btw... it's not a custom mouse pad - it's a giant desk pad that I got from a buddy at Office Depot that they use under the keyboards of display computers... it has a clear lift-up insert-a-picture top, and I printed out a high-resolution photo of NES la femme and put it in there

not to mention that the steel jigsaw blades don't bend or break nearly as easily as the prongs on the POS ATX pin removers that everyone sells... I mean come on, they're strong enough to cut through metal while reciprocating 50+ times per second - easily strong enough to remove some lil' punk ass molex pins
Now that is slick. I think I have everything here to MacGyver one of those for myself.

So I am looking to do a sleeving job on my new rig (specs in my sign.) and i need some information that could be helpful, as i am a first timer to the whole sleeving thing.

Firstly is there a significant difference between FlexoPet and the MDPC sleeves ? Which one's are recommended?

Secondly can anyone plz tell me different Dia of Braided sleeve's and Heatshrink Sleeve's needed to do an average Sleeving mod? (That will be sufficient to cover my RIG)

Well 8th inch is the standard that you would need for sleeving single cables. If you get MDPC, I would suggest buying the MDPC shrink because it's 3:1 shrink ratio. Most shrink you will find is 2:1.

MDPC I think is the best but it can be a bit spendy depending on how much you need to do the work. I'm still not done with my system(almost finished though) and I've purchased 60 meters of single sleeve(which is 8th inch) 40mBlack/20mRed 5 Meters of SATA sleeve a number of shrink that I cannot remember off the top of my head(I think 6m of Red and Black single) and 1 meter of Red SATA shrink Not including the thick 2/3 of an inch off branded Sleeve I used to tie everything together at the PSU. The Euro to US Dollar exchange rate is 1:1.5 so you'll be spending $1.50 for every Euro an item is priced at. Which honestly isn't that bad considering the Pound to Dollar ratio is 1:1.80 if Nils were in the UK. Shipping from Germany has come down depending on the size of the Pack you purchase. Base shipping is 9.05 Euro. So figure $15 just for shipping.

Now as to the difference MDPC has the best look in comparison to the other weaves imh

FlexoPet is what $3.34 for every ten feet. MDPC is easily twice that but you get roughly 40 feet(39.47=10m). So for me dollar for dollar it's relatively even in cost. In fact what makes MDPC so expensive is the shipping as the shipping for FlexoPet isn't near $15 because you can get it from Amazon for free if you spend up to the required dollar amount.

So all in all it's what you figure you're willing to spend and then figure is the best bang for your buck.

Family packs are nice but I buy the colors I need. I spent less on the sleeving that way.

LOL, there is a big difference between 3:1 and 4:1, and if its thin walled or not. And 4:1 thin walled is what makes useing MDPC Heatshrink like working with magic! The only reason I mention it is because we want to make sure people have the right information.

I used 3:1 on the whole Katharos Mod, and while it does get the job done, it requires a little bit longer length, and even then it isn’t as secure as MDPC HS.

But yea man way better than 2:1.
post #4528 of 14116
LOL Tru tru.

I just redid the shrink and sleeve on my Molex tool and it looks so much better than it did before. My OCD was workin overtime whenever I picked it up and the other day one of the ends slipped when I was undoing one of the moles from my Controller connectors to remove the excess leads. So you know it had to be done. That's the problem with shrinkin bare tube metal the shrink slips. lol

do people buy the precut lengths of heat shrink from MDPC or buy long tubes and cut it themselves. 15mm seems a little long?

The precut pieces are perfect. And they save you lots of time. I always prefer them over the tube. But that is my opinion.
