins I believe are OEM and specific to just them so they dig a little into the plastic. I have done a few seasonics and I always have cuts on my hand from the connectors from gripping them so hard.

There is no different method for removing them and it just comes with practice and alot of strength. Sometimes people heat up the connector with a blow drier but I have not had this work for me, but it may for you.

The Original Molex Tool and the "push the wire in and then insert tool - then pull out hard" is the best method hands down. The key is to know if the tool is in right and when to stop pulling the cable when it does not comes out with a certain amount of pull. There is a pull threshold were it should come out and if you pass that you will rip the pin out.

Another method is to get a small vice grip and a hair bobby pin and cut the pin so the flat side is in the vice grips and use that to push the pins in on both sides and they will almost fall out then, although sometimes this can break the wings however its a failsafe way to remove the pins.

A way to get rid of the previous terminal, then Sleeving, Crimp Terminals
This method can accelerate the speed of production
