I did, but it was in the middle of 10 other questions lol. Yes its adjustable.
Sure, I had to leave when chow was ready so I didn't stick around long.
Got a link to the stripper? Mine is heavy and works good but I do slip from time to time.....

Yep. On the Seasonics what you can run into is being unable to "jump start" the psu by shorting "the green wire" to ground. I ran into that when I sleeved mine. Not so important to some people, sometimes more so to water coolers.I finally sorted it out but still can't remember which ones are critical for that function.

Hmm hard to tell but you might clean up the one on the right with an exacto knife or such, just trim a little where it sticks up toward the wing. My eyesight isn't excellent though....

I used the jump start trick already on my seasonic. No problem.

Mine had me baffled for a while. Would work perfectly when plugged into mobo but just couldn't jump it. Wish I could remember exactly which wire had to be in the right spot.

does anyone know if the wires on the sata power cables on the SPH850 can be removed, moved, and then re-inserted without any problems ? the SPH850 has the type of cables that the wire just squeezes in between those 2 knife like prongs to pierce the sleeving - i just dont know if pulling out the wires and moving the connector and then using the same wires will affect the integrity of the wire - what i want to do is make the end connector further away from the others so i can use just the one cable with 4 sata power connectors on it for my dvd drive, 2 hdd and my 1 ssd - and like i said, in order to be able to use just one cable i need to change the position of the connectors - plus i want to try and sleeve that bad boy as well - the nice thing about the SPH850 is all the cables are able to be seperated very easily -
post #257 of 1109
I wouldn't recommend doing that remotehugger thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif
If you removed the connectors, you'd be left with a cable that's got deep cuts in it. If you'd insulate it, you wouldn't be able to sleeve it cleanly anymore...

i see what you mean - what i could do is buy some new wire and just use the connectors couldnt i ? also Furion, i saw an older post from you about the "sense"wires - did you end up just using a thicker wire for those 2 double wires on the sph850 ? i am all set to start sleeving it and was just gonna leave the sense wires off - but if getting a little bit of 14awg wire would be better id rather do that -
post #259 of 1109
Yes you could buy new wire, but you'd have to crimp the contacts on (-> that means buying an adequate crimper + pins).
On the other hand you could use the wires from spare pci-e cables. They already have the right crimps on and should be long enough.

For the double wires I used standard 18AWG electrical wire, same as for all others. You could use 16AWG for them, I don't think that anything thicker would fit into the connectors.
But the same as above, you'd need a crimper + crimps.

i have a decent crimper and pins i got from performance pc's - i actually had to crimp pins on to one side of all my 24 pin cable cuz i broke quite a few of them trting to de-pin it - one side came out fine and all the others have been easy but that one side of the 24 pin gave me fits - i was so mad - lol - but on the plus side I've gotten pretty good at crimping - i would like to find some better pins, wasnt impressed with the ones i got from performance but they worked -
anyway - so you left off the sense wires all together then eh ?
