Help with case/psu cable sleeving

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I just got my define R4 yesterday and I got my beautiful MDPC white cable sleeve today. The first thing I want to get sleeve on is the case cables but when I take a look at the cables I'm a little bit confused about how to do this. The cables are several different gauges some thicker than I think I can sleeve and some very small. I'm just wondering how to go about this. I can upload a few pictures of the cables if that would help.

I think it's actually better to start with PSU cables, since they are uniform and the MDPC is sized for those. Once you have the technique good, then do the case wires. (I assume you mean the power button and hdd led etc).

But please, post some pictures so we can give correct advice smile.gif

Alright I'll deffinatly post pictures when I get home. The reason I don't want to sleeve my psu yet is because I'm thinking about making my own cables with white cable underneath. They would look a lot cleaner and I would be able to make my cables a custom length so it would be a lot cleaner. I still am not for sure on that though because I don't want to do it if it's going to cost too much.

My psu is a seasonic x series 460fl.

Your going to be better off making custom cables as you'll end up with some colour bleed through otherwise. To make custom cables your going to need to buy a crimper, pins, wire and connectors( or reuse your old one.) as you should already have the depinning tools.( I recommend the one lutro0 has for $50 5* crimps every time.) And only you can say if its worth it.

As for the different gauge wire some are voltage sense cables(The small ones) and I'm pretty sure the rest is cost cutting by the maker.
