The Thermaltake PSU 24 pin was too short to get the nice loop I wanted.
I think that gives me a pretty clear idea of what I should use. Thanks for describing it!

NP. I plan on taking a pic of the "tool" and posting it because it's pretty ghetto looking. I'll post it up here tomorrow since that's my next day off.

Thanks. No, the sleeving I'm using is techflex cleancut from furryletters on ebay.

Ok guys! Here is the moment you've all been waiting for... a pic of my ever elusive pin removal tool "WarlordOne Edition" of course:



It removed all the pins without issue and is still ready for duty. It was well worth the $30+ I didn't spend...

Those are brass safety pins heatshrinked together. I also snipped of the sharp points so I wouldn't accidently stab myself. The penny is for scale...

This may be a stupid question. But how on earth did you get the sleeving over the connectors?

slip the sleeving over the wires before you reattach the connectors.

For most of them I just remove the connectors with my safety pin tool, slip over the sleeving and cut heatshrink before reattaching the connectors.

For a few of them that were lengthened or shortened I did something like this:

Splicing and sleeving cables

Except I used a binder clip instead of a ziptie to hold the sleeving back.
