CPU 8 pin unsleeved top, CPU 8 pin sleeved bottom.

I also have some Shade 19 that I will be using on the 24 pin.

I'll be sleeving my entire PSU. No extensions here.

Very nice without the heatshrink...think that just made my mind up for a redo of my 1st go at it.thumb.gif

Until I had it myself. I was never a fan of the single sleeved cables. I always thought they looked messy. Looking through this thread and seeing the awesome jobs. It's changed my mind. It hasn't changed the fact it sucks to do. lol

First time sleever. I've done the 8pin CPU (below), 6pin GPU and currently working on the SATA power.

Thanks for the input though. thumb.gif

A lot will depend on the quality of the heat shrink. High quality shrink will shrink more but generally speaking 15 mm should work.

Decided to do some trimming and see how it looks. I like it much better short, but still debating on whether to just go shrinkless or change it to black heat-shrink. Also, what do you think about para-cord? Have you ever used it? I like the look of it and am considering doing a swap over to it. Thanks again for your input.

Just got word that my copper tube arrived today. I will be adding an XSPC water-block and HeatKiller backplate to the 780Ti, as well as a radiator and fan swap too. I'm ditching my XSPC 280 and Spectre Pro PWM's for EK and Corsair SP120's.

I found using heat shrink took too long to get just right. I don't want to spend all day on a few cables.
My 8 pin CPU heat shrink less took me about 15 minutes with a few mess ups (cut the sleeve a tad too short).

I've been stitching the cables so they won't be nappy looking.
