Help me choose a power supply!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for a new power supply for restarting my old build. Problem is, I have no clue what power supplies are easiest to sleeve. I don't know if any psu's have straight one-to-one pinouts or close to that, but that's mostly what I'm looking for. I'm trying to make a super clean tj07 build and don't want to use extensions or have a bunch of two-to-one pins. Efficiency is only of slight importance, 80+ Gold or higher is always a plus. Fully modular of course smile.gif

Just saw an EVGA 850w psu for sale cheap, you guys know what the pinouts like on this guy?

Thanks for any help yall can provide!

You're in luck, I just emailed EVGA support a couple days ago and was told the pin out's aren't 1:1, like how some Silverstone PSU's are. I've heard some of the higher up Corsair AX/i series are easy to sleeve, as are the RM series, but the RM isn't something I'd recommend. I would however recommend the 850G2, I just got mine today, but someone braver than me will probably take their cables apart to check the pin out. Pre-sleeved cables are coming out, which could help in sleeving. That might be a questionable purchase seeing as you're wanting something to sleeve yourself.

Thanks for the info! thumb.gif
So it's a no-go on the 850 G2, even though I love the look of their PSU's and all my other hardware is EVGA.
You said some Silverstone are 1:1? That sounds like a good solution since they make good power supplies.

Try checking here if you haven't sleeved before or are looking for more information. Good luck on the build. thumb.gif

I've sleeved many times before, but on non-modular psu's and it was a huge pain. I'm looking to make it as clean and easy as possible before I start my next round wink.gif
There's literally a "Easiest psu's to sleeve" section. Not sure how I missed that, thanks for the link. I'd give you a second +rep if I could thumb.gif

I'll probably go with the RM Series now that the FAQ says they have almost zero double wires biggrin.gif

Hi

Silverstone strider series power supplies are 1 to 1. I have one of the 500 watt ones and made my own custom short cables for a mITX chassis. They also make a short cable set PP05 which I originally bought and sleeved, but it was still not short enough. One thing with the Strider 500 watt size though is there is only one 8 pin PCI-E modular connection. So either a jumper 6/8 needs to be used for GPU with a 6 and 8 pin cable or do Like I did and make a double wire one as shown below. All the connections are female ATX pins so it is very easy to work with.
