Sleeving modular cables

N3rot0xin

Got a question about sleeving modular psu cables. I got an evga supernova fully modular psu. Going to sleeve it. Question I have is are the cables 1 to 1? As in, pin 1 coming out the psu is pin 1 on the other end? And I'm mainly speaking of the 24 pin. Some of the wires are not going to the same pin, so that's why I'm asking. I assume they're ground wires. But I don't want to resin it and mess it up. They're all black wires btw so I can't go off colors. I don't want sleeves to cross, I've seen cables that are 1 to 1 but those are usually extensions.

I am whatever I am.

best way to deal with the 24 pin in my opinion is to buy a pre sleeved extension cable

Why would you even say that? I'm sleeving my own. I hate when people say "just go buy it" when people say they're doing something on their own. You know how much more that is to "just go buy" presleeved cables? For just the 24 pin it's more then buying 200 feet of paracord(x4 50ft different colors) and the tools to depin. All that can be bought for under $20. Not everyone is lazy and "just goes and buys it". If I wanted to buy them I wouldn't even post.

4 colours might be a bit busy but yes Pins are 1:1.

Well it will only be 3 depending on what color my parts are. But 9 didn't want to be limited when it came time to get parts.

Not all connectors are 1:1 so checking for a pinout diagram, also to note many PSU's have more than one wire going to a single cable so the double wire method may be needed for a clean sleeve job. Most of this should be under the PSU Pinout and Diagrams and Sleeving section of the linked FAQ post.

Well, i think what i'll have to do is do single wire per sleeve, but leave the last 1/2 or 1/4 inch bare(the PSU end) and have the cross happen there. My psu's modular cables are both male ended, so no matter what i'll do there will be a cross of wires. I'm not 100% sure, but it looks like once move a couple wires (they're both grounds) i think i should be able to just cross vertically at the ends (pin 24 and 12 for example).  I cant say its the same for all PSUs, but on mine the pins are 1 to 1(source: http://forums.evga.com/NEX-750G-24-PIN-DIAGRAM-m2090108.aspx). So i'll be able to get some pretty clean cables fairly easily. From the factory i guess some were crossed to different pins but still carried same voltage. When I redo it it will be 1:1.

Having cables cross over is not a problem just the 24 pin cable will have a bit of a mess in the middle, but it should still allow you to sleeve all the way to both ends of the cables. I would suggest to probe your connections to ensure they are 1:1 just in case to ensure no mistakes, and to do that after sleeving on the connector side.

Lol you posted a question I gave a solution. It cost me like £8 to get a guy to make me a custom sleeve extension for my 24 pin, which is less than $20. If you want to do it yourself that's fair enough, but don't give me attitude for trying to help :(

 

To avoid the bulge, just make an extension cable which can be on show and as all the pins are 1:1 with no crossovers, it will avoid the bulge
