I even addressed your particular units 2 posts above; the caps on the wires are actually there to reduce or negate the whine exhibited by some GPU's. That's why they're only on the PCIe lines.

With my unit, I've known for a fact that it does help with the GTX 200 Series GPU's.

Fair enough, sorry to be such a bother but I'm the "safe than sorry" kind of person. I guess I'll just have to figure out a way to make them less of an eye sore. Thanks.

G'day folks

Finally got around to starting up sleeving project. Done both PCI-e's atm, must say, they're looking good for a first time >)

Firstly, my weapon of choice (Standard auto electrician equipement smile.gif)
Heatblower for actually shrinking the heatshrink (doesn't burn the nice white HS), flame for a quick burn of both ends of the sleeving (i find the blower makes the ends expand and melt into a weird shape)
dscf0530t.th.jpg dscf0531l.th.jpg dscf0532e.th.jpg

dscf0534b.th.jpg dscf0533w.th.jpg

Start off with the ugly old Corsair sleeving (Glue heatshrink :S) Depinned and primed! (Depinning was a ***** until i worked out the staple method, now it takes like a minute to depin the whole plug tongue.gif)
dscf0501t.th.jpg dscf0516v.th.jpg dscf0528.th.jpg


Sleeving on, heatshrink applied (took a few goes to work out the perfect spot so the pin would actually go into the connector once done)
dscf0542.th.jpg dscf0575w.th.jpg dscf0576r.th.jpg

Doing the "+2" portion of my 6+2pin PCI-e connectors, could have heatshrinked the whole thing but i think this turned out better smile.gif
dscf0585j.th.jpg

And done biggrin.gif
dscf0586l.th.jpg dscf0588d.th.jpg dscf0589a.th.jpg
dscf0595q.th.jpg

Quick shot with the 2 sleeved cables up against one of the original cables (TX750 has 4 PCI connectors, only sleeving 2 as i only need 2...for now)

dscf0593f.th.jpg


What do you think? Up next, the 24pin ATX and the 8pin (or 4x4 in my case) EPS connector

Also did the black Sata cables that come with Corsair 800D (for the hotswap bays), done in MDPC-X Sata sleeve/HS, look good too smile.gif Still gotta sleeve a Red sata cable for my DVD drive though

cheers

[edit] please note that the sleeving may look a little "loose" on some wires as its not pulled tight, the other end (psu side) hasn't been heatshrinked yet as i intend to put all of the PSU wires into 1 big black sleeved bundle (or several small bundles), make it a bit cleaner and hide the wires in the bottom of the case, they break out into individual white sleeves about half way along each wire

You already got the answer. Either snip it at the base or somewhere in between or remove the caps.

Do whatever Tator Tot says to do. He probably knows more about it than all of the others posting in that thread combined and then some.

Alright so I finally read through this whole thread and after being oblivious to the differences in sleeving I think I've finally decided that MDPC is right for me and before I order I had a few question
1. What should I order for something like this? (extensions for fans and fan cables)
2I9ih.jpg
2. What the hell do I do about colors? apparently I was retarded and managed to get blue cathodes and blue ram with my red motherboard. Now I have blue stickers on my corsair psu and 580 gtx (found the image for changing the color of the sticker for the 1000 watt psu. I don't have enough cash to go out and switch to corsair Dominator GT so it matches if I were to get red and black.

Here is what it looks like with my 480 installed:
Y9lCX.jpg

Here is what it looks like currently with 580 (sorry it's not pretty and I couldn't get it to look good with cathodes on atm)
PJL95.jpg

Basically its either red and black or AQUAMARINE-BLUE and black.. Any help would be appreciated biggrin.gif

Was also thinking of modding that flashing red E to be blue... lol

PS I was thinking about copying this

I think you would want to use the USB sleeve for that. It's smaller than the SATA sleeve and larger than the single wire sleeve. You could possibly fit them all in the small sleeve but it may show the colors of the wires behind it.

I'd say go blue and black. (or blue and gray or white wink.gif)You won't even see most of the motherboard's red (sucks that it uses so many red LEDs though) and you can always replace that without much loss of $$ as well.
