Frequently Asked Sleeving Questions - Page 30

post #291 of 1109
I recently bought 400 foot, white, black and blue wire for $26.55 from a guy on Ebay I buy wire from. Free shipping. But for where your at, maybe you got a good price.
This guy sells 100 foot sections, any color and you can mix colors with 200 foot, 400 foot orders. It's not on spools or anything, just loose wire coiled up.

Did you check the diameter? tongue.gif

A lot of them have insulation that is too thick. Before checking I bought some cable in 20m length and turned out it's 2.5mm so now I need to get rid of it somehow. ;\

These kind of things I honestly believe should be bought locally. It's not a desert out here. Some stuff is a lot cheaper than in Europe. smile.gif

Btw, I think the FAQ section lacks a bit info about wires. It needs some emphasizing.

Yeah, I've ordered wire from this guy before and used it. There is no excess insulation, and the pins crimp just fine. I've never actually measured the OD of the wire, but as long as it works there's no problem.
This is white and black sleeving, btw. It looks off because the monitor is in the background shining on it.

The wire has landed:

Absolutely different than the cable I had before. Looks perfect. 50m in Black and 20m in White. smile.gif

I used exactly the same white cable for my build. It's a little bit thin and not 100% white, so you will want to stretch your sleeving pretty hard.

man, i am so disappointed - i just sleeved my sph850 - and the video card doesnt work with my sleeved cables - if i unplug the sleeved ones and plug in the extra cables it works fine - i sleeved the 6 pin just as it was but had to make 2 split wires for the 6 pin to 8 pin cable - i thought i did it rite but apparently not - what is the best way to try and figure out whats wrong with my sleeved cables ?
post #297 of 1109
maybe if you post some pictures it'll help figuring out what's wrong.

ok - but im not sure what pics to post - i have figured out that it is definitely my 6 pin to 8 pin that i sleeved cuz if i leave my 6 pin to 6 pin that i sleeved plugged in and then plug in the 6 pin to 8 pin that i didnt sleeve it works fine - so i just need to figure out what i did wrong sleeving my 6 pin to 8 pin - what pics or info should i post for help with this ?

I'm guessing the sleeved cables that you did, eh ? Those seem to be the problem, both ends and the cable runs themselves. Someone may be able to help out, you never know.

I think I can already guess what you did wrong. The 2 extra pins from 6pin pci-e to 8pin pci-e are 2*ground. I guess you've taken 1 +12V and 1 ground.
