There's a reason why so many people are loyal to Nils. He's a great human being, great business man, and he's always strived to take care of his customers. I wouldn't buy sleeve from anyone else, ever. IF he went out of business tomorrow, I guess I wouldn't ever sleeve my gear again. He's the only one who can be trusted and I refused to go elsewhere.

Where can I get a cheap crimping tool here in Canada? Is ebay a good option?

What do I have to look at when searching for one?

Is this one good ?

Lutro0? Hes my fall back from Nils, especially now that he has teamed up with E22 in the UK it should be really easy for me to get my sleeving kit
post #9225 of 14342
my first efforts here.



2x 6pin pcie and 1 8pin eps in place thumb.gif I'll probably need to remake these at some point because the way the plugs are rotated the inside cables need to be a decent bit shorter than the outside wires to get a nice clean line. I think i'll try sewing them to train them first though.


got burned and sore fingers but it's coming along quite nicely biggrin.gif now to make 3 more 8pins 2 more 6pins and a 24 pin. The SR2 needs looots of cables

Can someone please help me.

Is that a good crimper above? Do I need to buy extra die for it?

I can't comment on that particular crimper...all I am going to say is that you typically get what you pay for when it comes to crimpers. If you want a decent crimper, MDPC or Lutro0 are the way to go...thumb.gif

When sleeving a PSU modular cable (note: NOT an extension, which goes male to female, but a cable for a modular PSU which has male pins on it, thus the cable is female-female), does it really matter to keep exactly the same pin-out? Obviously I'm not talking about mixing 12V with ground wires hehe, but mixing between the 12V cables and between the ground cables. I'm almost sure the answer is "no", but I'm not sure if it's the same for every PSU, in terms that if its one-rail or multi-rail, although I doubt a connector would have more than one rail on it.... well I just wanna know how everyone else does their cables smile.gif

If you place a modular cable on a table, with the 12V wires (1,2,3) facing up, and let's say you want the pin1 on end1 match pin1 on end2, the wire would be in a diagonal, since the connectors face opposite directions:


..|63|....................|14|
[]|52|....................|25|[]
..|41|....................|36|

Right? Same goes for 3,4,6. If I wanted a neater cable with straight wires, 1 should go into 3, 3 into 1, 4 into 6 and 6 into 4. Would that be ok?

So long as the voltages are the same, it doesn't matter. Example would be the silverstone PCIe cables...you can mix the yellow wires up in any order that you want so long as the voltage pinout is the same.

Since I'm an impatient bastard, I'll ask this question here - the same thing is in a different thread, and emailed Lutro0, but this gets more traffic, so hopefully I'll get an answer here...

My VGA cards have two six pin PCI-E connectors. On my custom cables, what would you say is the best way to wire these up? I can think of three options:
  1. Run a separate connection for each plug direct from the PSU. I don't really want to use this option because it will mean 12 extra wires taking up space behind the motherboard tray. (And a bunch of extra work...)
  2. Run a connection for each card and split the connection behind the motherboard tray so 12 wires for each card run out to the card. Again, more wires than I want clogging up the case, but probably easier to do than #3.
  3. Run a single connection from the PSU to the first plug on the card and 'daisy chain' off that plug to the second plug. This is my preferred option from a 'clean cabling' perspective, but the challenge is crimping in 2 wires into the pin and sleeving everything. I've seen some ATX pins that have extra large back 'wings' that can crimp 2 wires without any issues, but am not sure where to get these from. From a sleeving perspective, I think I'd have to use heatshrink on the first connectors due to the two wires coming out of them.
