help sleeving

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
hey so i got my 24 pin done sleeving with paracord =) but now im doing my gpu power atm. what im stuck with sleeving it is its one 6 pin and then they split it into the second 6pin. idk how i go about sleeving this since paracord isn't really that thick for two of those wires.(would take a long time trying to fit it in and trust me i had to do it with one of my 24pin wires took a good 20mins of messing with it till it fit) and ideas because my minds fried from spending time on this and school/work and i need other bright minds to help me. =)


heres the split wire


this is how the gpu power wire is setup weird when trying to sleeve it but saves room in my case pros and cons =/


close up view of the split wire ( black shadow is me sorry for bad pic taking)

Well you could try using a larger size of the heatshrink over the two wires.

4:1 or 3:1 1/4" heatshrink is all you need. Here's what we came up with for a client.



Also, after re-reading your post, is the power supply in question modular? If it is, just remove the wire from the other end of the connector. If not, the proper way is to cut the pin off, sleeve the wire and recrimp another pin on. We offer this as a service if you're interested.

I used performance PCS for the pins I bought. Pins come in male and female connectors - be sure you get the correct ones.

A crimping tool is great for if you were going to do a lot, otherwise just use some pliers.

I can do whatever you need done

If not, just cut the wire about an inch from the pin, slide the sleeve/heatshrink on, solder, tape or heatshrink the spot and heat your shrink for the sleeve
