I'm not ordering from Moddiy... they're nice, but NOT as good as your own-made cables + mdpc sleeving. Not even close if one's workmanship is good enough.

I did think about going MDPC or using paracord and sleeving them myself but that kinda worries me.

Or is it must to use one of the 4 pcie specific cables supplied? They have the +2 annoyingly come off the edge of the gpu-end connector. frown.gif

I'm fairly sure the connectors won't even plug into each other due to the plastic cover over the pins being different shapes. If they are the same I wouldn't run them but I guess you're free to try, if you do report back with your results please. biggrin.gif

I can use the cpu sockets on the psu with the original cpu plugs, but exchange the other end to 8-pin pcie. I'm just questioning the fact it will work properly.

I know for one, that in the X series, where you get a 2x 12-pin sockets or more, you can alter the original layout so ONE socket splits into dual 6+2, meaning one socket = one entire gpu. Moddiy is doing their cables this way. It also means you can SLI on lower models like X-560 without trouble.

Please don't try this. The 8 pin ATX and 8 Pin PCIE plugs are wired differently. Also the 8 Pin ATX has 4 x 12v and 4 x Ground connectors. The 8 Pin PCIE has 3 x 12V and 5 x Ground connectors. Using them incorrectly lets the magic smoke out out of the component.

Yeh. I wouldn't, but it sparked my interest whatever Seasonic did on these new sockets. smile.gif

Something I noticed on my new unit. I have both X-560 and P-760 and the X-560 is perfectly assembled, without any gaps in the construction of the unit. BUT... can anyone check their units to see if they have an annoying imperfection such as this:

I'm expecting utter perfection from a 200$ psu. My current X-560 is a perfect unit, so it doesn't make sense.

My Platinum-860 has no such issue, but these are different units entirely, unlike the Platinum-860 and 1000 which share most of their parts and are identical on the outside.
post #569 of 1308
Well, compared units should be either p-660 p-760 or p-860 (regular width version).
post #570 of 1308
Yeah, mine is a SS-860XP.
