So apparently a package from Icemodz spent past night in my mailbox. Found it this morning and proceeded to open it up to get straight to work.
The package included the MDPC-X sleeving, some 18AWG wire for the PSU cables and heatshrink as well as female ATX pins. Today I did the fans only, as it doesn't really make sense to sleeve before the PC is up and running.
The white sleeve isn't supposed to keep it's color for long. Today was my first attempt at dyeing. I used 70ml Rit dye (color: teal) and mixed it with 30ml vinegar as well as 2 spoons of salt. All of that on top of 1L water.
After letting the sleeving simmer for around 30 minutes I archieved this tone:
Not really what I hoped.
The translucent molex connectors were in the bath for just a few minutes, so they seem to absorb the dye very well. But also not really the color I hoped to get.This thread
was very helpful and informative. Feel free to visit cpachris' thread if you want to do this yourself
. Though, I'll probably end up spraypainting the sleeve as dispersion dye (the one that worked best in the tests) apparently isn't available in Germany.
