It would be pretty hard to screw up wiring the pin outs, don't you just have to make a straight line between the connector on the PSU and the output connector for that spot?

What is your budget/country for your new PC?

 

what monitor resolution/refresh rate?

 

What games or other software do you need to run?

pin out

All connectors that connect to your MB are standard pinouts.

The prob lies with the connectors to the PSU.

They are proprietary and are different among manufacturers and are even different among models.

Right but if i make sure the cable on the device goes into the same hole on the psu side ( straight line ) shouldn't it be fine or am i still wrong?

I may be wrong.

to be honest getting the pinout right is pretty basic, if you feel like it's going to go wrong you probably should stay away from making your own cables.

 

on that note, just organised working, note taking, and properly marking your wires while assembling makes chance for error pretty low.

 

and if you want to be absolutely sure.. get a cheapo multimeter (doesnt need to be X decimals accurate for this..) and measure the output result of your cables, compared to diagrams of what they should be.

this simply?

and where can i find diagrams?

I may be wrong.

the output side is easy, google's full of diagrams of 24-pin ATX connectors, 4 and 8 pin CPU connectors, and 6 and 8pin PCIe connectors.

 

the side of the power supply.. to be honest with you.. i'd either look at the cables if it came with ketchup and mustard cables, or use a cheap meter to measure it out. because for some odd reason power supply manufacturers just cant agree on a sensible standard.

 

like i said, if you're not comfortable doing this i'd recommend you not to. but all in all, it's really easy if you keep your mind at it.

Assuming you have a fully modular PSU just make a copy of the existing PSU cable

Are you just covering up the 24 pin and CPU 8 pin?

Nope. Sometimes the cables twist on their way to the PSU and aren't in a straight line. Some PSUs also use more pins on the PSU than on the connector side - for example the PSU has a 28pin slot for the motherboard 24pin cable.

How are you going to sleeve the soldered cables? If you don't have the PSU yet buy a fully modular one

The Straight Power 11 is fully modular. I believe it's currently the only fully modular PSU in Be Quiet's lineup.
