What you need to do is follow the molex video guide I made (link in my sig) for the section on removeing one of the wires off of the double wired pin so that you just have a single wire again. I know its for molex pins but it will work all the same for the eps pins (its important to clean it up right otherwise it wont turn out)

Then find a place on the single wire that will be behind the case and hidden (most likely close to the psu side but in the back of the case) and make a split in the cable and solder in the other wire you removed earlier, making sure to keep the cables the same original length.

Make sure to solder it good and make sure its heatshrunk well. (I prefer to shrink it after sleeving it, but I also put a longer piece of thick HS over the mdpc shrink for looks and safety. You may shrink the split pull the sleeve over it and shrink it again as well.) Otherwise its pretty much sleeving as usual other than the split which shrinking all the outer ends first and then pulling the sleeving tight on all ends and then shrinking it at the split.

If you have any questions please feel free to pm me. I have a video guide for it in the works.

Thanks for the tip! I'll be sure to work on it when I get my sleeves... lol

Wont that terminal touch the side panel and short. Seems dangerous, I'd be too nervous.

Just finished my 24-pin!!! Man, I'm so proud of my work! Although, I might have to fix the heatshrink. I'll post a picture as soon as I can.

Thanks again for the help guys! Now I'm just waiting for my FT02 to arrive biggrin.gif

Here's my sleeving tools. biggrin.gif PM me if you need instructions to make them. I have:

Lutro0 tool available from the amazing Lutro0 himself. smile.gif (What a great guy!)
2 staples sanded at the ends, straightened, and soldered together, covered in heatshrink.
A nail that was filed flat at the end, and then drilled out, also covered in heatshrink pieces.

If the terminal is set right the case side wont touch it and shouldnt be able to. Also if the case side is painted it has at least a little buffer if you were to somehow happen to bump it, but again if its placed right in a case it shouldnt be an issue.

Thanks for the kind words and being willing to show others how to make those tools. thumb.gif

Gentlemen (and ladies)...

I present to you n00b sleeving by me, Kevin! Pardon the picture quality redface.gif

That was a lot of work but it was pretty fun! Lessons learned:
1. Buy pre-cut shrink.
2. Try not to prick your fingers with staples.
3. Don't get the lighter too close to your fingers.

I also wanted your opinions on the 24-pin... what do you guys think about the blue? Originally, my intentions were to include blue for some contrast but as I began sleeving the other cables, I went with all black. headscratch.gif

Now, what the heck do I do with the leftover sleeve? tongue.gif

I think that because you're going into dark colors, you will have more success with doubling the amount of blue if you have it in the sides. It's very hard to simply add only one or 2 wires and have a good contrast when the main color is dark.

Leftover sleeve? Put it in a box, buy more computers, sleeve more!

Also try with a heatgun, makes more even results.

If your hands hurt too much, take pliers and hold up the sleeve while heatshrinking!

It's a very clean/even job.
You might want to have the heatshrink more into the connector itself, you'll have less chance of it sliding.

Great job on your first (?) job!
