Debating whether to sleeve myself for my build later this year or to order from somewhere like Ensourced...

The LC crimp tool being $50 makes ordering some extensions seems worth it. :s

Although cost is certainly a factor, I think it's more a matter of the satisfaction you get from doing it yourself. Also, I paid $27 for the tool.

If you are only ever going to sleeve one rig, then maybe.

I've had the crimper for years now and done countless PSUs. Also vital for sleeving fans, leds, watercooling pumps, anything with Dupont pins. Only PC-related pins it can't crimp are USB3 and the micro-PWM pins used on GPUs.

Here, something that extensions can't offer - fan wires sleeved and crimped together to make a Y-splitter

Can i see the other end of that 8+6?

ok. I've the EVGA 850GS, thankfully no resistors/capacitors installed on the 24pin cable. just one double wire..

Now for the 8+6 PCI-E Cable.. PSU end is 8pin connector Delivering 8 Cables to a 6+2 Pin PCI-E connector that are daisy chained to 6 +2 pin Connector. which leaves me with two options.

1- Sleeve as is which will look auwful.
2- Make the cable from scratch and Y split them from the PSU end to dual connectors. "which means i'll have to buy cables, crimper, connectors" stuff i currently may not be able to afford.
3- Sleeve 4 PCI-E cables and ditch the daisy chaining which i'm not sure how to do.
4- OCN gives me a solution i don't see.


Thanks guys

@Ramzinho It sounds like the daisy chaining is just a simple one-to-one replica of the PCIe power socket, which is not a good idea for a high end system anyway. Ideally you want to run independant cables to each socket to distribute the current across more wires.

What about building four extensions? Do you have four of these 'daisy chain' PCIe cables and the space to hide the original cables and connect extensions to them? That way you could build four extensions. Extensions are great because they are uninversal, rather than being custom tailored to a specific PSU. Obviously you're going to need wire/sleeve/crimper/pins but you'll get such a good feeling building them yourself, plus the tools to do the next set for dirt cheap!

Thanks guys

not sure how the GS is in regards to how the cables are done but EVGA finished their G2/P2 indivudually sleeved cables in this way:

- the 6+8 pin cables are finished with a split at the VGA end of the cable
- the 8 pin is actually just direct 8 pin cables, but whether or not you finish yours of like that is dependent on how many PCI-e connectors you have on the PSU side.

From a quick look at some pictures of the 850gs I can see that there are 4-5 available connections for pci-e on the PSU side thus I would simply make each and every cable a direct pin to pin.
