Hello! I want to do custom Cables for my PC Build. Im going to be using the PSU RM650x

Im just confused about what cables i need? cause i dont want to buy cables i dont need.

And its also extremely expensive! Unless you have a good cheap website for other cables.

I really need help to know what cables i need to buy for the PC To work as normal (CustomCables)

The 24 pin ATX, however many 4/8 pin CPU connectors your motherboard has, however many 6/8 pin PCIe connectors your PCIe devices need, however many molex connectors you need for whatever, and however many SATA connectors you need for your SATA powered storage.

I think the hoomans put their builds here?

Why do you hoomans give your builds a name? Here's my build, which I shall call "Do as I Say, Not As I Do" (seriously, don't get this build)

Spoiler

Ryzen 1500X @3,925 GHz

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo + ML120 + NF-F12

MSI B350 Tomahawk Arctic

2x8GB Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000 MHz CL15 (Micron B-die) @2933 MHz

Sapphire Radeon R9 280 Dual-X @1120 MHz / 1450 MHz

120GB 850 Evo

500GB WD Blue

Cooler Master Elite 430

Seasonic Prime Titanium 650W

Logitech G710

Logitech G502/G303

HyperX Cloud

And my laptop, which I shall call "If It's Stupid But It Works" (It can actually play CS:GO at 50 FPS, and Civ V at 25 FPS)

Spoiler

Lenovo Thinkpad L460

Intel Core i3 6100U

4GB (probably) DDR4 2133 MHz

Intel HD Graphics 520 0.3-1.0 GHz

128GB Samsung MZ7LF128HCHP

Corsair M65 Pro RGB (worst mouse I've ever had)

Sennheiser CX 5.00G

And here would be where I would put a picture of me. But apparently, images are not allowed here. So take this instead (*ΦωΦ*)

Yea, what @seon123said.
Also you can also consider using custom cable extension if you can visually hide the original cables.

Don't.  Bad idea.  Horrible idea.  Remove effectiveness of sense wires on 24-pin.  Add resistance with longer conductor.  Add additional point of failure with additional connector.  There are no positives with using extensions unless your PSU isn't modular and you can't swap out the whole cable.

 

Look at the price of an entire kit versus individual cables as sometimes the kits are better value.

 

But for the most part, in 99% of chassis out there, you can only see the 24-pin (and even then, barely), the EPS12V (again, barely) and the PCIe.  You might even get away with just buying nice PCIe cables since you can barely see the other cables (if you do a proper job and route your cables under and/or behind the motherboard.

 

As far as what cables are visible:  A lot depends on what chassis you're going to use, which you have not stated.

Sorry for the late response, it's been a busy few days.

Anyway, what do you mean by that? Your other points I understand and somewhat agree to.

The sense wires take a voltage reading from the load and reports back to the PSU.  If there's a noticeable drop, the PSU can compensate on that rail.  Extension cables don't have sense wires.  So the sense wire on the stock cable only senses the voltage where you plug in the extension, but not all the way to the load.

Awesome, good to learn something new, thanks!

On the expense ...

A) They are a luxury and priced as such. They aren't necessary. You PSU will come with the cables that you need.

B) If you've ever sleeved cables yourself, you'll realize very quickly why they are expensive.
