Mysterious psu cables

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Im working on a build for my friend, the copper elysium, got a build log up. We were sleeving cables the other day and it was the first time for both of us, we noticed that all the pci cables it the psu have two 6+2 pin connectors, the other one bridged from the first one. They were extremely hard to sleeve and we didnt get clean outcome, we decided to use extensions and sleeve them. Should we plug the extensions from seperate pci cables or can we use single one and plug the extensions to the same wire where there are two 6+2 pins, we are using gtx780 which has 8 + 6pin power connection. Also, in the 24 pin, there is one pin where two wires go in and one pin is empty, both in the psu end.
Im not very good with psus, please help me. The psu is xfx pro series 750w gold.

My english vulcabulary is not that wide either, if you didnt understand i can post pics biggrin.gif

Because there were two cables going to some of the pins in the first 6+2 plug, we had to use two heatshrinks to keep the sleeve tight. It was also hard to get the cable back to the pin because the heatshrinks were so thick

I can post picks of it tomorrow if you want, still got the sleeve on the one cable we did smile.gif
