Those mod/smart connectors from Aquatuning are not the best, but work okay and have a good solid black colour, not translucent. http://www.aquatuning.es/product_info.php/language/es/info/p8480_mod-smart-ATX-Power-Connector-24Pin-plug---black.html

Can't help you with AX1200i pinout, I'm afraid.

Great, the cable spects is what I needed.
Of course I´ll be using white cable instead of covering with white tape the black cables thumb.gif

No problem with the pin out if all the cables are the same diameter, I´ll ask some friend for a voltimeter and try to find out myself (If I get it right I´ll be posting the pin out here)

Any idea of where can I find the 10 (2x5) and 14 (2x7) pin conectors for the PSU?
And a better cuality brand for the conectors? (don´t care if they are more expensive)

The only one I know who sells those brand-specific modular connectors is Eric @ moddiy.com. He's in Hong Kong and the shipping is a fair bit, but the products are cheap.

Maybe someone else knows another source for Europe.

Hi! I've got some simple sleeving questions:
-What kind of sleeving do You use? 4mm or 3mm?
-What do You think about using 16AWG cables for sleeving?
-Have You ever used Phobya/Sunbeamtech extractors? Now I have Phobya extractor, and it's soft, I'm worried I'll break it. Is it worth to buy original extractor? Are pins going out more easily?
-When I'm, doing heatshrinkless method with the cheapest hestshrink (Lutro0 guide) and for example white sleeve, won't it leave some black traces (I hope You know what i mean) on the sleeving?
Thanks!

Thank you very much thumb.gif just ordered there all the conectors I couldn´t find on MDPC-X
60$ shipping included to Spain for all the 16 AX1200i psu conectors, 2x 4+4 eps, 6x 6+2 GPU and 20+4 mobo conectors
Not as cheap as I thought it will be, but anyway happy to found everything in the same site and pay the shipping only once rolleyes.gif

Thanks!

Use 550lb paracord or MDPC small not sure on exact diameters. (I think 4mm) I used the Phobya ones for sleeving my power supply and when I was on the last cable one of the pins on the ATX pin remover snapped off so I wouldn't recommend it, the Molex brand is supposed to be the best.

I would recommend 18AWG as 16AWG is supposedly a bit too big and can be a pain to fit through sleeve.

What sleeve are you using? If you are using paracord then you don't need the heatshrink you can just roll it with your fingers, if this doesn't work for you then I am afraid the only solution is to get some white heatshrink instead.

Hope this helps!

A friend let me a voltmeter and I have the pinouts for the AX1200I cables.
I realized some of them (5 in the 24 pin cable) are thiner than the others.

So "0,75mm2 core with 2-2,2mm diameter insulation" for the thick ones but.. what kind of cable do I need for the thin ones?

Paracord or MDPC tends to be the options of choice right now. Paracord is cheap while MDPC costs a little more, read that faq lots of info to help you out.

-What do You think about using 16AWG cables for sleeving?
Regular 16awg sleeving almost always has a diam of over .25 or in otherwords once you add the sleeve its hard to fit into the connector.
I have produced a custom 16awg cable just for heatshrinkstyle (link in sig) if you want to check it out.
But one of the bigger problems with 16awg is that you need to take your time as there is alot more strands then 18awg.

-Have You ever used Phobya/Sunbeamtech extractors? Now I have Phobya extractor, and it's soft, I'm worried I'll break it. Is it worth to buy original extractor? Are pins going out more easily?
Front hours of testing and honestly buying every single tool out there stick to the original molex extractor, it will last you while making the job easier.

-When I'm, doing heatshrinkless method with the cheapest hestshrink (Lutro0 guide) and for example white sleeve, won't it leave some black traces (I hope You know what i mean) on the sleeving?
Depends on the heatshrink you use, I sell the same stuff I use in my shop now, but it would depend on the heatshrinks heat tolerance and how it reacts to it and how its dyed. However, this should not matter because you are just shrinking the part that goes into the pin so you wouldnt see it anyhow.

Also a quick tip if you use paracord to sleeve with there is no need for heatshrink. Check out the video I made on it.

You can use 18awg for all of it. Ignore the fact that some are smaller.

Anyone know if you can actually buy the cable for SATA power?
I tried taking it apart and those 2 metal things that hold them in ripped one of the cables frown.gif

I'm talking about the SATA power cable you get your your PSU btw

You can use a molex to SATA adapter like the one found here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812200061

Yea but i still would not be able to use the SATA cable which i want to.
I found on that moddiy site that they sell a whole cable, might just buy that...
