    Thumbs up Need a power Supply Recommendation :)

    Are there any power supplies out there that have direct pin-outs? I don't want to have any splits or crossed cables for having custom cables done so was wondering if A good contender is out there. Anything 550w-750w will be good.

    Didn't quite understand what you where looking for. But your PSU cables are visible from the begin to the end? You don't want any crossed wire?

    My PSU doesnt have a direct pinout. Its 26 pin to 24 pin & the periferal power out is flipped orientation. I was wondering if there was a direct pinout PSU that way when I do custom cables they are perfect with no crossed wires or splits ect.

    You won't find any decent PSU where that isn't the case.
    Because they need those +5V and +12V sense wires.

    Well I'll pay more for one that has the sense wires enclosed into the PSU.

    That's not possible. Sense wires go from the end of the ATX connector to the PSU. Sense wires inside the PSU won't have a function.

    A silly idea (I have many)

    If one knew the resistance of the external wires then one could in theory predict the voltage drop just from the current carried, and so do without sense wires...

    A more sensible idea (but not by much), get a unit without sense wires and just build ones own heavy gauge cable.

    Sense wires are so clever, who would want to do without just so things look neat and tidy? Now you could be clever and have the sense wires be thinner than the rest, just to sort of show-off that you know what is going on.

    Reminds me of the story where Steve Jobs insists the tracks on the circuit board of the original Mac must look nice and so had to be redone. Didn't work as tracks must have the right length so signals arrive at the same time (no race condition).

    It is not that much of an issue. Just sleeve them both individually till about half way then put both of them into a single piece of sleeving. Then put a piece of heat shrink over each end of the sleeving after pulling it tight and then one piece over the joint. This will turn the cable into a large Y shape allowing it to still work perfectly. It can be a bit of squeeze at the mobo end of the cable to fit the two wires and sleeving into the connector but with the correct amount of heat to melt the sleeving into place it can be done. The only downside is a few of the wires on the mobo side of the cable will be a bit fatter than the others.

    I have an EVGA Supernova GS 850W and a Seasonic Prime 650W both sleeved this way without any issues.

    Just try to avoid PSU's that have in cable caps as these are more difficult to deal with.

    You could also splice the cable into a y-cable and then sleeve as i mentioned before this allows all cable on the mobo end to be uniform, but i prefer not do this as its way more effort.

    IMO i would consider a service like CableMod or similar pre-sleeved cable kits i believe Corsair and EVGA even have there own available to buy. For the amount of time it takes to sleeve your own the price they charge is good value.
    Another alternative is to buy a pre-sleeved PSU.
