hmmm This is my primary rig so it is really a tough call for me frown.gif

This is sort of relevant, since it has to do with my CS build haha.

Spent some time sleeving my PCI-E power cables tonight. I had to buy a soldering iron to fix the double cables on the ST45SF-G haha. Ah well, it never hurts to have a soldering iron lying around, especially in this hobby.

It turned out pretty good I think. There are a few imperfections but I can hide them well enough! thumb.gif MDPC Titanium MKII, white and orange!

Aww shucks not even for a fellow canuck? Oh well I have my own methods of sleeving that I hope will work. Is there a custom length your making them? Does any one recall the lengths SLE made all his cables? I'm on my phone and can't find out =

SECOND EDIT: Didn't realize Godzilla size was so big.... BUT OH WELL tongue.gif

I believe his 24-pin is around six or seven inches, but the cables are all different lengths.

I didn't cut my PCI-E cables down, I don't think I'll need to with the way I plan to route them.

I also sleeved my CPU power cables, but didn't shorten them either. Worse case I'll hide them somewhere, or not. They're not that ugly once they're all sleeved and everything.

If I have to shorten some cables later on, then so be it. I don't mind practicing, and they only get better every time I do them.

I ran across this while working on something else today... might come in handy.

It goes: Cable (number of wires) - length in inches

24-pin mobo (25x) - 8”
8-pin EPS (8x) - 9”
PCIE/GPU (12x) - 12”
Fans (3x) - 6"
3>1 fan splitter (4x) - 6"
Power switch (2x) - 15"
F audio (2x) - 15"
HD LED (1x) - 12"
Sata/IDE power (10x) - 16”
Sata (2x) - 18"
Pump/LED power (2x) - 6"
4>1 custom splitter for pump & LEDs (5x) - 6"
Pump power (1x) - 6"
Pump PWM (1x) - 6"
LEDs (3x) - 12"
ASRock antenna (2x) - 9"

That's what I used to order sleeve QTYs. Note that on the 24-pin mobo harness, because the pin-out is not straight across from PSU to mobo, individual wire lengths need to vary. Check out WiSK's thread for more on that. Unfortunately I don't have good numbers for individual wires as I originally cut them all to 6", which was too short, and had to redo many of them. 8" is my best guess for average wire length.

Edit: been talking offline with airplaneman and here's some more info based on that...

This image shows you the route a shortened 24-pin harness will take from the PSU to the mobo:

*Ninja quote* You could just run stock cables but you'll have a little more clutter to deal with. Sleeving & making cables is pretty fun though... if you don't mind a singed fingertip or two. wink.gif

Edit: corrected the image for more accurate ATX24 placement

Can anyone send me a link or recommend a cheap crimping tool that wont be too much pain to use? I have no problem spending the time to make my own cables, as i am sure it is totally worth it for this build, but paying 60-100 bucks for a decent crimping tool that i may not ever use again is an extra cost i would rather avoid :O

Here's how I did it for my SG05 and my FT03-mini, it's easily adaptable to Compact Splash.



Kyle, if you can make some measurements for me, I can post the exact lengths needed for the ATX24 (for motherboards where the ATX connector is on the 'front' edge of the board behind the ram). I need the following:
  • The height of the connector on the PSU, starting from the bottom of the ATX24 connector on PSU, down to the surface of the motherboard; 114mm
  • How far the PSU connector is further back than the MB connector; 60mm
  • How far the PSU connector is to the left of the MB connector, left edge to left edge; 35mm

Making short modular cables on the Strider series means you have to criss-cross some of the wires. Luckily you can shuffle wires of same voltage around to minimise this problem. So the best way to connect the pins from PSU to M/B is as follows. Top row on the chart is the top row of the ATX24 connector as you look at it installed in the case. So the top left pin #24 on the PSU-side, goes to pin 15 on the MB-side. Next pin #23 PSU-side, goes to pin 4 MB-side. You'll notice that pins 17 18 19 and pins 5 6 7 stay in the middle and don't need to be crossed over at all.


Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
This chart represents the PSU and MB connectors. At the top is the connector as if you are looking at the PSU, imagine the connector clip on the top. At the bottom is the connector as if you are looking at the motherboard with the ram nearest you, the connector clip is towards you. So on the PSU side, the top left pin is 24, top right is 13, the second row has pins 12 to 1. On the MB side the pins are reversed: top row is pins 1-12, second row is 13-24.

Now the numbers in the chart. On the PSU-side they show which wires go where. For example, the blue pin has the number 14, so it goes to pin 14 on the motherboard side. You can see this one is also blue. The number shown on the MB side is the length. So e.g. when wiring that 'blue' wire, you first cut 212mm length, attach PSU-side to pin 14 and MB-side to pin 14. Or e.g. for pin 23 PSU-side, you'd see it goes to pin 4 MB-side, which shows 181mm. And so on.

Note: those lengths are only valid for ST45SF-G with fan faced down and Asus P8Z77-I motherboard. Let me know if you need lengths for other motherboards.
