The colour scheme I think I am going to switch over to when I redo my bench (again) when parts start to arrive.

I have a question for you lowfat or anyone that can answer for that matter but I have a feeling you will have the knowledge.

I am switching from a dual 6 pin to dual 8 pin gpu. I am wondering about the pinouts for the silverstone strider gold evo series. Are the extra 2 pins ground and will it matter which pin goes to which pin(psu to gpu pcie cables)? iirc they are both ground and it shouldn't matter but I wanted to double check with the grandmaster himself.

Yes they are grounds. No it doesn't matter. But as a rule of thumb.. Re-wire as you found it

Unfortunately I noobed it and sleeved the 8 pin cables instead of the 6 pins for some odd reason. Bigtime Derp.

Also I'm currently using 6 to 8 pin extensions which came with the video card. They actually just have a 7 wires with the 7th being a double wire. Does this mean I only actually need to do 1 extra wire for each?

Ended up ordering one of these and will just make a pinout sheet and switch my cables accordingly.

Is it possible to sleeve only part of a cable and attach the sleeving partway along the cable somehow? I was thinking of sleeving a few of the cables of a power supply in a Corsair Carbide Air 540, and since the PSU is in a separate compartment of the case it seems like a waste to purchase many meters of sleeving when the only part that will be seen is the last little bit that comes into the main compartment.

Sure you can but it would be hard to get a very tight sleeve job.

Easily. Shrink tubing comes in a 4:1 with adhesive on it. So you just trim your sleeving to the length you want and then use the adhesive shrink tubing and it will hold it in place.
