Wow... Nice stuff.

What are your thoughts on breaking into the PSU to move the wires around so you can have a straight sleeve?

There's a custom PCB behind there which probably could be reverse engineered to mirror the ATX24 pinouts. See http://www.chiphell.com/article-4711-4.html

That wouldn't be very difficult to do if you have the correct tools to make a custom PCB. All you need to do is make the same PCB with slightly different traces so they go to different pins on the connectors.

Honestly, I can't figure out why Silverstone didn't do this themselves... maybe it was too difficult to make the traces for that pattern?

I wrote a whole rant about it because I was convinced all the other Striders had correct modular design for sleeving nicely. But reading more, especially details from Lutro0, I see that all Striders are like this. I now understand also that they will never change it because the whole series has to stay compatible with the PP05 cable set and the new sleeved cable sets.

Anyway, back on topic

I can relate to you now after spending 4 hrs trying to sleeve the 24-pin. Sleeving is mildly frustrating... sleeving THIS PSU is gonna kill me. I foolishly shortened all the cables to the same length (6"), only to find that because they criss-cross so much, some need to be longer than others. And finding out which ones is totally trial and error. I'm gonna have to call it a night and come back to it later to see if there's a better way to do this. Soooo bummed as I thought I was close to finished. sad-smiley-002.gif .

Check WiSK's thread. Basically for some unknown reason, Silverstone didn't arrange their PSU pin-outs to correspond with the mobo pinouts. So after spending hours upon hours to sleeve, you're still left with a rat's nest of cables that don't look pretty and aren't easy to work with. Doing something like the below is impossible w/this PSU.

A bit nerdy solution, but I ended up making an excel sheet to show where each wire should connect and calculate how long each wire needed to be. PM me if you want a copy.

Are you kidding, man? That would be awesome! thumb.gif

Thanks everyone for watching... I promise there'll be another update soon...

Lookin forward to it. Been feindin' for a little scratch build action
post #130 of 816
Is my head working right..... ?

If you remove the 24 pin socket from the pcb of the psu and solder it on the opposite side of the PCB do the pinouts then match ?

Not that it's possible I guess, but it would explain the "brain fade" of the design. If they kept the 24 pin tidy, the add-ons would matter less, IMHO.

Tired, grumpy.
