Seems the new ones for seasonic are just pcie 8pins.

Quick question. I'm doing the heatshrinkless method on my CPU 8-Pin, following Lutr0's guide, when I was burning the heatshrink along with the sleeving at the crimp, I noticed that I've burnt (it's kinda black...) the internal wire at the crimp. Here's a picture to describe what I'm talking about:



The crimp is a bit short and shows a bit of the wire, and so when I was lighting the heatshrink+sleeving at the crimp, the wire got a bit black (from the lighter) and a bit of the sides as well. Did I just mess up the wire in anyway (or rather burn it)? I don't want my motherboard/PSU blowing up cause I damaged some of the wire frown.gif

Thanks!

Hi guys. I am in a bit of a dilemma. I have an Antec 850 HCP. Good solid unit working fine for a while now. I have sleeved the 8 Pin EPS and 24 pin as well a whole lot of sata and molex connectors.

Now the problem with the PSU is that the PCIE cables are two sets to a single cable.



^^^That is someone else's image from OCN, but the circle is around the cables in question.

Well to come to the point, I dont want to sleeve that, as I am not sure what the final outcome will look like.

Now unluckily even the modular PCIE cables are the same. So I decided that instead it would be better off to use the extra CPU 8 Pin eps cables, remove the connector at the other end and fix the PCIE 8 Pin connectoes, keeping a close look at 12V and ground. Turns out that the Antec uses 10 pin connector at the PSU end for both the PCIE and EPS.

Now, this is the important part. The PCIE uses 5 ground and 3 12V. The EPS uses 4 ground and 4 12V. On the PSU side, the PCIE uses 4 pins (one cable split into 2) and 4 12V, whereas the EPS/PCIE side is normal. So basically the PCIE uses 7 out of the 10 slots in the PSU side connector and the EPS uses 8 out of ten.

I hope I have not lost you guys yet.

Now I am confused how to wire this. I basically need one more ground on the PSU side, using the EPS connecter...anyway to figure out which is 12 V and which is the ground without killing my unit?

When in doubt mav use a multi meter. It has saved me many issues.
post #9487 of 14319
I will have to learn that. So just use the black pin in a ground pin and then test? Also do I need to put off the psu?

Reading this review: http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story&reid=215

The EPS cable can be plugged into any red connector, and the hard drive cables can also be plugged into the bottom part (clip side) of the red connectors. The PCIe can also be plugged into EPS red connector. The EPS uses 8 of the 10 pins, the 2 remaining pins are the 3.3v and 5V for the Sata cables. Just use the ESP connector as a reference for the 12V and ground.

You can double check using a multi-meter. Set it to Ohms, connect the black lead to a known ground and poke around with the other while the power supply is off and unplugged. You should get 0 ohms or close to 0 when connecting both leads to ground.

Any suggestions/best method to crimp two wires on the same ATX crimp? The crimping itself is not hard however the insulation on my cables makes them too fat to both fit in the damn plastic connector... I had to "sharpen" some of the insulation with a xacto knife to make them fit in there... it ain't too pretty

Thanks!

Rather than crimp double wires on ATX pins a better way is to splice them. Lutro0 has a guide here. Even if you don't sleeve it heatshrink is enough to protect the splice.
