Dyeing/Painting Corsair Individually Sleeved Cables - Page 2

You can get a sleeving kit pretty cheap: http://www.xoxide.com/sleeving.html

That includes the sleeves and heat shrink. I'm not sure if you can fit the sleeving over the pin or not. If not, you'd need to get some pins and a crimper. Also very cheap.

just get some mdpc sleeve, best quality and easiest to use imo. or lutro0-customs sleeve is also really good.

should have just custom sleeved from the start, probably would have ended up cheaper lol.

You will find sleeve that will come close to matching what you are needing and if you only need a few wires I can just bust those out for you.

Sleeving isn't that hard once you take a moment and poke about a bit see how its done. Good way to pass an evening, and at the end you get a machine that you can brag about to your buddies that has a pretty exclusive mod; most PC's I see, even by gamers, don't bother to do their own sleeving - either they buy a kit like the one you have, or get extenders.

As to how easy it is, this is the first build I have done since Windows 95 was released:



Did the sleeving myself using stuff from MDPC, and once I did a few experiments, dived headfirst. Was a lot simpler than I thought - just get the right tools, which can be had from MDPC, which I recommend, or you can get them from lutro0 - which I have heard nothing but great things about.

I really only want the two y-cables for my GPUs to be half black/half red. That's really it. Do the AXi series require special wires though?

Seems like the Corsair cables were a pretty stupid purchase now.rolleyes.gif

Wow! That rig looks amazing... really! Really nice use of the 350D! Now if only the green on the titan's could be changed too.

That is being worked on... its proving to be something of a nightmare to figure out a easy way to do so that doesn't involve destroying what is already there. Though at this rate, might not have much more choice.
