Cable Sleeving Gallery & Discussion - Page 1372

post #13711 of 13867
I was wondering if anyone could help with few of my questions. I'm guessing it would be fine I want to ask just in case theirs any compatibility issues.

1. I have created a Y cable that has been soldered in the middle. I was wondering if their would be any kind of issues If I have a Molex connector at one end and a Sata connector at the other end? Sata will be powering one of my harddrives & Molex will be powering my Fan controller (AquaComputer).

2. Is their a maximum number of wires That can be solder in a single run? Could I do say 4 cables? PSU Cable -> Soldering Point -> Four wires to Sata or Molex devices.

3. Is their any difference using Silver plated terminals vs gold plated terminals?

1. Some PSUs used to ship stock with cables like that, it won't be a problem so long as you're reasonable in the power you draw over those.

2. There isn't a limit on how many nodes you can run in a single cable, just how much power you can draw from it.

3. Silver is a better conductor, gold corrodes less.

4. There, their.

1) Not an issue

2) Depends on the current draw of the devices compared to max safe current that the pin and the main wire can handle

3) The "silver plated terminals" you mean are actually tin plated. Tin is cheap, gold is expensive. The main difference is that gold is more resistant to insertion cycles (aka will degrade less with a lot of plugging and unplugging). Don't stress too much on gold vs tin cause there's also theoretical disadvantages of using together a gold and a tin-plated terminal.

Thanks, I did notice the PSU cables that came with my PSU are all gold plated.

So I've resleeved my PSU with paracord in the past and was not all that impressed with all the excess length, so I'm upgrading now and did a practice test with Mdpc small extension. Learned alot from the small test, crimping isn't as easy as just crimp it and go. Will be doing full customer length from scratch cables for the new build but I'm happy with the way these came out still

I can't seem to get any replay in the pin layout thread, I might as well ask here too.

Anyone have a diagram of Six Pin layout for PCiE(GPU) to 8 pin (PSU side)(EVGA T2 1600)? I can't seem to find a proper diagram online. It's been awhile since I did a six pin version, I just don't recall where each wire goes & what wire is double crimped.
