Sleeving my scout! Will 20M be enough?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello guys, its time for me to start thinking about sleeving the cables on my scout to get it finished. But im trying to do it without spending over £50. Now im not sure if that can be done but thats what im in this section for

I have just got a new motherboard, the Asus Sabertooth 990FX which is a military themed motherboard. So i have decided to go with the green and gray colour scheme. Now i have been looking around for PSU tools to take the wires out the connectors and i have found the cheapest place is Special Tech. The tools are the same as the sunbeam ones but just branded differently. So those tools come to £16.45.

Here is the sleeve and the heatshrink i need

Titanium gray 7.95 euros (£6.81)

Combat green 7.95 euros (£6.81)

x2 Pre-cut small black heatshrink 7.98 (£6.84)

Parts total: 23.88 euros (£20.47)
VAT: 3.81 euros (£3.26)
Shipping: 7.00 (£6.00)

Total: £29.73 + tools £16.45 = £46.18

Now will 20 meters be enough for my whole case excluding the 24Pin and the 8Pin which i am not doing? Well i am buying a 30cm 8 pin extension for my cpu power cable and i have got a 30cm 24Pin extension, so those will need sleeving as well because they are the wrong colour.

So will i have enough????

Thanks

Thanks for the quick reply! Yeah they do quite a wide variety of colours, and they also do coloured heat shrink but they wont suit the build unfortunately.
