Cable Sleeving Gallery & Discussion - Page 115

Some great pictures on here, really inspirational.

I've been dying to do a sleeve mod since I joined this forum, and think it's about time I actually got round to doing it.

Hopefully I can place an order for the raven 2 and H50 cooler this week and get the sleeving mod going.

Can't decide on an all black, or with red highlights like on the pictures a few posts back (looking amazing btw.)

I have a maximus formula II, so red trim should look nice.

^^^ use red and black. I just finished mine and now I wish I would have used a color. Black is nice but kind of plain.

Red and black is too common, IMO. What about gray and red? or white and red?

Hi,

I have never done any cable sleeving but I am interested in it since a long time. I'm planning on doeing each cable individually - to get my full rig done how much cable should I get aprox.? Can I only buy the smaller sleeves for each individual cable (1/8" right?)? Do I need to buy any tool at all or can I do it with my bare hands and scissors? Is buying from MDPC worth it or should I buy from Furryletters?

On my mind I had planned to buy this and 3 meters of small cable shrink form MDPC + 5 meters of SATA sleeving and 0.7 meters of Sata heatshrink form MDPC.

Thanks!

you just line up the heatshrink very carefully. Helps if you cut them all to the exact same size. I actually found a few places online that sell them precut into certain lengths, might try that

I bought 150' of 1/8" from furryletters and i have about 25 left over after doing the 24 pin, 8pin 4 6pins and about 6 fans.

1/8 is for single sleeving.

youll need a lighter, candle or heatgun.
Sharp scissors.
Sharpie.
I used the sunbeam sleeve tool kit. It worked awesome but be very careful with it.

MDPC is nice but I wasnt willing to spend the extra money, thats just me tho.
IF your going to buy the sata sleeve n shrink from there you might as well buy it all from MDPC.

Watch videos on youtube before starting your project, itll help abunch.

Hope this helps.

Fshizl, I love what you did with the orange tubing. It's nice to see someone taking a break from the usual colors and going bold. I myself have a Gigabyte motherboard and the bright blue really sticks out. With a black case, I'm not sure what exact colors of tubing/sleeving I should use. I was thinking bright blue to match the mobo, but thinking about it now, that would not do well.
