[Tutorial] Sleeving EVGA SuperNOVA 1300 G2 With Capacitors and "Stealth" Lacing - Page 7

The images reflect the cable, which is stock; it came like that out of the box from EVGA (minus some heatshrink and sleeving).
Hmm, I didn't realize that was the stock cable. Seems odd that it would be at the gpu end.

Yeah, it was wrapped/hidden under some heatshrink. The ones for the MB are at the PSU side of the connector.

I want to say that it should remain at the #1 & #5 pin. The reasoning there, is that the capacitor is meant to deliver extra power when the GPU calls for it, but the PSU can't supply it. So, that signal/extra power would be at the GPU side. It would be supplied, to what I can only imagine, is the main power (as it's the first +12v in the connection) input on the GPU.

There is a reason it is located on Pin #1 + #5 on a EPS 8Pin; those two pins are extra ground wires for the pulse modulation sensing from the GPU back to itself to draw more voltage per pin without heavy 16AWG (EVGA in G2 models use 18AWG-22AWG). This is the reason why a while back you would hear GPU plugs referred to as 6+2 pin connectors and not 4+4 EPS pin connectors (Your CPU 8 pin connection).

What GPU are you planning on running? How many connections?

I am curious as well to improve upon how the PSU can deliver power, so please let me know if you have any other information. Also, your photo was very nice to see and thank you! I honestly never opened my 1300G2's wiring, and I went by using a pure voltmeter for all testing.

So a bit of a revival here, but seems very appropriate to the thread :
I am going to be wiring up my G3 650W. All its really going to be running is a GPU (via Alienware GPU Amp), fans and LEDs Not even close to its limit.
With that said, im not going to bother with the capacitors... Done smile.gif

My question is though, comes in at the dual wire pins.
Whats stopping me from connecting them up on the PSU end instead of the Motherboard end?
That way you would keep the few dual cables basically invisible from the rest of the sleeving, and in fact i would not sleeve them, just to maintain their low profile status.
Seeing as i am going to at most be using 50% of the PSU i cannot see this being a problem but would appreciate some input on this as I could be completely wrong rolleyes.gif
Thanks

It really doesn't matter if the double wires are spliced together 1mm from the PSU or at the motherboard, the only real thing to consider is that the wire gauge needs to be properly sized compared to these 2 wires. As for the resistors; they are not needed on the G2, P2, T2 line, but I have no clue on how that is compared with the G3. I still haven't gotten around to finishing up my sleeving for my P2, but I did get some high quality resistors (Panasonic FC series) just because I want to have the best possible result that I can make while still looking good. Just as you can splice cables closer to the PSU and you can always add the resistors there as well, it doesn't hurt to make it as good as you can if you have the opportunity to do so. That said for the 2 series the resistors were only really needed at above 1000w so I doubt you will need them, though again I have no clue how the G3 is compared to the G2/P2/T2.

Thank you very much. I thought as much. Yes the double wires on my unit are 22AWG as opposed to the standard 18AWG but i am upgrading them to 16 AWG but will possibly leave the doubles as 22AWG to keep them as hidden as possible smile.gif
I do believe my unit has caps but i am not too concerned about them for my power usage and considering im using thicker wires rolleyes.gif
