I hope this isn't a dumb question. How would you go about making an entire set of new  PSU cables? I'm just wondering if you could make GPU cables without having the short six pin cable coming off the 8 pin cable. Would look cleaner if they were separate. Or if you have any pics of GPU cables could you post them?

3x 580 Hydro copper in SLI
GTS 450 (Fermi) For Phyx

Id be interested in learning how to make a PSU cable from scratch. Would you use all female connectors in a female housing and male for male housing?
 
Couldnt find much information online, most were just poking the cables out and throwing sleeves on them...

for creating your own cable set, i would say look at your actual PSU to determine if u need male or female pins/connectors on each end.  and dont forget to measure how long you actually need the cable.  if the gpu connector is only 6 inches from the PSU, dont make a foot long cable for it...  this guide explains perfectly how to build them.  the only change will be the type of connectors.  I dont know if all modular cables use male pins on both ends or all female pins on both ends, so just look at your PSU to see what you need to plug into it.

So the one thing I can't seem to find any reference to... is it difficult to get the pins into the housing? Any special trick for that?

its easy to get the pins into the housing, you literally just push them into the housing until you hear a click and then your done

Outstanding, I was just a bit curious about that part since they're a bit of a pain in the tushy to get out of the housing to begin with.

That seriously looks like a lot of work, but the end result is way worth it! Love that pro look!
