One of the drawbacks of paracord is it doesn't rain nearly as well as PET, but it'll still turn our nicely if you make sure you stretch it over the wire tightly. Good luck with sleeving! It can be an addictive hobby lol.

Well so far today I've managed to shorten my stock psu cables for my gpus. It's a pain to reuse molex pins. I should've just ordered some, but I was anxious to get started. Just waiting for my 550 paracord to come in now. I ordered neon green, charcoal gray, and black. I see you like green too! thumb.gif

Make sure to trim up the solder on the double wires and put hs over them thumb.gif

Thanks for the tip, I ended up redoing the solder on two of the wires, it was too bulky once I put some heat shrink.

Any suggestions for the SATA power connectors? I got everything done, except for those.

Great guides BTW, I came across your channel on YouTube.

All done, except for the SATA Power connectors. Gotta plan it out and order more sleeve.

Nice work. Can't wait for my sleeving to get here! wheee.gif

Thanks! If you read the FAQ stickied on this forum it shows you great examples of this cable. Its pretty straight forward. If your psu allows it I try to make single connections for sata power using the crimp style sata connetors. It is more cables but they look cleaner IMO.

I agree, single connections look cleaner. My psu (probably most psus) has the single cables for multiple connections that I do not like. It just doesn't tidy up too good. I'm modifying my psu cables to make them single connections and then sleeving them. smile.gif

Can anybody let me know if splicing any of these to 18AWG or Lutro's thin diameter 16AWG could negatively affect the PSU performance? It's an Antec HCP-1300 Platinum. Multiple 12v rails.

Double 18AWG Ground
Double 18AWG Ground
Double 18AWG 12v
Triple 22AWG 12v
16AWG + 24AWG 5V
18AWG + 24AWG Ground
18AWG + 24AWG 3.3V

Thanks. It's mostly the Triple 12v crimp that I'm a little nervous about. But maybe there's no reason to be....

Yeah, since I only need 3 sata power connectors, I'm just going to split the harness into 3. Thanks guys!

I highly doubt it, both 16 and 18AWG wires should handle the same current. You should be just fine.
