My System Specs


You definitely don't want to use speaker wire. It is not meant for this application. Also crimping pins on to 16 gauge wire isn't all that easy. The pins and crimpers are not meant for wire that large. And I would know as I currently redoing a lot of the cables of one of my power supplies in 16 gauge wire.

Also unless you have a completely modular power supply I don't think you realize how much work recabling a power supply is.

Personally I think having speaker wire all over the place inside a power supply would be about as ugly as computers could possibly get.
