Definitely making my own. The wires that come with the AX850 are all black. Since some of my sleeving is white...I would have to tape each one of them. That would be a giant PITA. Much easier to snip my own white wire to the size I want and go from there. Also...there are four 2 to 1 wires, where Corsair just sticks two wires in one pin. You can't do the shrinkless method if you're going to stick two wires in one pin....so for these I'm splicing and soldering a join in the middle of the wire, ...so that I only have one piece of sleeve going to the connector...and can do the shrinkless method. Corsair also has two wires that are twisted around each other. Short story...it would be gigantic pain to just sleeve their own wires.
As I'm working on this piece of the 24pin...I'm thinking how much easier PSU manufacturers could make it for enthusiasts...by just making a straight run of 24 pins to 24 pins. No criss-crossing. No twisting. No double wire pins. All these things are design issues being made by people who CLEARLY have never sleeved their PSU.
The extension piece of the 24pin that I've done already looks so nice and neat. It holds its pattern for the entire length. This little short piece I'm working on right now that will plug into the PSU and the extensoin.....is a mess. Wires crossing over each other. Splices. Yuck. But...at least I've kept the messy part of the cable only on the PSU side and its relatively short.

Great thanks for all the details basically easier to make your own cables. Thanks for the tips. Going to stick with the stock cables for now and sleeve over time. since im making my own as suggested I can keep everything plugged up.

Day 5: I am still trying to finish this thread. I have ran out of food 3 days ago, and water is getting scarce. Currently 3:15 Am, of the 15th on December and still no sign of the end to this thread. The torture I have set my eyes to endure is beyond horrific. God Save Us!

Picture progress of last night's work on the remaining portion of the 24pin. I'm back at it this morning. Should finish this little beast of a cord today:

Yes...that one looks to be a pretty sweet way to step up to full frame photography. I almost got the 5D III when I bought the 7D. Would love to go full frame at some point...but the main thing holding me back is that I have several lenses that I love...that would not be compatible. Knowing that at some point I'll probably want to go full frame, I've stopped buying any EFS lenses, but I've still got several I shoot with all the time. My 17-55 2.8 is my main 'walking around' lens, and I also love my 60mm 2.8 macro. I don't shoot with my 10-22mm that often....but it, and the other two mentioned...would all need to be replaced.

But I do have the 70-200 2.8 IS II and a 35mm 1.4 lens that would survive my step up to full frame.
