Got some very basic question before I redo my sleeving. Is it best to use normal hook up wire 18AWG or use Pure-Silicone Wire 18AWG.

Additionally when wiring your PSU wires is it okay to just use 16AWFG for all the strands or should I keep to what the manufacturer has done, 16AWG, 18AWG and 24AWG on my AX1200. I do remember seeing someone use 16AWG for all his 16 and 18AWG wires.
I am not willing to spend AU$5.00 per meter for this wire from Australia, not when I can get the same wire from the US for $0.51 such as Hobbyking.com

You don't need pure silicone wire, just regular stranded copper wire. That's what I meant with my previous answer: I'm sure there is plenty of suitable wire available in Australia for much less than $5 per meter and probably also less than $0.51. Just make sure it has 0.75mm2 core or larger, and for MDPC the outside diameter including insulation should be between 1.9mm and 2.3mm for best stretching.

Usual advice about 16 AWG is that it's unnecessary except maybe with an SLI setup where three or four cards are drawing some of the 12V power through the motherboard. But of course there's no harm in using thicker wire if you can find any with outside diameter < 2.3mm.

There seems to be some anomalies with the wire prices in Australia. The same wire that costs $66AUD for 100 Metres in Australia costs me $24AUD in the UK.

Edit: 24/0.2 wire is the metric equivalent of 18AWG.

That's not an anomaly. That wire is made in a factory in Yorkshire. Of course it costs 16 quid in England and $66 if you ship it to Australia.

Locally produced wire will be cheaper.

On the subject of capacitors for the PCI-E cables on Silverstone PSU's - quite a few people (myself included) have left them off when doing custom replacement cables. Although it does depend on which GPU you're running. Maybe on an overclocked or overvolted GTX 680 or Titan it could be worth leaving them in place, but I've noticed no difference or problems with my GTX 660 Ti cards...

I spoke with Joel @ Silverstone support and he said that they're best left at the GPU end of the cable - putting them at the PSU end reduces their effectiveness.

Of course, you've already got them in place, which is the hard part, so might as well leave them there...

Interesting, the label says China.

Alright, a big spool is made in China and shipped from there to Farnell in Leeds, and then Farnell cuts into smaller spools and ships it further smile.gif
