Cable Sleeving Gallery & Discussion - Page 122

post #1211 of 14487
yeah that is one of my concerns is the stretchiness. But i guess thats not really an issue with psu cables. Sata however will be difficult...

Also i cant justify spending so much money to ship cable sleeving to america. Im not made of dough atm....

if nylon multifilament are "shoe strings" then what are mdpc shiny plastic thigns?

Wow, I think I just spent about an hour reading this whole thread.
For myself, I just purchased 125 feet of Clean Cut 1/8 from Furryletters, they also emailed me and let me know they sell 3/16 heatshrink (not listed on ebay). Althou it is 2:1 it looks to fit just fine, I left on vaca before I could get started (yes im reading forums on my vaca ), all of my parts should be waiting for me when I get back. Ill post pics when I get it done. My only concern right now would be that the heatshrink would be lame. (not fit in the connector and not be tight) So we will see.

The headphones are Sennheiser 201's and the cable is around 3 meters long and splits into 2 at the end and the Zalman Mic runs halfway up the right hand split. How much would it cost to sleeve it?.

EDIT;: FORGOT TO MENTION I"M FROM NEW ZEALAND!!!
Hey I'm from NZ too It shouldn't cost too much to sleeve. Look for a guy called Furryletters on eBay and grab some of his 1/8" sleeve. You'll spend roughly $10 (including shipping) and get enough to sleeve that cable. (I have the same headphones too) As for heatshrink, a seller called genuinedealz on eBay sells 1/8" 3:1 ratio heatshrink that will work just fine for that. Again, roughly only around $10 for the heatshrink including shipping and it will be more than enough for the job.

I just switched from 3:1 to 4:1 heatshrink as I couldn't get the pins back into the connectors. The 4:1 shrinks very tightly and fits like a glove. Very little extra bulk around the cable as opposed to the 3:1 so your 2:1 may or may not fit. You'll really have to wait and see haha.

MDPC-X.com. Best heatshrink I've ever used as it has quite a thin wall.

The thin wall is very important when your sleeving 4/6/8/24 pin connectors. It allows you to cover the wire all the way down to the end of the crimp and still be able to slide the pin into place.

Unlike alot of the 2:1-3:1 which has a wall thickness too large to do that with. The lower ratio thick wall will leave color exposed if you start looking very closely at the connectors. Hope that helps kidz

Couldn't have said it better myself! Heatshrink is crucial to a good sleeving job and MDPC shrink really is the best.

yeah. Its all a reasonable price too i just wish they opened up a shop in North america. would be nice to save on the shipping. We should set up something here on ocn to syncronize shipments from europe so they come all at once.

They sort of do...http://www.murdermod.com/ but its not taking any orders at the moment due to a problem with the supply of the other case modding stuff they sell. Only down side is that as far as I can see they only sell the black MDPC sleeve.

Thought I would also share my first sleeving attempt as well









This is all clean-cut sleeve.

Have just placed my order for MDPC sleeve, as will be upgrading my PSU in the near future. MDPC ftw
