Cables Sleeving pin order

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I am beginning to sleeve my 24 pin connector for my power supply. What i noticed is that the individual cable order slots are different in the connector side plugging into the motherboard compared to the connector side when i plug it into the psu. I see people with nice looking parallel straight down cables and I am wondering if I can change the cable order of the connector going into the psu.

I have the ocz 650w zt

It has been done as long as you match the voltages to what the psu side was wired for, however some powersupplies do not like this and will not work if this is done. Your best bet is to keep the original pinout and untangle the wires the best you can.

The perfectly straight cables you see are extensions and is only obtainable with extensions.

Sorry for necro'ing this, but is there some explanation for why this happens, so there is a way to determine if you can or cannot get away with it? After doing some diligence, I was under the impression that it would be ok to re-arrange connectors, given that you match up the voltages as discussed.

My base assumption is that this is a shielding issue, and if so, then I would ask if anyone knows the technical details on which connections can neighbor each other without interference.

It does appear that re-routing of ground wires is a non-issue from what I understand.

If you use Velcro or zipties on the cable, close to the PSU, then you can have the messy and tangled cables there, and from your zipties, end up with a clean look. Its not hard, and zipties are crazy cheap. Goodluck. thumb.gif

Lets see if this (terrible) drawing will help.

Nice Idea pratesh. Thanks for that picasso! hehe. I am still curious if anyone knows the answer to the shielding mystery, or whatever it may be. Cheers!

I can tell you from experience after sleeving two of them, that moving the wiring on a Seasonic platinum 1000w can have consequences. On the first one I moved some wiring around, and although it worked fine plugged into the motherboard, when shorted to turn on the psu to fill my loop it would not start. I can't tell you which wires were the ones that couldn't be moved as it's been a while. Eventually I just went back to the standard wiring scheme and split the double wires as in Lutro0's guide.
Evidently the Seasonic looks to sense a signal on a particular wire or wires. Probably not a deal killer for people not running on water.

Thanks for this info mandrix, since I will be using a separately powered molex solution to power my pumps, I should be ok. Appreciate it!
