Yes, you can do heatshrinkless with paracord and you don't need to use sacrificial heatshrink when you do it.

The main thing that is different is that the weave of paracord varies from batch to batch and colour to colour so you'll probably find it stretches different amounts rather than consistently like MDPC-X sleeve does. Also the underlying colour of the wire doesn't show through unless it's really cheap quality stuff.

I was most likely going to go with Lutro0's coreless cord. Either that or just but a 100' roll cheap on eBay or something. I actually found some 100' bundles on Amazon for about $9 shipped. It has the inner strands though, so I would have to pull those out. I'm actually somewhat leaning towards cord that still has the inner strands to use them to pull the wires through.

Do you have a personal preference paracord or MDPC?

I prefer PET sleeving as I think it looks better and is a bit easier to work with although I do appreciate the wider colour range available with paracord (at the moment). After saying that paracord can be a very cheap method of getting great results.

Using the inner strands to pull the wire through won't help unless you wrap the pin in masking tape. Much better to use a paracord sleeving tool as it save loads of time.

Yes. But I would have had to do a lot more work on the cable management. But this way the cable has tension against itself from the curve. It holds the cable in place. Plus I honestly do like the gradual clean curve. tongue.gif

Mine has 23-wires only. I cut the other one off, like all my Silverstone PSUs. :

Every wire crosses over one other wire immediately next to it, which provides the straightest 24-pin possible. Jimhans1 is right where the cable would be much straighter if I inverted the PSU. However where every cable crosses the next one will be visible. It would look like a sloppy mess w/o tension.

Yeah, I have one of those tools sitting in the Lutro0 shopping cart. Looks just like a small piece of brass pipe. I might have some of that laying around at work I could use. I think I'll order the Amazon cord first since it's so cheap, then if I'm having a hard time because of the inner core threads I'll re-order the coreless from Lutro0. Thanks for your input Elf thumb.gif

Okay, now I need your guys' opinion. I really want to resleeve my PSU. The first time I sleeved them I only sleeved the first foot that would be seen near the motherboard. It was a real sloppy job. Now I want to redo them so the entire length of the wires are sleeved.

My problem is the color. I have an orange and black theme and am currently using MDPC-x sleeve but would rather not order from them again due to price. None the other orange sleeve currently available from Kobra, Techflex, Bitspower, etc, match the color or quality of MDPC. And Lutro0 doesn't have Orange Teleios available yet. I've tried PMing him and emailing through the site asking if he has any idea when it would be available but have gotten no response.

So I'm considering going with Paracord this time around. Who here has worked with both PET style sleeving and paracord and what are your opinions on both? I generally prefer the look of PET sleeve but really don't have anything against paracord, I've just never used it.

Also, is it possible to do heatshrink-less for paracord?

Yeh that was a single knot and it slipped undone because of the radius of that bend at the end of the cable. I find its actually really quick. I just did the dual 8pin cables for my GPU (laced them both as one cable) so 16pins and it took maybe 3mins max for each stitch.

As for working with paracord I have done it in the past and it is much nice IMO for actually sleeving as it is so much faster but the end result is no where near as nice as what you get with PET, the cables are just floppy as there is no tension in the paracord and it doesnt stretch as nicely or as lowfat said as uniformly as PET, personally I would never go back to it, since I have started using Teleios I don't think I could use anything else now.

Thanks for the info Gardner. I will be stitching the cables after being sleeved so that would help keep them in place I think. Since it's so cheap, I'll probably by some paracord and if I don't like it then wait for the Orange Teleios to be released, which, according to the PM response I got from Lutro0 about an hour ago, should be released in about a month or so.

Very nice Gardner. What kind of thread is that you are using. It almost looks like it has a wax coating on it. Really digging that color scheme too
