Hi!

I´m kinda lost here. Could i ask whats your thoughts about this wire?

It´s 1.5mm section and rated 450/750v and 2300W 10A. I think its between 16awg and 14awg. Tried to make some extensions for 4 pin molex, working and crimps well.

Do you think its safe for a corsair ax1200i?

Thank you so much!

common wire is 16AWG so I guess yes

Wire AWG is one aspect. Another is the thickness of the covering. If it is too thick it might be hard to crimp and sleeve.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

The factory wires on an AX1200i are 18 and 20 gauge I believe.. I replaced all of mine with 16 gauge. Just make sure its not solid core wire and like ruffhi said, the insulation isn't too thick.

16 gauge works nicely with mdpc sleeving imo... heres mine.

Thank you for your answer geort45, ruffhi and kgtuning.

My concern its about the 450/750V 10A thing. It isnt a bit too low for a 1200W PSU? Should i get a higher voltaje able wire?

I have look in a couple sleeving online shops and in one of them sells a 18 awg wire with 1000V 4.5 A at 70ºC. Im a Little confused here.

Im on mobile so please excuse the short reply...
What is our normal voltages? 12,5,3.3 so i wouldn't worry about those high numbers. Current as far as Im concerned is the important part. I think your good with that wire.

450-750V @10A on a single wire looks extremely high. I looked up your cable, that thing ain't a single multistranded WIRE but a CABLE made up of multiple wires.

we must be looking at different wires because i looked his wire up too and its a wire not cable. A wire with a cross section of 1.5mm.. 10 amps is high but do they mean chassis wiring or power transmission?

I think I'm stupid, normal cables for PSU are 18AWG not 16, BTW. Cross section for 18AWG is ~.82mm2 which is HALF of that cable you got.


And yeah I was looking at a cable with almost identical code H07Z1-K (RQ)... I don't see the 10A rating though. I don't imagine thousands of watts through that single wire, I don't think the 450-750V means that the 10A are at those voltages, there's a limit of watts that can be used on a single wire before it gets red hot.

Anyway, 16AWG is perfectly fine regarding of being able to read the specs. Normal PSUs use 18AWG, the included cables on your PSU are probably that or MAYBE a little higher at 16AWG, which means you're OK to use a same gauge cable. The 1200W are meant to be the TOTAL power draw, it doesn't mean a single wire should be able to handle that. A 6-pin power connector is rated for 75W I think and the 8pin at 150W, for example. Your best bet is to check the gauge of your included cables, it could be either the same as your new cables or if it's thinner it's surely 18AWG

But anyway, your 16AWG cable IS PERFECTLY FINE as long as your crimps fit around it, I think some have shorter wings which would pose a problem. Double check that the wings bite very good into the material otherwise you'll have a PITA when trying to pull out wires and you end up with the crimp pin stuck inside the connector
