Argh, okay, I give up. The 3M doesn't fit either.

Somebody PLEASE tell me what 3:1 heatshrink I can get in white that will actually freaking fit. Because I am really, really tired of redoing the same wire only to find it still doesn't work. And I've run through every 3:1 and 2:1 non-adhesive I can find that doesn't have to be ordered by the 100ft+ spool.

And yeah, it really does have to be white.

MDPC-X small and SATA size 4:1 heatshrink is probably the best white you'll find. I've also used Mod/Smart 3:1 white heatshrink and it's pretty good as well.

Have you considered heatshrinkless sleeving?

Are you doing something unusual or is it just basic sleeving with heatshrink?

Absolutely not happening - would cost twice as much in shipping as the product for MDPC-X. Nearly $20 for 0.75m - and I need a LOT more than that. Nope. Sucks, but that's the truth of it. Mod/Smart I can't find in non-"perfect cut" which is exactly the wrong length.

Nope, heatshrinkless is not happening. Does not work right aesthetically. Tried it, took one look, went "blech." Look up 'urban camo' paracord. Imagine with black connectors, on black PCBs, in a white chassis. Yeah, it's awful.
It's just the easy to find stuff not fitting in the connectors. It's too wide at the strain relief. I was told Techflex 3:1 while not thin-wall would be fine, but alas, it's just too thick. (And it ain't my crimps. Did the same on a machine crimp.) I found a source for Sumitomo Sumitube B2(3X), but I can't find actual specifications on the known-to-work stuff. Like, actual real specifications as opposed to 'blah blah marketspeak.'

Looks like what I need to know is the nominal wall thickness after recovery - Sumitube B2(3X) is 0.7mm/0.28in walls after recovery for the 6/2mm But Techflex doesn't disclose, MDPC-X doesn't disclose and Mod/Smart doesn't disclose. So I can't compare. Techflex looks like it's about 1mm but I can't tell for sure. mad.gif

As a matter of fact, I do. Those look to be JST-XH connectors. The barrel is just a barrel connector. You can order XH connectors direct from JST, provided you don't mind getting a lot of them for very little money. (You'll need the crimp tool anyway.) I think Mouser might have them, but don't hold me to that.
I want to say they're XHP-2's, but take measurements. JST definitely makes an identical part though.

thank you!

ill have to investigate, think i may be better off making my own with standard dupont headers and crimps

I had that happen to me and I just grabbed a T10 star bit (just barely fit in the hole), flipped it upside down and gave a few taps... I then raped one of my xtra PCIE cables for a good wire.
