Yes, pin 20 is no longer part of the ATX specification. If it's not connected inside the PSU you could add a cable to make the 24 pin connector neater. I just do a dummy splice on pin 20 to pin 8 i.e. I sleeve the wire, nip off the end of the ATX pin and heatshrink it to the outside of the sleeved wire on pin 8.

Yes, one on the 24 pin side is empty, but on my PSU, theres 10+18 pins at the PSU side and 23 at the mobo side.

quick question: was about to order some paracord from ftw PC and found out that precut heatstrink x100 is out of stock, do they usually get stock in pretty fast? or should i just order it by the foot?

FTW's paracord is great quality, but you will hate their heatshrink as it gets gummy/sticky and discolors when it is heated moderately. I would look into an alternate provider for the heatshrink. I have linked a decent and very cheap source for by the foot in my FAQ.

Otherwise if you choose to purchase it just know that others have had issues when single sleeving with it. I never like to say bad things about a company and FTW does do its best to provide for the modder in many different areas, but it does lack in some.

thanks bro, oh and by the way, i enjoy your videos, i'm sure they will come in really handy when i get to finally place my order.. ill look around for some heatstrink, whats your take on FTW's tool kit? i really don't wanna re-crimp wires unless i break one so that tool wouldn't be used, are there other kits that you may prefer? i'm looking to buy some tools anyways, because i've just started passing out business cards to my locals for computer repair/modding and get tired of running over to my dads/brothers house to borrow a tool. i'm not so worried about power tools at this minute because id rather borrow them until i can buy top quality, any modding/repair tools that are a must. sorry about this being off topic and all, hopefully yall will forgive me.

i may look into getting heatstrink from nils because id prefer precut, even though 4ft for .64 isnt bad, if im reading correctly. if you have any recommendations.

EDIT: nevermind i just found your tool list, your the man..

Yes, at least mine is and I assume the 24 pin (motherboard) side is always the same. The psu side varies.

What I did today is order a new ATX cable from Seasonics' supplier as well as the 24, 10 & 18 pin connectors. I have almost destroyed my originals removing these d@#$ pins, lol.
This way I will make up my own wiring+ have a known good cable, since I was in a hurry and never made a pinout diagram. Let that be a lesson for me. The ATX was only $10 and the 3 connectors $2 each.

Just for reference Antron Electronics makes Seasonics stuff, at least cables, here in the US. Ordering is very easy once you contact them, which if you destroy something like I did you will know where to get replacement or extra cables (any of them) for Seasonic psu's.

Started sleeving my PSU, SATA cables & fans yesterday.
Here's a pic of the SATA cables, all done with MDPC-X:

600

The fans also look nice, but the PSU (CM-600 Silent ProM) is getting on my nerves. I only did the two PCI-E (6+2pin) cables till now and it took me like 3 hours or so. The pins were just so hard to get out, even with a tool. The best way to get em out was with a really thin & small flat screwdriver, bending the little wings back inside. Also had some pins which had two cables in em and they just wouldn't fit when the sleeving was done, even with all the tips from Lutro0 in his videos.

Gonna go back at it again later today, hopefully I won't get mad and break stuff biggrin.gif

Those 2 in 1 aren't worth trying to crimp on one pin. Follow that guide someone posted a page or two back and just splice the wire where it won't be seen.
I tried to flip this where it's looking straight on but it kept twisting on me.The shrink is actually even length.
