Hi 47 Knucklehead, welcome to the club! For your question on the sleeving, talk to Demented as he is sleeving his own and probably could tell you where to go. Hope he can help!

when i first got my 1000w P i looked into sleeving it but its abit of a nightmare whe way the wires are set up. Two on the 24pin cross and also again with the 8pin pcie. You will need to splice sleeving/wires (there was a thread started in the psu section regarding the 1000P and it had the wiring diagram). I pretty much gave up the idea once i seen it was not a reg psu sleeving job. The psu side of the clips are also propiatory and not universal. Someone had suggest i may be easier to order another full set of cables and then send them off to a pro. The cost of a whole new set was $40 if i remember correctly.

While I will still have to make double wires for my 24pin, the PCIe one was easy for me, since I don't need the +2. Making your own wires allows much more control over cable management and placement. It costs a bit more to get all the gear you need to do it, but it really isn't hard. I just made this last night:<br><br><a class="bbcode_url H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/920069/width/600/height/338/flags/"><img alt="338" class="bbcode_img lightbox-enabled" data-id="920069" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/920069/width/600/height/338" style="width:600px;height:338px;"></a><br><br>
It is something that one is either into and up for the challenge, or one is not. I didn't think I was, but I am proving myself wrong, and loving it. <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/smile.gif">

Nice job!<br><br>
Yeah, I think I'll start by doing the PCI-e cables that go to my video card. While the standard ones work, the one thing that drives me nuts is that the 6+2 on my video looks ugly because my video card has an 8-pin and a 6-pin socket and with the 2 6+2 sockets, I have these 2 wires just hanging off into space. So aside from going with individual sleeves to looks (not to mention doing a color scheme ... I have red, black, blue, and white material ready to go, including matching colored heat shrink), my main objective is to get rid of that "connector to no where". <img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/biggrin.gif">

Thanks!<br><br>
If you make your own wires, I definitely suggest getting the MDPC-X crimper. While I have not used the other ones, I have heard bad things. Having used the MDPC-X crimper, I can solidly say that is is one well built tool. Works just as intended, makes strong secure crimps, and it's all black. <img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/biggrin.gif">

Yeah, I've heard that as well.<br><br>
No, I don't have an MDPC-X crimper, but I do have access to both a Paladin Ratchet Crimper (I've used that for years with great succes) and work has several Molex crimpers from various manufacturers. Getting that nice "W" crimp shouldn't be an issue.<br><br>
I've ordered a sleeve tool from Lutro0, and hopefully it will be here soon.

Most likely an even better crimper! Awesome! <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/smile.gif">

Question - did any of your PSUs have the box sealed when you got it? Just got a call from home saying a package came, but the box for the power supply itself is not sealed.

mine did not come sealed but has had no problems and did not look like anything was messed with. I stated this when I left a review on newegg. Also, thanks for the pic cravinmild. I know you will be happy with her. <img alt="thumb.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/thumb.gif">

Hey guys any news on these 520~760 Platinums? I know I'm asking this a tad too early, but will these units be comparable to the Kingin Lazer Platinums?

It's their top line, and it's Sea Sonic, there is no such possiblity it's not comparable to Kingwin lazer..<br><br>
fanless 560W expected in Q4/2012 or Q1/2013.. 660 and 760 Q3-Q4/2012..

Thanks guys. Was just worried as I was told some jackass took my package (even though it CLEARLY has my damn name on it <img alt="mad.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/mad.gif">), opened it, must have realized what the heck is this thing (I live in a building with mostly old people), put on 2 pathetically small pieces of scotch tape, and put it back downstairs.<br><br>
Zantrill, I'll post up my authentication pic when I get home late tonight. I can't wait to get my hands on this sweet power supply. <img alt="thumb.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/thumb.gif">

Now, can i PLEASE have you wiring diagram for this. How did you do the cross wires on the 24pin and again with the 8 pin pcie.<br><br>
Loves it <img alt="thumb.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/thumb.gif"><br><br>
+reps for that fine work

For the dual wires on the 24 Pin I used <a class="bbcode_url" href="http://www.overclock.net/t/1175308/sleeving-the-beginners-guide/0_20"><b>Ontic's</b></a> excellent splicing guide, step 16 onwards.<br><br>
I originally did the same for the PCI-E cables then decided, that as I'd only ever have 2 graphics cards with a total of 4 connections, to use each of the 3 PCI-E connectors plus the extra PCI-E/EPS connector and wire each cable on each PCI-E connector separately. That means that on the 12 pin PCI-E connector housings at the PSU end I've used either 6 or 8 of the connections.<br><br>
It does mean that there's some blank unused connectors on the PSU end of each PCI-E cable but I then plan to wire those up to create molex connectors that will only supply 12V for the fan controllers, pumps and LED lighting.<br><br>
As you can see, at the moment I've used a lot of the PSU connections. I've made each current 4 pin molex connection with just 2 connectors as it's easier to sleeve those with the heatshrinkless sleeving method.

Welome Big Elf! And very nice cables there! Jelly is the word.<br><br>
Warrior1986, I'll get you added. That will leave 2 more to go to become official! <img alt="thumb.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/thumb.gif">
