My System Specs

Default Fix or Fab a ruined 24 Pin wire

Hey everyone,

I was sleeving my Seasonic X650 PSU, the one that has the two different connections for the 24 pin. I accidentally ruined one of my red 5v cables.

Basically it has two different gauge wires, one regular and one smaller and it splits into from the 24pin to each of the modular connections. Basically, I'm hoping someone would have a little bit of wire left and a few (3) female crimps....

The cable length is 22in from atx pin to the two modular pins.

Basically, i was hoping that i could send someone the wire in hopes that you would be willing to fix or fab a new one for me. I'll obviously pay whatever you feel is necessary. I would do it myself, but i dont have any of the parts or tools to get it done :S.... and the only place I can get some is in the states, and well, considering the issues with certain US companies, i wont be buying from any of them, any time soon.

I've attached a pic to show you what I mean,



Thanks in advance guys!

Just solder it back together, and shrinkwrap it.

Yeah dude that should do it. I'd do it for you even... if only you lived closer.

lol i need to better explain.

the smaller gauge wire (stripped at tip) needs a female crimp and the area where I twisted the cable together needs to be soldered :S

If you send me a drawing of what exactly you need I'll do it. But it may not be for a few days as I need to go out and buy some smaller wire. Although I only use black wire so I hope that would b e fine as well.

Thanks everyone, but I got it fixed... used my pops soldering iron and some good luck...

Would have written sooner if it wasnt for a trip to the emergency clinic for stitches.... nearly took off my thumb when trying to get the stock heatshrink off of one of the modular cables lol



Thanks guys, please close or delete :D
