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 2mm (+/- .05mm) so that it also crimps much easier than thicker wire which can be in excess of 2.4mm.
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.
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!
Great wire for GPU connectors.

Having gone through numerous brands and gauges of wire for ATX connectors, so far the MOD ONE brand has worked the best for me. It is easy to train and sleeve. The wire also crimps nicely, allowing the pins to easily grab every strand. I was searching for a good wire to use regularly in my business, and I think I have found it. After using the first 25', I believe this will be what I use for all of my custom builds from here on. Already planning a large order for the near future.
