Cable Sleeving Gallery & Discussion - Page 1119

There were a few times I thought I was going to break the pin because I had to pull so hard to get the pin out. But once they finally popped out they looked exactly the same as the ones that came right out with a gentle tug

@Lutro0: I learned sleeving based on that video you mentioned, it's a shame I haven't remembered that part smile.gif Thanks for the tip.

Ok, so I won smile.gif To be exact, brute force has. I'm at almost half way now. Some pins came out quite easy, for some I needed all my strength, but the very first pin is not ok. Here is a pic after I got it out (took me an hour, and all my strength):

faulty-pin

So I guess I broke the pin, no wonder I needed so much power to get it out... Do you guys think I will be able to use it, or I have to re-crimp it if I want to use the original cable someday?

Anyway, here is the 8pin I did at the weekend:

If you use staples, you have room to fit something between them, like thin needle nose pliers, and push the pin out from the other side.

A 2.5 or 3mm allen wrench works great to push out the stubborn ones

I just bought a pin remover yesterday... Now I'm having second thoughts about sleeving my cables, and just hiring someone to do it instead.

Yeah it's a pain to do, but it's so satisfying once you're done.
post #11188 of 14446
My gpu cable is 6+2, but i only need the 6 for now. Should i do cable sewing for the 6+2 and leave the 2 hanging or completely hide it behind?
post #11189 of 14446
If you don't plan on needing the +2 for a while then I would hide it. You can always pull it out later if you upgrade/change GPUs.

Agreed. Both my cards are dual 6-pin so my +2's are all hidden. I actually didn't even bother sleaving them. Kind of regretting that now that I'm starting to look at upgrades and will most likely need them
