post #801 of 1109

Just put a wire in it

 

There's no pin on the male headers so there's nothing for it to mess up

I checked the PSU and the MOBO and they both have a male pin where the missing one is on the modular 24 pin cable.
Would making that connection cause issue?
post #803 of 1109

Dunno, i wasn't expecting there to be one, but i just checked my mobo and it also has the pin. Do you have a Meter you can test the pin with? 

It shouldn't have any signal or voltage coming out of it, but it couldn't hurt to check it with a multimeter

 

Place the the black prong on one of the Ground Pins and the red prong on the "Empty Pin"

Hey guys, is any one able to tell me the difference between the MDPC sleeving and the Teleios Sleeving @Lutro0 sells, and how see through is Lutro0's Teleios?

Cheers
post #805 of 1109
I just used the Teleios here in this picture. I had to put white electrical tape on the wires because they are black. If you look at the wire second from the left you will see where I did not get the tape all the way to the top of the wire.

Edit: Also I did not tape the purple wires. They are still black underneath.

Most of the time the psu still has connections for this wire and adding it doesnt cause any issues, however if you are having issues I would remove this to start the troubleshooting and then go back through your pinout.

This is all answered in the FAQ, but the short answer Teleios is made to be more dense then MDPC.

If you use black teleios on a white wire it will cover the wire completely if sleeved right.

Guys thanks for the advice so far. Ive just sorted out my Cart on Lutro0's and its come in @ around $230 which im stoked with. So I thought b4 I order my gear I would have a close look @ my PSU and see what im dealing with. I have the Corsair HX850. I want to sleeve the 4 attached cables (24pin, CPU & 2x PCIE) and it didnt take me long to hit a snag. At a closer inspection the 24pin has a handfull of wires that are a smaller diameter in size than the majority. I need to admit here that my confidence is easily broken and I immediately thought the job was too hard and I wont bother doing it. But I have been so excited for so long to do this after some consideration I decided I had 2 options- Either sleeve the cables as they are (either upto the PSU or into the PSU- I hadnt decided yet) or to open up the PSU and replace the smaller wires with wires to match the other existing ones. So after a nights sleep I decided to open up my PSU and see if unsoldering and re-soldering new wires was a viable option for me(I basically have no experience with soldering but was planning to start learning) Unfortunately after a look in there I do not believe removing these wires is an option for me (mainly because im scared I will stuff it up and access to some of the wires is very limited)

Now to my question.........

I have heard Lutro0 say that having 2 different sized wires sleeved will look funny, what would any of the Old Pros on here recommend? Is replacing the wires like I mentioned even possible and if so would u suggest this course, or just sleeve what is already in place and have it look a bit funny?

Also is this the best place to post this sort of question?

Thanks in advance
Mat

Don't get discouraged it was my first time as well and I have had a lot of fun with it. My 24 pin had 2 different sizes also and after sleeving I couldn't honestly tell you which ones they are. You should just give it a try and see how it looks to you.

Hi


trying to do my first sleeving job ,, but the problem is that i have seasonic X-850 which from what i heard and see is pain to deal with :\

i'm having Red Betfinex extension right now but i'm not satisfied at all beside that i want to do somthing about the mess in the back of the case

i have couple of worries about my PSU especially the PCI-E cables which looks strange and i don't know what to do with them ! ( see the attached photo )




i have GTX780ti ( reference ) so i'm using 8 pin + 6 Pin ,, so what i should do with these extension hanging from the card connector ?! i don't know whats the point from them in the first place ! can i just take them away ?! if anyone have a guide or reference for such thing please let me know how

i just want clean and simple 8 pin + 6 pin showing in my case !

also i'm planning to get all my stuff from Lutro0 store ,, so is the ( LC Custom Molex Extractor ) enough to do all the job for the MOB + PCI + 4 pin + 3 pin fans ?!

thanks in advance

Those are there to give extra functionality like if you needed 2 6pins you can just plug in the 2 6pin parts and same with 2 8pins.

You may clean these up anyway you want - my suggestion is that you depin each one cable at a time and use a flush cutter and cut off only the part you dont want as close to the crimp as possible. PLEASE make sure you dont cut off something you need - but it is straight forward. Also make sure that you put them back in the same spots.

I hope that helps.
