2) Does anyone have a picture of dual sleeving? Specifically for pcie or the motherboard 24pin. My idea is to put the top and bottom wires in one sleeve so there is just one row of wires instead of two.

TIA!
I can put some pictures up tomorrow of #2 for you. It didn't work out well for me, but then again I was sleeving two wires coming from one pin, as opposed to two wires coming from two pins. Either way, you'll be able to see a small amount of the wires underneath as the sleeve cannot be inserted inside the connector. I have some red sleeve on its way at the moment but no blue next to it. I do know of a large gallery full of different sleeving combinations however. I'll try and find the link to that for you.

Thanks! Fortunately I'm sleeving a corsair 1200AX, so all the wires are all black. Also to fully seal everything off I was thinking of heat-wrapping each end first, and then dual wrapping. Might look smooth that way?

...but first I need to compare with the single wiring to see if I like it Just want to do something a little different than everyone else.

Thanks for the link, I'll check it out!

Also: do you (or anyone) have a link to a guide for shortening connections? Also a list of tools I would need would be most appreciated.

You mean like shortening the wires? easiest way is to chop them off and resolder them and just heat shrink or tape over the joint.

to do it the RIGHT way you'd have to go buy new pins and re-crimp everything

Indeed. The cheapest way is by far the way of soldering though.

Chop the wire, strip it back a bit on both sides. I usually tin both exposed wires and then melt them together. Once it's done, wrap it with tape (I use tape as opposed to heatshrink as tape is easier to remove should you ever need to get back to that soldered segment again) and then sleeve over it

Thanks for the responses. I don't have a soldering gun, neither do I have any crimping tools. So I think I'll do it "right" and get crimping stuff and buy my own wires.

NOOO!!! Ok so I got Krissy to send me 3 meters of FurryLetters black to sleeve my Sennheiser 201 headphones and Zalman Clip on mic and it is wonderful sleeving but i had intended to slide it over the 3.5mm jack but its too small and I dont know what i'm goign to so I really do not want to chop of the wires as I dont have a soldering iron (it broke and it was terrible anyway ) I got so mad with myself i even went outside and found a Mc Donald's straw on the side of the road to try and get the sleeving on but I cant do its I'm so m ad with myself

I sure will. I have a 250$ order in from Nils...so I'll update when I get all my stuff. Question: I have the corsair ax1200 so all my wires are modular...the part the I plug into the power supply, that's jut the same connectors as the ends we plug into MB/hDs etc right? I can just use regular crimps?
