On the USB 3.0 20pin internal plug; I believe your best bet is to do that particular cable from the other side - the dual(?) front USB 3.0 plugs (blue) 'should' unscrew from the front panel, and then with some work, and tape, you 'should' be able to just get Sata size sleeve over the female USB's one at a time. (Might need to go up to a 1" sleeve and pull it tight, tight, tight... I'll see if I have time to test the 1/2" sata sleeve over a female USB port while I'm working in the shop this weekend) Then I'd recommend either doing a large heatshrink over the 20pin connector or just push the sleeve right up to the shank of the connector and add a small dot of superglue (I personally prefer the heatshrinkless on Sata and USB cables because I think it looks cleaner.)
thanks, yea the usb 3.0 isdual cable and i will try to start the sleeving from the other side

Yes, the colour scheme will work.

Depending on your PSU and determination to sleeve ALL wires (like the sata on that hot swap bay and the fan wires/etc.) you may end up using 250 feet of sleeving or somewhere around.

That 24 pin cable I posted above took a large portion of a 100-foot chunk of paracord. I ordered 300 feet, because I knew I’ll have screw ups (so far I have three or four botched pieces lying on the floor each about the length of a 24-pin), and almost finished the first 100-foot pack.

Using an extension is really a matter of preference and utility. Nothing stops you from combing and stitching the cable (or whatever your preferred binding solution) straight and orderly to your desired spot and letting it go haywire with splits and random pinouts from thereon, thereby making it equivalent to using an extension, but without the connector shebang, little difference really.

lol that color scheme is identical to mine, including the layout of the colors on the cables tongue.gif

Sata sleeve wont fit for the USB3 connector, you would have to go with something bigger. In the end i just left mine. Its an awful looking connector even when sleeved, If my motherboard didn't have it right angled i probably would have not even used it.

Backup set of cables. Actually since all my PSUs are Silverstone Striders I have like 10 sets of backup cables, most of which are sleeved. tongue.gif

As for USB3.0, I don't use the front panel cables anymore. They are an eyesore to me and ruin the look.

I'm not sure how tight a fit that will be, if its to much do it single. If you can get them into the same sata sleeve make the ugly end up by the IO panel were it wont be seen.

Yea I hate those huge ended usb3 20pins myself, I got a "low-profile" extension for it so it'll match all my single sleeves.

Not over the connector, but you can do it from the other side...




here's my guide on doing it with the Prodigy USB 3.0

^ nice guide. What size sleeving did you have to go with for that?
post #10299 of 14329
Thanks! That was standard MDPC Shade 19 SATA sleeving...thumb.gif This should work with LC sleeving as well...

A small note: the LC Sata sleeve is a 8mm sleeve with a denser design so it expands JUST enough to go over the sata heads, but then it contracts to have a better coverage. So if MDPC was a tight fit the LC Sata size may not fit!
