Sleeving a SilverStone Strider Gold 1200W PSU

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, I have the above PSU (SST-ST1200-G) and have started sleeving the 24-pin cable with paracord.

I freed the PSU-side connector and have sleeved the wires, but have only just realised that the wires will have to cross at some point in the run in order to end up in the right pins on the MB-side.

Is that right? How does everyone else do this and make it look tidy?

A simple solution would be to make sure the wires are uncrossed where visible, and just have them cross behind the motherboard plate or somewhere that isn't visible.

Another option that I really like the look of is using wire saddles. modDIY has some decent examples if you scroll down the page a bit. There may be other good examples out there, this was just the first that came to mind. And I can't speak for the quality of their wire saddles, but most mod shops sell them.

Hope that helps!

Haha, I just realised that first picture on Moddiy is ripped from MDPC - I know because I "borrowed" it myself once and LRT told me off biggrin.gif

But they cropped and rotated it, and slapped their badge on it, so they own it now, right? smile.gif

Anyway, here's a fantastic example from this build:


None of the cables are super-meticulously routed; some cross others, but they're clean enough and look great!

Awesome, thanks for the pointers! Glad to know it's not just me.

I have the ST1000-P and sleeved everything up - some wires do cross on mine and there's a set of two wires at the PSU end that connect to a single pin on the MB side. Some of the original wires crossed more than needed though - so long as you have the correct voltage at the MB connector, you should be good to go. I used my multimeter to check all the voltages before I powered it up...

Heh, those cables are a bit cleaner than mine, but still, not bad for a first go at custom cables and sleeving - but you can see how the PSU end is a bit of a mess...

Just making custom sata power cables. It got 100% more fun when I realised my wire-strippers looked a bit like a T-Rex.


RAAAAAAWWWWWRRRR

SDBolts, what did you use as cable spacers?
