    You have the best and most informative reviews on PSU's around.

    1. The only thing I would like to know can you take pictures more close up on the cables? Cable sleeving is getting more and more popular I'm searching for the best psu to sleeve and this one looks very good.
    2. Are there any double wires? I'm hoping that someday manufacture will make a psu thats 1:1 with 16awg wire.

    3. I have a question about wiring sense you are very knowledgeable if lets say you have a 24pin and it has 1 wire thats a double if I was to redo all the wire on the 24 pin to 16awg from 18, and change the double wire to a single would it cause any harm?

    1)Will do this, no prob :)
    2)I don't remember of any double wires since all PCIe cables have only one connector, but I am not 100% sure
    3)If the double wire starts from the same point then no, but if it is a sense wire, hence starts from a different point inside the unit, then you need to to use a double wire as well, at least up to a point.
    Delta6326 says thanks.

    So for an example if this was the cable I could just get rid of the 2 18awg and put in a single 16awg.

    BUT if it is one power and one Sense(purple in pic) than it need to do this?

    no the sense has to go all the way to the 24 pin connector, in order to measure the voltage drop correctly. Because there are voltage drops even on thick cables (thicker than 16AWG) and as load increases (more Amperes) voltage drops increase, too.

    Informative review, as always. Seems like a real good power supply. Needs to be a bit lower priced IMO, if it's going to compete with the Seasonic X-1050, for example.

    Excellent review. Very in depth, no BS. Thanks for your time :)
