PSU modding
« on: September 03, 2003, 06:05:27 AM »

Am in the process of doing my first mod, http://www.leeraven.com/mod/mod.htm and have modded my PSU, but have now decided that I want to lengthen the wires coming of the PSU. I was going to cut the wires off an old PSU, and use bullet connectors to join onto the end of the modded PSU. The extended wire could then be re-routed behind to mobo... can anyone see a problem with this idea?

Do you mean the bullet will join into the molex of the modded psu or will you connect male and female bullet connectors on all wires?

you should have No problem with this. Keep in mind that you will add some minor resistance. But that shouldnt be an issue seen that there are those that will use the Molex spliters.

Just make sure there are no exposed wires.

All I can say is make your crimping tight, those connectors have a habit of coming of lose of the wire which can cause some real fire works in the case  :D

Why not pick up a 12" Molex extension cable and just soder it up to both ends. That way you don't have to worry about butt connectors, flaming cases, and you get the benefit of removing the extension for whatever reasons.
