The double wires are sensors to help voltage regulation not to boost output.

You're completely right about the double wires, the fact that they're obviously different gauges is very strange... like the output from the thick wire wasn't sufficient and the second wire is an auxiliary source to bolster output, but only a little bit so they don't need more than 22awg. The smaller gauge is what makes me wonder how important it could possibly be.

You will likely be around 800-850W peak draw, so you still have some overhead before you reach 1000W on the PSU. If you ended up adding a 3rd 290X you'd be pushing 1100W easy.

Agreed that they help voltage regulation, but voltage regulation is dependent on load (draw) so they are inter-related.
post #13 of 66
The voltage regulation is not load dependent so is not specifically inter-related. After saying that the ATX specification only allows for a sense line on the 3.3V VDC line at motherboard loads to monitor voltage drop so the assumption is that it also provides a similar function for the other sense lines.

I guess I always thought voltage regulators help maintain a constant voltage level and that voltage levels can vary with power draw, hence corrections in the voltage regulators take place as the power draw changes leading to load regulation and line regulation ratings for voltage regulators. Perhaps I was mistaken.

Hmm, so assuming the second wire is necessary (since it sounds like it is for vreg purposes) does it matter where the second wire is spliced in? Looking at your setup smithcity it looks like you put it much further back on the wire, which would go a long way to making the connector area look a lot cleaner than it does stock.
post #16 of 66
You can put the splice where you like so if it helps being close to the PSU you can do that. The only thing I'd suggest is having the single wire just long enough to stretch the sleeve enough. I have weak fingers and find anything shorter than about 100mm is a struggle to stretch decently.

Yep, can put it anywhere you like which is why I moved it back. Once you play with the sleeve a bit you'll figure out how long it needs to be (stretched). I suggest Lutro0's method of using superglue with the sleeve at the splice before adding heat shrink. I have some step-by-step pictures of how I did my splicing on my current worklog: http://www.overclock.net/t/1496186/build-log-corsair-900d-tx-61-everything-h2o-cooled#post_22434899, result looks pretty decent.

Great write-up! I'm currently sleeving the cables for this PSU. Regarding the double wires, what method did you use to connect them at the Y? Did you run a single wire to 2 wires, soldering at the join? Or did you do a double wire crimp and sleeve the 2 wires through a single sleeve out to where you made it a Y?

Take a look at the pics in my build log. I have 1 main wire, I then strip the shielding off to expose a small section of the main wire. Next I measure out the proper length for the spliced wire, strip the end, insert it into the exposed section of the main wire, solder, sleeve, heat shrink, finish! If this explication and the pics in my build log arent clear enough let me know and I'll find another helpful pic or two.

That is a perfect explanation! I'll make sure to do the same. I'm certainly glad I just bought a soldering iron and all of the stuff to go with it. I bought it just in case I bought a PSU that would need it. Sure enough... rolleyes.gif +1
