Since your PSU doesn't have one, the wire won't do anything.

So yeah, as long as it's the same gauge, you can swap it.

Anyone have any recommendations for a heat gun? What temperature would be best? And does anyone have any tricks (like some sort of insulating tape to protect the sleeve next to the shrink or something)

That is the one I purchased, it has two speeds. It has served me well, although when I bought mine it was 15 shipped =/

As for tips, I always just went is sweeping passes, shrinking a little bit at a time and giving the plastic a small ammount of time to cool down so I didnt melt it.

I use the cheapest heat gun. OZITO

and by the way, you can use masking tape to protect the platic plugs.

I wouldn't be worried about the plugs at all to be honest. The sleeve starts to tarnish way before the plugs get hurt. Not to mention, you generally don't shrink near the plugs at all, your finished wire plugs into the plug only once fully sleeved/shrunk.

A little comparison of FTW sleeve to MDPC sleeve.

The weave is a bit more dense in MDPC - about 4:3; within a certain distance between my thumbs, I can see 8 repeating patterns in MDPC while seeing 6 in FTW. The filament is larger, though I cannot measure them since I do not possess a dial caliper, but it gives the FTW sleeve a softer look to them which blurs out the shadows (see pictures) MDPC is noticeably a smaller diameter when in rest (a good thing) however FTW expands about 1/8" more. I took a video comparing how much light is let through each, will upload it tonight. Pictures will also be up around 9pm EDT.

I only had aquamarine to compare with, while B-Magic and Royal blue would have been a better comparison, but the FTW color choice looks pretty damn good. The MDPC orange is MUCH more striking in person compared to the FTW sleeve. It is UV-reactive as well. It's similar to, say FTW being a pumpkin or a bit duller than the orange wires attached to a PSU, and MDPC being more manmade, when seen in a warning sign or similar.

The whites are very comparable. They're almost exactly the same shade of white. However, with the thicker material in FTW, it makes it seem like it's less white. I'm not sure why, but it says "vanilla frosting" while MDPC says "cloud".

The FTW shrink is a smaller diameter with a thicker wall, and a 3:1 shrink ratio versus MDPC-X's 4:1. They are cut to the same length as the MDPC-X pre-cut heatshrink, however the cuts are imperfect, slanting a bit to one side, not at a right angle. I have not sleeved any cables with it yet, but I would be pretty hesitant unless I had no option.

Also to note, at least with the small test size, the sleeve came in a small container that made it curve with a smaller radius, and also has a 90 degree turn in it at the end. I haven't ordered a large quantity though, so hopefully that comes fully circular similar to MDPC-X. I cut both samples with the same cable cutter (Park Tool) and no burning.

Again I'll get the pictures up around 9.
