Heatshrink-Less MDPC Sleeving :D [Updated 2/12/2012]

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
I have seen multiple guides on paracord hs-less sleeving but haven't seen many MDPC hs-less besides lustros stuff. I've been playing with it and finally figured out how to make it work! Was totally going to hire lustro to do my cables but sadly he only does extensions! frown.gif So.. I have been tinkering with it for a while and got it. It is tedious, but your sleeving anyways so its just extra work, and its also not entirely heatshrink less, you just won't see it at the end. PSU I am using is the Sea Sonic X-1250.

Here are some quick samples I just finished and will but updated with tutorial when I get some more time.

Guide:

I'm going to assume or make it mandatory for everyone who wants to do this at least read over or watch all of lustro's guides and videos. http://www.overclock.net/t/1122053/lutro0-customs-sleeving-tool-tutorials/0_100. Most of everything I'm showing here is all following his steps. Credits to him.

So the trick is: just keep burning the shrink until it's brown and crispy. Then the MDPC sleeve underneath should be melted enough to stay on the crimp. Is the insulation tape important, or is it just because you were doing white sleeve?

Basically, the white tape was just because I was using white sleeve. The trick is to not melt it too much, too many trial and errors to find that certain point. Ill edit it later when I get some extra time.

I had no Idea that shrink was needed on a shrinkless sleeved wire.

Sorry couldn't really finish the guide.... I don't have a good enough camera to zoom in on the cables..... iPhone camera just doesn't cut it! But yes the way I do it the heat shrink is required cause it squeezes the melting part of the mdpc sleeve to hold into the cable.
