Shipping to US is $15.00USD
minimum order of 25,00€ ($36.37USD)

For techflex "flexo" brand clean cut (ordered from ebay vendor furryletters):
$5.00USD for 25feet or $0.20USD per foot
Shipping to the US is $2.00USD
no minimum order.


Benefit of murdermod: Availability of colors, smaller diameter sleeving is better suited for individual cables so a sleeved 24pin won't look as bulky.

Benefit of cleancut: Cheap, high availability, larger diameter sleeving can fit over multiple wires without showing color or fans cables without getting bulky.

The pricing quote was from 9/09 so it may have changed since then...


Since 2010 all colors are at $0.32 per foot incl. VAT of 19%.
But people from outside Europe pay and see the prices without VAT once they are registered. Then it is $0.27 per foot, for USA, Australia, Asia etc.

If non-Europe people get a family pack, the per foot price is actually $0.15.

As it is Euro currency based price, the stronger dollar will make it cheaper and cheaper. Greece will create problems for the Euro, and maybe Euro will become even cheaper soon.

I hope my math was informative



And after math, I always enjoy arts

I have a question about heatshrink...

I noticed that Furryletters heatshrink has a 2:1 shrink ratio compared to MDPC 4:1...

How does this effect me?
post #323 of 14491
2:1 - 1/4 shrinks down to 1/8th

4:1 - 1/4 shrinks down to 1/16th

Is MDPC sleeving really worth it?

Ive done a bit of research and clean cut refers to the fray resistant nature of the braiding... So perhaps some of Furryletters colored stuff would have the same weave without the fray resistance of the clean cut.

If the description says "PET" in it, then it's single braid (see-through stuff) and not as high quality as the Clean Cut. The colored braiding from Furryletters is all PET. It may look good, it just depends on what look you're trying to go for.

(in my opinion) if you're looking for colored sleeving, there is no other choice. If you don't mind black and don't need SATA or tube-sleeve then you're better off with Clean Cut.

PET does not mean single braid... it stands for polyethylene terephthalate which is a type of plastic.

The minimum price (for outside of US at least, not sure about inside the US) is 15€

I hope to order some green sleeve from mdpc pretty soon... Will look good with the clean cut black that I already have.

Btw welcome to Overclock.net Dualbrain Nice to see you here.

Thanks for the correction. I'll be looking to use MDPC-X exclusively on my next build as I think it'll be nice to compare products and play with some color.

I wouldn't suggest heatshink with a shrink ratio less than 3:1 for individual cable sleeving.

I purchased:
1/4" adhesive lined heat shrink tubing from ebay vendor genuinedealz. This helps to keep the ends from popping out when flexing the sleeving. Maybe 4:1 would work fine without adhesive lining but I haven't had a chance to test and compare it. I can however tell you that cheap 2:1 will allow the sleeving to slide out of the heatshrink if it is handled too much.

To cover and solder splices from lengthening/shortening wires I also purchased.

0.150" polyolefin heatshrink tubing (26 ft.US $3.25) from ebay vendor furryletters

You can also see in my pics that I used the small diameter heatshrink to hide the wire colors on the plug ends:
