Corsairs AX860 Series Sleeving Tips

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I've been sleeving my AX860 PSU and have ran into some issues, while doing some research I have noticed that not only myself, but multiple users have had roadblocks.

The first roadblock is finding the pin out to the 24 pin connector. Corsair does not release the pin out for this connector, however the OEM Seasonic does. If you look up Seasonic platinum 860 v2 24pin pin out you will find the correct image.

Also, sleeving this PSU cables are slightly different then others. I am working on a video and will show it soon. Let me know if you have questions.

If that's the case then the pin-outs will also match the AX750 and AX850 in the Repository. I'll add it to the list, thank you.

If you mean that the cables have dual wires then that's also covered in Lutro0s video guide

. Also, I was referring to the location in which yo place the heatshrink for it to fit in. The recommended location by LutroO is too high up the wire and will not fit into the slot, it bunches the heatshrink up and pushes it back.

Oh wait, I see what you are saying my mistake. you are right. The 860 will match the others.

That's funny because the pin-outs match the 24 pin connector for the SeaSonic P860 (V1 andV2). I'll have to recheck them. Was writing while you were posting.

Are you fitting the sleeved wires with cold or warm heatshrink? Cold heatshrink can be a pig to insert. Also if you're not using the MDPC-X heatshrink other makes can be quite a bit thicker.

why wouldn't ALL 24 pin ever made be the same since it's a set ATX standard? at least on the board side, not sure if AXs are modular or not.

I'm using heatshrink provided from Lutro0s website. i do not recall the type it is.

It is all modular, the 24 pin connector is split when it connects into the PSU into 2 different pieces. One contains 8 pins one contains 16 pins.

That could explain it, it's thicker walled than MDPC-X. If you use that and particularly with thicker wire it can be difficult to get in the connector, one of the reasons why I do heatshrinkless instead.

Our 1/4th heatshrink is mainly used for heatshrinkless applications.

However our 3/16 hs http://lutro0-customs.com/products/3-16th-inch-3-1-ratio-heatshrink-4ft is what I use for Heatshrink Style.

Also I use my gauging tool to measure it right. (mainly using the second or third notch as the first notch is for MDPC sleeve and shrink)

The spot on the pin is the same for all heatshrink applications - however you need to make sure that the sleeve is melted down and in the right spot so that it fits in right. Most of the time I sacrifice the first piece of heatshrink to melt the sleeve down and then I use the second piece to fit into the connector. Also the shrink needs to be sightly warm to fit into the connector properly. Another factor to check is that the sleeve is tight, if its bunched up even a little where you melt it - it will be a struggle.

Just to clarify there is a different spot for the heatshrink on the HS method and the HSless method.

Also heatshrinkless might be a good idea to look into. But HS sleeving takes a while and it does have a learning curve to it.
