And the sleeve is secured to the wire much better than with heatshrink. I'm sold. This one is a good 6 or 7 inches shorter than the stock cable also. Cleaner fit.


Five more 8-pin's to go. Then I'll start thinking about the 24-pin. Since I want to have the top PSU automatically start the bottom....I'm going to need to wire a couple of connections together. Plus...I'm going to have the AQ5 wired for a hard shut-off of power...and need to work that connection into here. There are also a few wires that need to be spliced or double pinned/crimped. Since I want the wires on the motherboard side to be clean and straight...I need to do all the work on the PSU side. I'll probably do the splices, 2nd PSU connection and AQ5 connection close to the PSU....into a 24pin connector on the PSU side. Then do an extension that is a straight 24pin to 24pin that wraps around to the motherboard side. That should keep that part looking as clean as possible.

I noticed on the bottom of your 8-pin CPU connector to right your white wire starts out the second wire in and connects on the other 8-pin CPU connector on the very edge, why not have it same on both ends? Reason I'm asking is because I'm sleeving my SeaSonic X-1250 and have notice some wires aren't going in where they came out in respect to both 8-pin connectors...?

That was one of the things that Stren noticed on the new EVGA PSU: straight wires. You'd think someone would have thought it would be a good idea before now...

may be something to do with swapping cables over, as i know corsair does there individually braided cables, Or it could just be some companies like to be a pain in the a&&

Systemlord.....Hope you are having fun sleeving the Seasonic....and you'll have to post some pictures once your done. I don't like that the wires don't all have straight pin to pin connections....but that is the way the AX850 is setup. I meticulously took apart each one of their connectors and mapped which wire on the PSU side went to which hole on the connector. Not only are there lots of wires that change pins on the trip from the PSU to the connector...there are plenty of double wires on one side leading to single wires on the other. I simply duplicated what they had done originally.

Yeah...EVGA did us a favor if all the pin connections are the same on both side. I'll have to check that out if I ever change PSU's.

I've finished all 6 of the 8-pin connections. The PCI-e 8-pins are wired differently than the MB 8-pin connectors. Kind of a pain. On the PSU side, there is a 12 pin connector that splits into two separate 8-pin connectors (16 pins total) for the PCI-e side. So...you have to either crimp a double pin (which is what Corsair did), or splice the wires away from the PSU. I chose the latter, because I wanted the sleeve to meet the connectors cleanly. I would rather have some splice joins a few inches from the connector...than to have a mess right there at the connector. I want one wire to each hole at both connector ends.

So...I have to make 8 of these splices....which are a little more of a challenge to make look nice. I got better as I went along.....





Here is what the 12-pin PSU side of the connector looks like....







And here is what one of the 8-pin PCI-e side of the connector looks like....






And here are some shots in the case. The non-sleeved wires are slowly disappearing.....







I'll probably try some sort of cable sewing method on the cables showing on the MB side of the case once I'm done with everything.....so the pattern stays true. I won't try and continue it around to the PSU side...since the cables trade pin positions on their way to the PSU.
