OK
Last night I got my first taste of sleeving. I practiced with the three sample colors Nils sent me, and sleeved some spare wires I had lying around from another PSU of mine. Suffice it to say...this should be an interesting experience! I definitely need to have Nils's guide in front of me next time. I was using a heat gun, but I think, unless I can find some adapters to make the heat gun more precise, I'm going to just use a lighter. The heat gun heated too much surface area at once, and I found myself scorching the pins and burning my fingers ha

But, practice makes perfect I reckon.

If your gf is there, maybe you shouldn't be working too much on the PC tongue.gif

I use just a regular lighter too for my sleeving. The plastic sleeving melted when I used my gun too.

Yeah, I was frustrated with the gun, really. I'll look into getting an adapter.

Alright folks, I set up my water loop. I only today realized I never took the time to pick up any DI water, so I didn't leak test it. One of my 45° rotary fittings felt a bit wobbly, so we'll have to see.

The lady friend wanted to wait for better lighting before taking any pics, so this post will just have to serve as a tease smile.gif

I also installed the power supply. But, since I'll be sleeving and don't have a viable means to cool my processor yet, there's no point in hooking any cables up anyways. I told you I was taking my time! Stay with me!

Alright, as promised, a small pictorial update. I have a couple questions at the end, but first...!






I need your opinions, folks. I'm trying to decide between sleeving the tubes or leaving them as is. I'm glad that I got matte tubing, but I think the sleeving could be cool on a case-wide basis. What do y'all think? It wasn't the easiest thing, and I'm wondering if there are any foreseeable consequences for using compression fittings with sleeving covering up the tubes.

Also, in sleeving my PSU, I found that there are a lot of like, twistings and pairings among the cables. For instance, if the connectors were compared, port 1A wouldn't necessarily lead to 2A. Does that make sense? I'm wondering if that matters a whole lot. Part of me figures it's just power, so what difference does it make? Another part of me thinks if Seasonic did it this way, it has to matter, right?
