Pin out Corsair AX 860

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello.

I want to build cables from zero, for an ax 860 corsair psu.

Well, I want to keep the original cables of the corsair without any modification.. That´s the problem

How I keep the original way of the cables.. I can´t know what is the order of the cables.. and my question is:

Is there any place to find out the pin-out of the corsair ax 860?

The 24-pin Cable I see on Internet:

http://www.moddiy.com/product_images/uploaded_images/ax750-850-24-pin-belegung.jpg

But the other ones, like the 8-pin cpu, 6-pin pcie and the 6-pin pcie sata, i didn´t find nothing...






and the other doubt is:

What the AWG recommendation for building the cables? AWG 16 or AWG 18? As I said before, it´s for motherboard cables, sata, etc..




And finally, How i want to build new cables...

Is there any limitation to attach more than 4 hard drives in the same sata cable? I want to add, at least, 6-7 hard drives in the same cable.








Thanks so much for your help

Unless somebody comes up with the pinout you'll have to document it yourself. Although this is an old site the photo's will help identify which wire is which for each type of connector. Bear in mind that the colours in the photo match up to voltages as follows:

Black = Ground
Yellow = 12v
Red = 5v
Orange = 3.3v

One thing to watch out for is that 8 pin PCI-E connector has 3 x 12v wires and 5 x Ground wires. You can double check all of the above using a multi-meter.

Although 18AWG is sufficient for all the other cables if you have access to 16AWG then I'd suggest using that for the cable set that has 7 or more hard drives. Although 18AWG should be sufficient for that number of drives when they're in use it may be borderline for the startup voltage.

Thanks so much Big Elf.

In Corsair forum, they told me, it isn´t a public information the pin out... so I think i´m gonna modify the original cables...

Where do you recommend buy the multi meter? I see several on Ebay but i don´t know if they are enough effectives...

Thanks so much smile.gif
