Is anyone here familiar with the wire standards and gauges required to do a complete custom build.
I'm fine with the building just need to source the correct materials and I'm not an electrician so the various wire gauges and standards are a little overwhelming.
As far as I can tell so far. (I'm in the UK) AWG, the American Wire Gauge, is the start point and determines the thickness of the wire, with 18AWG being the apparent standard for a 24 pin power cable. Whilst the smaller thickness yet higher numbered 20 or 22 AWG being used for fans.
Is there anyone here that understands this stuff, if not can anyone point me to a resource where I could learn more about it.
