  1. Thank you very much! Making sure a cable can handle the current without excessive voltage drop is easy (bigger wires, such as #14). After all, the original wires going to each pin are only #18. Btw, the load plays the major role in determining how much current is drawn through a cable. The size of the size of the wires determine how much current can be safely passed through the cable and the size and length of the wires determine voltage drop.
  2. 302 reads and not one person can answer a simple question?
  3. Why can't I get a straight answer? I feel like I'm talking to an Amazon bot. Forget the blasted cable and answer the bloody question I asked, which is what is the OCP (Over-Current Protection) at each socket?
  4. You are also completely missing the point! Forget what I asked about running two sockets in parallel and read my reply to c-attack. Yeesh!
  5. I'm NOT asking about the bloody rails! Those ratings are right on the PSU, for crying out loud. Each socket on the PSU has their own separate overcurrent protection. It's like each socket has it's own little circuit breaker on it. The protection for each socket is there to protect it from the entire capacity of the rail going through that one little socket. You wouldn't want to be able draw 63A @12v through one little pair of pins (+ and GND), would you? Again all I want to know is how many amps is each 6 pin socket's "circuit breaker" rated for and is that rating for each voltage or for all of them combined? What on earth is so difficult about that to understand?
  6. 1. No, you didn't. You gave me the typical rating of a cable, not the actual rating of the overcurrent protection on this specific PSU. 2. Your answer didn't really address my question and I don't know how to simplify the question any further.
  7. Sigh. Let me simplify this for you all. Forget what I'm planning on doing. Just answer one or both of these simple questions: 1. What is the rating of the overcurrent protection of each of the six pin sockets on the AX760 PSU (not the rating of the socket itself or the entire rail)? Does that protection rating apply to each voltage separately or combined? 2. Can two six pin sockets on the PSU be connected in parallel to one cable without shorting anything out or damaging the PSU?
  8. Come on, guys. Surely someone can answer this. Additional information: I'm confident a 25A rail can handle the power I need for my peripheral devices but I seriously doubt one socket can handle that much current, which is why I have asked how much current a 6 pin socket on the AX760 can handle. I can easily make a cable that can handle the current I need but, assuming each socket is unable to handle what I need (such as being rated for only 15A, for example), could I run two sockets in parallel to get the current capacity I need?
  9. Items that use 3.3v, 5v, and 12v power with SATA or "Molex" power connections. I want to power a homemade SATA power strip I can plug 5.25" devices, such as up to 13 SSDs and one or two ODDs, into the power strip with short jumpers instead of having to run multiple cables to the PSU.
  10. A lone cricket chirps in the background.
  11. Excuse the necro post but I've used a magnetic DEMCIFilter on my HX750 for over five years without a problem. Just don't let it get so dirty that it significantly reduces air flow.
  12. How much current are each of the six pin ports on the AX760 rated for? Also, is possible to get more current capacity to a cable by connecting two of the six pin ports in parallel?
