Need help with sleeving!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey! I'm working on the copper elysium build for a friends of mine and we are starting to sleeve cables. Our PSU is xfx pro 750W.
We started with PCI cables, but they didn't have separate 8- and 6-pin cables but a 8+8 cable, where the other 8-pin was bridged from the other. (the second 8pin was continued from the first one hard to explain without the right words)
also on the motherboard 24 pin, there are weird cables. There are two wires going into one pin in the motherboard end and they go to separate pins the PSU end. There are 3 of these cases on the 24 pin.
Is it ok to use pre-made extensions like these http://www.jimms.fi/tuote/DEL-115D in the 24-pin, as they are easier to sleeve. i don't think that has the cables the same way as they are in the cable that cable with the motherboard.
Also i need 6 and 8 pin extensions, as we found the bridged cables impossible to sleeve. But i couldn't find any 8-pin to 8-pin extensions except pre-sleeved overpriced ones, so would these work with no issues? http://www.jimms.fi/tuote/SSI-62
Also I'm going to use this one for the 8-pin http://www.jimms.fi/tuote/SSI-42

This has caused massive headache for me and I've never worked with a PSU this much, I would like some help.

Here's a pick of the 8pin PCI

It would be worth spending a bit of time working through the Video Sleeving Guides especially Part 10 Double Wire Guide.

You'll get best results if you invest in a crimping tool, pin remover etc. and make up your own cables.

Ah i did not remember those guides.

I wouldn't want to go trough the trouble of making my own extensions because i know nothing of psu cables. But the main question is can i use 24pin extension where pins all have one wire going in when my psu has those dual wire pins

all extension 24 pin cables run as per the mother board NOT the psu outputs, so any extension cable cacan be used to bridge the mother baord and cables from the pus be it 24 pin or gpu cables.

BIG NOTE... dont fit extension cables between PSU and mother board you will fry something!!!!

So using the original cable and extension is ok but i should not fit the extension to the psu? smile.gif

thats correct, all motherboards and gpu's are all wired the same. however PSU's can be wired however the manufacuture wants, thats why you have to pay attention when sleeving that the cables go back in the correct place. so if its too hard, extensions are the go.
