HX1000 Sleeving Questions

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi, I am currently paracording my HX1000 and have a few questions..

I've done the sata and molex modular cables which were easy enough, but there's a few things I've been over-thinking about the non modular cable loom.

1/ Are there any looped wires in the 24 pin block?
2/ The 8 pin cable is too short to reach the top of the mobo, do I extend them? or stick with extensions?
3/ The 8 pins x2 for GPU are 6+2 pin connectors - my GPU uses 6 pins now.. do I trim off the extra 2 pins (or stick with extensions)?
4/ Will I have to open up the exit hole in the PSU casing by much to allow for the extra diameter of the braiding?

Thanks for taking the time for reading my n00by questions thumb.gif

1/ Are there any looped wires in the 24 pin block? define looped?

2/ The 8 pin cable is too short to reach the top of the mobo, do I extend them? or stick with extensions? Either way is a good one, however if you extend them try to extend the wire from inside the psu so you dont have a solder joint to sleeve over.

3/ The 8 pins x2 for GPU are 6+2 pin connectors - my GPU uses 6 pins now.. do I trim off the extra 2 pins (or stick with extensions)? Kinda depends on what your upgrade path for the future might be. But again either one is fine.

4/ Will I have to open up the exit hole in the PSU casing by much to allow for the extra diameter of the braiding? Most of the time this answer is yes but there is a few powersupplies out there that already have a sizable hole on them.

Thanks for the reply,

1/ by looped I mean one that comes out of the 24 pin connector and goes back up to the 24 pin connector, ie. doesn't go individual wires from psu to connector.

2 + 3/ looks like a plan to replace the 8 pin and 2x 6 pin cables from psu to required lengths. If I need 8 pin x2 for gpu in the future I can use the unused modular cables.

4/ probably dremel time smile.gif

Can you take a pic of the looped one so can be sure what it is?
