Thread: removing cables from a power supply

    Question removing cables from a power supply

    Hello guys,

    I just started work on sleeving the cables in my pc, the 8pin for the cpu is done and it looks awesome . But I encountered a problem.

    My 24 pin connector for the motherboard uses 30 pins on the psu end (18 and 12). Now I don't really want double cables running from the motherboard side to the psu, so i was asking myself: can i just remove the double cables and replace them with single ones? Since I dont know a lot about how the magic of this psu works, I was hoping someone on here could help me out.

    I'm using a EVGA supernova 650 GS

    (I'm also taking off the second set of 6+2 connectors on the gpu cable, I am pretty sure that won't be of any harm)

    For your PCIe cables removing the two ground wires that are not in use is fine, however on your 24 pin you will need run splices on the double wires. I would not recommend only running one wire as it can result in system instability when under load.
