I have a Corsair RM1000 PSU for which I am trying to make a cable for; the stock cable goes from an 8-pin EPS (connected to PSU) to a 6+2 PCIe.
The problem? The 6+2 branches off into ANOTHER 6+2. That is, the 2nd 6+2 branches off the first 6+2 (which is connected to the 8-pin EPS). It is difficult to crimp two cables into one terminal.
If I were to make a custom cable for this, is it OK to splice the 2nd 6+2 along the 8-pin to 1st 6+2? Do I have to think about serial or parallel electron flow? How have people in the past done this?
If this is a redundant post I apologize. I have tried to use the search function as well as google and nothing has come up. This is one of the few things I need to do to finish my computer and need guidance!
i've made a similer cable for a client. i dont think there should be any problem splitting it in 2s from the psu connector.
i have a similer cable here http://shakmods.com/shop!/~/product/category=3316061&id=34448254
This is just a 8pin pcie to 2 x 8pin pcie cable, yours should look similer to this but not an extension.
We do cables like this all the time. We tend to use the double wire method on this video:
The reason we do it this way is so the end cables dont look like they have a ton of wires crammed into it. IMO it takes away from the clean look that you are trying to achieve by sleeving, and the connector has a hard time handling all of those crammed wires and tends to bend and break.
