This is no ordinary 18AWG wire. It has been specially made for use in custom PC power supply cables. As you can see in the images, there is absolutely no writing or indentations on the wire. This was done so that there would be no chance of the contrasting letters and numbers bleeding through your artfully crafted cables.
The outside diameter is right at 2.3mm (+/- .05mm)
This wire is unusually easy to train (cable shaping) because of its special internal construction. So, that means this wire will hold its shape better than most, and will train faster.
The wire is intentionally packaged without a spool which reduces “memory” in the wire. Most wire is only sold on a small spool. This may be convenient for some, but for making custom cables that require precision lengths, this can be a problem. The problem is that each piece of wire from a small spool must be straightened out over and over again before it can be properly measured, cut and sleeved.
For projects that require bare wire, this white wire is also UV reactive
Pro tip! It is highly recommended that white wire be used when sleeving with white, yellow or any other light colored sleeve. With that being said. there is no problem using this white wire with darker colored sleeve as long as it a good sleeve with a tight weave like MDPC-X Sleeve!
