Cable Sleeving Gallery & Discussion - Page 1002

post #10011 of 14329
hello friend's,

i'm new in here, and i wanna to ask you some thing's about sleeving.

i have a corsair vx450w psu, and bought 2 sets of paracord, one black and other gold, my psu only have one 6pin pci-e connector, and i'm actually using a molex to 6pin connetor to power the GTX 660TI, but, i wanna to use 2 cables that have only 4pin molex and 1 cable that have only power sata connectors from psu to make one 6pin pci-e or one 6+2pin pci-e from the psu, because this connector needs three 12v, and three ground cables.

can i do the modifications without problem and after that sleeve my psu???

I already search the web, and realized that my psu could power 2 gtx 660 in sli, overload test said that the psu operates stable giving 570W, so i would insert more three 6pin pci-e connector to psu

My computer system:

MB Asrock Z77 Extreme 4
CPU i5 3570K 4.4Ghz
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo
8GB DDR3 Corsair Dominator 1866Mhz
GTX 660TI Gigabyte OC
60GB SSD Corsair GT series
500GB Seagate HD
Case Commander MS-I
1 140mm fan
3 120mm fan

Thank's

From what I understand:
- You have 1 x 6 pin PCI-e cable, BUT you are using a molex to 6 pin PCI-e connector to power your 660TI.
- you want to have 2 molex cables and 1 sata cable. Why? I don't understand that.
I also don't understand the part where you say
Quote:
to make one 6pin pci-e or one 6+2pin pci-e from the psu, because this connector needs three 12v, and three ground cables.
I'm sorry, but I don't really understand what you mean.

my psu isn't modular and has:
2 cables with 3 4pin molex connectors each
2 cables with 3 power sata connectors each
1 cable with one 6pin pci-e

my vga needs two 6pin pci-e

i'm not using the 2 cables with the molexes, except to connect the adapter two 4pin molex to one 6pin pci-e for the vga, an 1 cable with satas, so i want to remove the molexes and sata conectors from these 3 cables and made with the 12v and ground rails of these cables one 6pin pci-e, or one 6+2pin pci-e, or yet two 6pin pci-e connectors before i sleeving them.

is it possible???

sorry about my english, i'm brazilian

The better way of doing it would be to splice additional wires onto the existing PCI-E cable.

The problem with using the cables for the Molex/Auxiliary or the SATA is that they only have one 12V feed on the cable and it would probably be pushing it to splice 2 extra 12V wires onto one of them. You could take a 12V feed from different cables but I suspect it would end up both looking and being messy.

Edit: I suspect the overload of 570W is in bursts and not sustained load which is fine if that's the way you'd use it but I wouldn't rely on that if you're going to be folding with it. Also don't forget that if you make up a 6+2 Pin cable that you will need 5 x Ground wires in addition to the 3 x 12V wires.

I'll do it in the existing pci-e like you said, maybe adding a 6+2pin pci-e connector.

each cable has one 12v rail, then, if i disasemble three cables i will have three 12v rails and 6 grounds rails ok? so i can make another cable with one 6+2pin pci-e and one 6pin pci-e like i'll have after i double wire like lutroO guide? right?

After this work i'll want to have 2 cables with one 6+2pin pci-e connector and one 6pin pci-e connector each one, 4 connectors to power 2 gtx660ti.

i use this review to make a decision to put 2 gtx660ti in sli, apparently the psu sustains 570W with 40A on 12v rail if i really understand.

Just to clarify. The overload test had the PSU shutting down after 30 seconds with 596W and they don't state how long they ran it with 570W. I think they were trying to prove it wouldn't blow up with the increased load rather than suggesting it was usable.

I've been told by SeaSonic that my 1000W PSU is capable of 1250W but only in brief bursts and not sustained.

After saying that; the TDP of the 660 Ti is only 150W so at stock settings unlikely to trouble a quality 450W PSU

i think, maybe i'm wrong, that my psu could handle a system with a 660ti in sli mode, because the tdp is 150w, two will demand 300w, plus 110w needed for the i5 3570k 4.4Ghz, 2x 4GB DDR3, one SSD, one 500GB HD, a cpu cooler and a half dozen of fans

I'm very happy for the help, i will post my work as soon as finish it.

Thank's a lot Big Elf

So I just did a very bad thing and could use some help. While trying to sleeve the very last cable of my HX 750 (the thin green) one I accidentally pulled to hard and the wire came out, but the connection is still in the header (black part). Any help to fix this would be greatly appreciated.

Pull the pin and crimp a new one on. Or solder that one back on.

Thank you for the fast response, but any suggestions for getting the pin out?
