Wire for SATA Power - Page 2

post #11 of 30
I can make some if you want to send me a spare connector that goes into the power supply. I have pins and wire. Just need you to pick up the connectors you want.

Use an Exacto knife and separate the wires with their casing. Then use the punch-down plug and it will splice the wire for you. It looks fine... I've done it.

Yes, this describes it perfectly.

Thanks but I'm going to do this custom for my case. I'm going to run two lines. One for the optical drives. I'll only have at most two optical drives but I'll do all 5 bays anyway just in case I want to move drives around. The second will be for the HDD bays and I'll do all 5 for that too even though I'll probably only run 2-3 HDDs. Again, it's so I can move around drives if I want.

The goal I'm going for is for it to be custom for the Sniper Black. I assume Corsair makes their lines so they will fit any case which makes sense. Unfortunately, on drives that are close together, you get weird bowing. My custom wiring will be such that there will be a slight bow but nothing too extreme. You'll see when I get done.

I'm also going to sleeve the wires. That's my only complaint with the HX750. They took the time to sleeve the 24 pin and the 8pin non modular lines but they didn't do some of the other cables.

I'm not a huge fan of this idea. It might work for you but I don't like the idea of separating the fused lines. For the 20 bucks it will cost me for wire, pins and a crimper, I might as well do it myself from scratch.

...the lines aren't fused.

The casing just is... and you can pull them apart without issue.


You can do it for $1 and in 3 mins.... I'll post a pic soon.

I understand what you're saying but I might as well just do it my custom way. I'm not looking to save money. I'm looking to *create*

So you will be doing something similar to this with all the connectors at the correct lengths away from the power supply? That sounds awesome, and should be very clean when done.

Ok, if you want a clean look... use punch-down SATA plugs. They can sit flush instead of having to stick out.

Yes. That's pretty much it. I won't make them that taut though. I wish I could but from my experience doing wire management on boats, taught wires just never come out good. You need a little wiggle room in case you want to unhook a drive without ripping up the insulation.

+1 on the punch-down SATA connectors.

Here is a custom cable I made for my PSU using 18AWG GXL. I spaced the connectors to fit the drive bay spacing.

Yes, I will be using punch-downs. Mine will be a bit larger with one for each drive bay, will be fully sleeved and will be all black wires.
