Hello OC. I've got a very simple question that I'm sure someone will be able to answer for me. I finished my first watercooling build but it wouldn't POST. After troubleshooting I know for a fact it's my GPU's cables, as the stock ones will POST and BOOT.

My PSU has two 8pin to 6+6+2 pin which I use to power my GPUs.

What I did was create four 8pin to 6pins and left two pins empty on the PSU side. I've come to the conclusion that I'm supplying too much power but I was wondering how I should go about sleeving this?

Extensions are not an option as my cables are bright red (yuck) in a black and white build. I am using the EVGA Supernova 1000p2.

thanks in advance for your help and below are the pictures:

As long as sleeving is done correctly and wires match 12V to 12V etc, it should work. Power is not PUSHED it's PULLED so you can't provide more power than the device requires

I guess more of what I'm asking is, how was the way I set up my custom cables incorrect? The difference is that my computer turns on with only two of the provided 6pin + 6+2pin and doesn't turn on with four 6pins. I've seen that the 6pin is supposed to have a 5V and 3.3V which I have read is to aid the power supply in measuring voltage and clearly I have not done that. I guess I'm also surprised that I can power a GPU off of a single 6pin + 6+2pin cable.

You're doing something weird... the PSU does have some 6-pin conenctors which include 5V and 3.3V but these are for the Molex and Sata connectors (the molex connectors will not have the 3.3V though), there are OTHER 6-pins intended ONLY for CPUs and GPUs which ALL have only 12V and Ground. The 6 pin end has a line of 12V and a line of Ground, the CPU ends have the 12V in the opposite edge, the 8-pin have the same pins as the 6-pin plus a column of ground.

You seem to be having too much luck without burning something because I'm afraid you're doing something wrong my friend! Please disconnect that thing... send pictures of your PSU where are you plugging the ORIGINAL 8-pin cables and where are you plugging the custom made ones.

Double check your custom made cables. As stated your PSU has probably dedicated connectors for CPUs and GPUs, because they only use 12V and ground. The difference is the rows will be inverted. I haven't checked your particular PSU, if it has connectors ONLY for CPU, others ONLY for GPUs and others ONLY for peripherals. Mine shares the CPU-GPU connectors only changing the cable.

OK I'm checking your PSU, it has separated connectors for VGA, CPU, even SATA and Peripherals are separated (but I bet they're the same).

What occurs to me is your cables would be missing the wrong two pins... hmmm

Please post photos:

-Photo of original cable, show the end that plugs into the PSU, alongside your custom cable, showing the end that goes to the PSU
-Same thing but with the opposite end of the cables

I posted photos in my original post. It shows both ends of both cables, the original being red. The last photo is the pinout that someone has made for the PSU on OC.net. I also already mentioned and showed in the photo that the cable is missing two pins.

I understand that the PSU side is all 12V, but according to that pinout the 6pin side has a 3.3V and 5V which I had read was for the PSU to monitor voltage. As for placement of my cables, I am not using extensions so I am replacing the red cable with my two custom cables.

PCIe dont use EVER 5V nor 3.3V, period, that pinout is for the sata and peripheral connectors

Ah, I see. Either way I figured since the PSU was all 12V I would just make separate 8 pins and just leave out the 2 pins from the connector. The 6+6+2 pin looks like both 6pins are one to one which is why I did it that way.

I didn't want to cut open the original cables but I'm tempted now. However, they are glued under the shrink wrap and I'm not sure I can even cut through it.

edit: geort45, I see what I've done wrong now. The last pinout I showed has the 12V in pins 1, 2, and 3. On half of connectors I have them in pins 4, 3, and 2. I will make the change. Thanks for helping me read the pinout. thumb.gif

I got it working fine by hiding some of the excess behind the motherboard tray, but I think that much would be more for a big arc. Maybe a 24-pin would need more, given they tend be more of an arc?

There is some mathematics that helps here. I chatted about it in my log but the short answer is to reduce the inner wire length by 1/4" per 90° turn required. So ... if you want your extension to go through 270° ... reduce the inner wire length by 3/4".

The size of the arc is not important (the maths shows that the arc measurement cancels out).
