003.JPG 563k .JPG file 004.JPG 569k .JPG file Since we don't have a section for custom cables and these cables are for a power supply I decided this is the best place to post.I am having a terrible time with bad crimps (other peoples bad crimps).A failure like this cost me a power supply (melted the cpu connector.Looking for someone who knows how to crimp.450
Here are two more looking right a the terminal stuck in the connector

There is the 'Artisans' section which includes Lutro0's sleeving but that's either to buy assembled cables or for guidance on how to do it yourself.

If you paid to have that done I'd suggest asking for your money back. Although it's difficult to tell from the picture it doesn't look as though it was crimped at all and the stripped bare wire section is too long, it should be around 3mm. Cables would have been better if they'd been straitened before sleeving too.

If the CPU connector melted it's possible that the cable wasn't at least AWG16 specification or the pins were inserted in the wrong connectors.

Edit: I don't straighten my cables but crimp the pins in the right position to use the bend to help them 'flow' better:

575

Edit, Sorry, was tired. I meant 18AWG.

I bought them off a guy here on 0CN who bought them off the person that made them (EVGA forum member). About the melting,two grounds on a 24-pin extension I had made failed and this caused an over amp condition on one of the pins in the 8-pin cpu power cable.It melted the power supply connector (just enough so it would not plug back in,no damage to motherboard).That example in the picture is a PCIe,overall it looked good but under just a bit of inspection that cable came free.I have a PM in to Lutr0.He is not really active but he said he will take a look:thumb:

Perhaps these people do not have the correct crimp tools.No need to name names as I am sure they wanted to do quality work,it just did not work out.One of the firms is a major parts supplier to this forum (that kind of rules out the "no tools" theory).

Well as elf said just by looking at the pic I cant tell much without looking at the actual crimp myself. There is alot that goes into a quality extension. Some people sadly just buy them and sleeve and resell which ends up being cheaply mass produced cables which most of the time are poor quality.

By the looks it would seem he used a frozencpu or a perfpc crimper which does not bite the wire and hold onto it. 18awg or 16awg does not really matter, 18awg wire with the right specs will work in all power supplies. Its more all about how cleanly the crimp was done.

I can say just by looking at it that they were poorly made, and I mean no offense to whoever made them.

Sadly I dont know how you will get your money back from second hand goods. But if there is anything I can do to help I will.

OK you have reversed the paypal charges but have not heard from you.WHERE are the cables I sent.I tried to make it right and ask you send them back and I would refund the money.I have not received my cables back but you have had your money back since March 28th.
