I've read all 85 pages of this thread and no one has asked this question. When i resleeve, instead of making cable extensions for my semi modular psu could i just cut the crimps off and solder on the extra length of cable that i need then recrimp?

That is always a viable option or if you're feeling confident enough you could either desolder the connections to the PSU make custom wires and resolder or cut the wires inside the PSU and solder new lengths with crimps from there. Note the last two options will most likely void a warranty.

Just to clarify for this here noob, heatshrink is the little bit of tubing that goes at the end of the sleeved cable to help it fit into the plug, right?

That is correct, but it's purpose isn't to help it go into the connector, it's purpose is to "clamp" down the end of the sleeving to the wire. Generally fitting heatshrink into a connector is more difficult than the shrinkless counterpart.

You also use heatshrink with the so-called "heatshrinkless" method, just to protect the sleeve from burning while melting it on to the crimp. When using either method: get loads of heatshrink for learning to sleeve. Whatever you think you need, double that and add some smile.gif

May not be the correct thread, but this is where I have been sharing stuff. I have been home sick as a dog today with some sort of virus, but luckily I got in a couple packages today and thought I'd share. Some connectors and another color (yellow) from Nils.thumb.gif



As for the connectors, these are all Phobya brand. The pins are the 'short wing' style, and not what I would use due to the lack of crimp on the insulation of a wire.

I ordered these thinking they were true 4+4 pin (the ones that can be split in half and used in an 8 pin or 4 pin Mother board header). Turns out even though the description says 4+4, they are the standard 8 pin EPS connector. I suppose you could split it in half with a dremel...tongue.gif



Next up, the standard PCIe 8 pin connectors, nothing wrong here. Perfect connectors at a good price.



Last, but not least, 6 pin PCIe connectors, but look at these close. I have been searching everywhere for these, they are the exact match to the AX1200 Peripheral connectors with 3 square up on top row, and 3 'D' s on the bottom row and bought them on a whim hoping that the picture was correct (win). So if you need peripheral connectors for your AX1200, these will work. Phobya calls these 'VGA Power Connector 6Pin male (square)', P/N 82357... I currently know of no other source for this type of connector for the AX1200 peripheral, but there may be other suppliers(?).



OK, I'll be quiet now! biggrin.gif
