    Default Asus ROG Thor 1200W Reivew @ KitGuru

    ROG Thor 1200P is based on a heavily modified version of the similar capacity Seasonic Prime Platinum model, featuring larger heatsinks internally and a micro-controller feeding real-time power draw data to an OLED screen installed on the unit’s side

    @crmaris > Mr Mpitziopoulos

    You listed these indi-sleeved cables as mostly 18AWG; it's my experience that where jumps / splices occur - two wires crimped to one terminal - manufacturers tend to use a pair of 20AWG to accomplish that

    You stated the 24pin is a mix of 18/20, 18g (primary) + 20g (sense)? Yes or no, the PCI-e GRFX cables are 100% 18g?

    Questions

    24pin: on pin 10 or 11 - 12v spliced with sense wire - is the primary 12v 18?, or are they perhaps both 20AWG in this instance

    PCI-e: due to Seasonic's 12v / ground pin assignment in their 8pin ports, for GRFX 6+2, one slot in the bottom 12v row is empty, while two ground wires have to jump into one top slot (invariably, the spliced pair tends to become the 2pin of the 6+2). That wire-pair that jumps, are they indeed a pair of 18, an 18/20, or 20/20

    I'd like to know if the spliced 12volt lead is 18 or 20, & if the GRFX is also perhaps an 18/20 mix like the 24pin is, ty

    edit: Are these premium gold-plated terminals?

    only the dedicated PCIe cables use indi-sleeved cables. The other ones are flat/ribbon style and use AWG18 up to the second connector.

    For the rest questions I am sorry but only once I find more time I can check and reply to you.
