Those are there to give extra functionality like if you needed 2 6pins you can just plug in the 2 6pin parts and same with 2 8pins.

You may clean these up anyway you want - my suggestion is that you depin each one cable at a time and use a flush cutter and cut off only the part you dont want as close to the crimp as possible. PLEASE make sure you dont cut off something you need - but it is straight forward. Also make sure that you put them back in the same spots.

I hope that helps.


Thanks Lutro0

that helped ,, that means that i need to sleeve only 1 PCI-E cables and use the both connector for the GPU ( depend if i sleeved it correctly )

you think i should have additional cripms just in case or there is no need ?!

I would use two cables as those are super hard to get clean looking due to the double wires and the two cables would show off the sleeving better and yes always have some terminals laying around just in case.

This is the heatshrink I use, but only as sacrificial shrink for doing heatshrinkless sleeving.

Lutro0, I saw you did an eVGA Hadron Air PSU for TimmyTechTV, any tips for the DIY sleever regarding that particular PSU? It's going to be my first sleeving attempt, so I'm thinking I might want to finish the sleeve and heatshrink before the wires enter the PSU so I don't have to pop it open.

The Hadron Psu is a hard psu to OEM sleeve due to the small ammount of space given to hide the cables. We ended up having to dremel out the hole and double custom wire part of the internals just to get it to work for timmytechs application. If you can I suggest reducing the cables and then using extensions, as that would make for a much easier time. However if you are determined to go for a full oem type - keep in mind that this will be a indepth project that cannot just be thrown together. You will need to plan everything out before you start sleeving.

I can probably get rid of either the SATA cable or one of the Molex cables. For the rest, are you suggesting I shorten the ones coming out of the PSU a good bit, then use a custom-length extension cable to between the PSU cables and the part in question?

Yes, otherwise be prepared to do a good bit of modding to the psu and wireing. thumb.gif
