1. What is a good size to cut the heatshrink? MDPC-X's pre-cut is 15mm, so I was thinking of that. But it seems just a little short.
15mm (or 5/8 - 3/4") is about right. Nils wouldn't have picked that length if it didn't work right. He's a perfectionist and knows what he's doing.

Unplug the psu from the wall, then depress and hold the power on button down for 30 seconds to completely drain the capacitors before removing the PSU from the computer case. Then, do NOT touch the contacts on the inside of the PSU with your fingers or any tools.

Measure the wires on the PSU to determine how much you'll need. Measure a group and multiply by the number of wires in that group then add all of that together.

You'll need to decide for yourself what looks good to you. I'm one of the few around here that doesn't like the look of individual sleeved PSU's. I tend to use larger diameter sleeve and put 4 to 6 wires in a sleeve. I think it looks better, but that's just me. I appreciate the artistry of the people who can do an excellent job of individual sleeving. I just prefer the look of grouped sleeving personally. Some people don't like that look no matter how well it's done so it's impossible for us to tell you which way to go. The consensus is individual, but that doesn't mean that you absolutely have to do it that way. It's your computer so do whatever you like, just try to do it as well as possible. The majority of those that prefer the individual sleeving would think that a great job of grouped sleeve would look better than a poor job of individual sleeving.

I've had the standard sleeving kit, and it was barely enough to single sleeve my 400W PSU.
In fact, I did see that I didn't have enough sleeving for the sata power cable so I started sleeving other stuff (fans) instead, although I did not use any Jumbo sleeve on it.
I think you'd need a lot more than just a starter pack.

Nice pics! However it's sad that the metamerism effect isn't very noticeable as you say

If most of the pictures were under similar light, it wont be noticable.


Also can you please try to not quote more than one photo per post? It clogs the thread. Thanks!

What??? sad???
That is only a benefit for you wink.gif (if you want to take pics of the sleeve)

And I didn't say it isn't very noticeable - it is only not as strong as it is with the purple sleeve.
Get some purple and you'll see what I am talking about biggrin.gif

Grand bleu isn't UV reactive and I think X also isn't but I can't test it - can't find my UV lamp...

Thanks! That was actually done for me when I was building a folding system that never came to complete fruition. It was done in early 2009 with Superhero PET from FrozenCPU. I'd like to see you do a better job with what you have to work with.







If you have anything else you'd like to complain about, please feel free to send me a PM. Otherwise, keep your derogatory comments to yourself.

TEST IT! FIND IT! I'm curious!
