Frequently Asked Sleeving Questions - Page 25

post #241 of 1109
@Lutro0,
I checked out your live sleeving last night but couldn't get you to answer my question about your wire stripper. Was wondering if that stripper lets you preset the strip length? I couldn't see it very well.
Enjoyed the music though....... biggrin.gif

That could get ugly... so I should stick to exactly what the pinning was originally?

Yup. Always a safe bet.

I did, but it was in the middle of 10 other questions lol. Yes its adjustable.

the 2 wires will definitely fit into the paracord i just didnt know if by doing this i would lose what ever function those little wires are for or any integrity -


so splicing the wires wont cause it lose any functionality that the wires provide ? for some reason im afraid that if the wires arent crimped inside the pins it would be like they arent there - and if i remove them does anyone know what that will do ? does anyone know what the purpose of those smaller wires are ?

Im assuming they are monitoring voltage wires. I know on my seasonic, this is there function. They "tell" the psu to up the voltage if it drops below a recommended rating.

Normally the double wires on a power supply are there to monitor the voltage at the end of the cable. They are called "sense" wires. This way the unit can adjust its output depending on how much voltage drop happened over the cable.

On this PSU however (the SPH 850W) the double wires start and end together in the same positions. Either this is a fake sensing to pretend a functionality that the psu doesn't even have, OR it's there to stabilize the voltages a tiny bit. The overall diameter of a double wire is bigger than the diameter of a single wire (makes sense, huh? wink.gif ). Therefore the resistance is lower and the voltage doesn't drop that fast when current is going through. But we're talking about very small range of additional voltage drop.

Either way, your psu will still work properly, whether you remove the additional wire or not. thumb.gif

thats what i was thinking too - or maybe they had something to do with the "hybrid" part of the p/s, like to tell it when the fan needs to be on or off - but i should probably not remove them then eh ? and as far as splicing like in my pic, would this be acceptable and it would still work the same as if they were crimped at the pin ?

ok - i get it - makes "sense" (lol) - i do overclock but not an extreme amount so i dont think removing them is gonna hurt me any - and it will be a lot less hassle to remove them than to splice and solder them - thank you for all your input - biggrin.gif

My only problem is that, in one case, two red wires come out of one hole but don't terminate in the same hole on the end; rather they split like a Y. I was thinking I would sleeve both arms of the Y and just heatshrink where they join up at the pin, maybe add a little adhesive of some sort to make sure they stay.

The other double-wire is just that, a double-wire. Hopefully I can stretch the MDPC-X over it because I don't have the tools necessary to take the pins of and re-crimp. Maybe I'll just put the 24-pin on hold and do something simple...

ok, how does this look ? this was after 6 practice tries - i think it looks pretty good and it looks like its small enough to fit into the connector - any input is greatly appreciated -

post #250 of 1109
Didn't know where else to put it.

I have been sleeving for a while now using all of Lutro0s videos as a guide. Today I tried my first heatshrinkless sleeving. Again using the video by Dr. L.
I nailed it the very first try. And just wanted to say (again) thank you for taking your time to make those videos Dr. L. You're a huge help making it easy for anyone to sleeve wires. You're freakin' ace thumb.gif
