But the purpose of heat shrink for "shrinkless" sleeving is to melt the shrink onto the pin. It will take some trial and error until you learn how much to overlap the sleeve over the pin and still be able to get it in the connector. Once you get it down it's no big deal. I like to kind of overdo mine and pinch the end down pretty good with my thumb and finger, it makes getting the pin in the connector much easier. Every once in a while I won't pinch it enough and have to redo the hot shrink but it's rare.
Usually the hardest part is learning how long to cut the sleeve. You will pick up tips from Lutro0's video but eventually you will learn by doing. Fortunately as long as you stick with the same type sleeve it's pretty consistent.
Great thanks for the tips!AKG K550
Anyone considering a audiophile headset I highly recommend this after only 5 hours of use I am blown away at the sound quality coming off of my own board sound card (I have a amp and Creative X-fi Titanium coming later this week) As for comfort, after 5 hours of use it barely feels like I have anything on at all. The seal on the Cans fit perfect to my head, this is my first adventure into this level of audio and I have been listening to music noticing things I've never heard in songs. Also the same with games.Sleeving Options
I am looking to sleeve my PSU here is the color combo I am looking at.
I would like to use all 4 on the 24 pin them maybe just black grey and color X (I think it looks like blood red if you ask me someone correct me if I am wrong). I think this would be a nice looking setup to match my color scheme.
I am also considering replacing either white or grey with
