PSU Sleeving Question

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
so I stripped my 24pin mobo connector and I see that there are a ton of different colors, and there are numbers on the connector from 1-24.

I follow some of the wires from one end to see if they match the corresponding numbers at the other end and some don't. But it is the same color wire that is inside the other end...its a bit confusing.

for ex. on one end(A) connector 1 is orange as I follow the wire it leads to connector 6(B), but if I look at what wire is taking connector 1's place on (B) it is also orange. This goes on and on on different wires never ending at the corresponding number, so they all look twisted.

Is it okay if I just number the connectors on (A) and then just plug them in to the actual corresponding number on the other end (B)?

sorry if its a bit confusing

here is a link that might help you

I would simply suggest that if you have not already removed all the individual wires, that you simply number them up the other end as to which pin they go to on the motherboard end...

Does your PSU manual also state the pinouts for the socket and cable?
if not you might need to find someone else with the same psu and 'borrow' their cable and using a multimeter or a continuity tester, test each pin / to determine the actual layout in case there is some crossover cables

I prefer to do them individually so that there's NO POSSIBLE way for a wire to be put back in the wrong hole. ymmv
