Burritos are B7
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!
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:Originally Posted by cravinmild
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.
Nice job!Originally Posted by Demented

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.

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".
Yeah, I've heard that as well.Originally Posted by Demented
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.
Most likely an even better crimper! Awesome!Originally Posted by 47 Knucklehead

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.
I've ordered a sleeve tool from Lutro0, and hopefully it will be here soon.
It's their top line, and it's Sea Sonic, there is no such possiblity it's not comparable to Kingwin lazer..Originally Posted by dipanzan
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?

lol, said the same thing too. My first one ( recived it DOA) was not sealedt. The seconded one came the same way, no wrapper or tape over the tabs to get into the box.
Thanks guys. Was just worried as I was told some jackass took my package (even though it CLEARLY has my damn name on itOriginally Posted by Zantrill
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.
You sir have my undivided attentionOriginally Posted by Big Elf
I'll join the club with my Platinum 1000
Still working on redoing the sleeving. The dark blue sleeve will be replaced.
