And we need some more pics in here. Here is some paracord work I have been working on. I plan on doing alot more of them as time permits and in alot of different colors. The only gripe I have is that paracord likes to snag sometimes. So I need to go back and replace the ones that have little snags on them. However, you only see them when you macro it. =P

You can wrap black tape around the metal clips so that the para-cord doesn't get snagged.

Looks good, but those snags look nasty.

Also, no heat shrink?

Ah yes, I use masking take and a few of them still got snagged. But that was more of lutro0 being lazy than anything. Watching tv at the same time doesnt work well for me.

And yea, no heatshrink. I am working on ways to keep prices down on extensions and if we can cut out the cost of heatshrink then why not. I like the clean look as well, and with the way I have done it the cables are stiffer and the sleeving will not move even if pulled.

AlsOooO yes, the snags look terribad. I will end up redoing those cables, but its 2 AM in the morn and I decided to post them anyhow lol.

I like the look of the no heat shrink. thanks for the idea

I am guessing you just need to make the sleeving extra long to insure that it stays in both ends. simple enough.

Well there is a few more steps to it, but Im fine tuning it and me and my wife will be making some sets. It will be great to get her interested in my hobby.

Ok so fixed up the lame wires and some more pics. (more on my guide thread)

Hello guys, its time for me to start thinking about sleeving the cables on my scout to get it finished. But im trying to do it without spending over £50. Now im not sure if that can be done but thats what im in this section for

I have just got a new motherboard, the Asus Sabertooth 990FX which is a military themed motherboard. So i have decided to go with the green and gray colour scheme. So i found these tools and they were £16.45 including p&p from special tech.

Here is the sleeve and the heatshrink i need

Titanium gray 7.95 euros (£6.81)

Combat green 7.95 euros (£6.81)

x2 Pre-cut small black heatshrink 7.98 (£6.84)

Parts total: 23.88 euros (£20.47)
VAT: 3.81 euros (£3.26)
Shipping: 7.00 (£6.00)

Total: £29.73 + tools £16.45 = £46.18

Now will 20 meters be enough for my whole case excluding the 24Pin and the 8Pin which i am not doing? Well i am buying a 30cm 8 pin extension for my cpu power cable and i have got a 30cm 24Pin extension, so those will need sleeving as well because they are the wrong colour.

So will i have enough???? I will be sleeving pretty much everything in my case.

Thanks

Your best bet is to measure out everything and look up the specs on the power supply to get the exact measurement. I have wrote up a guide on my sleeving thread (link in my sig) that will give you the best method for this, its located under the sleeving video guides in the FAQ section.

If you have any questions on it please feel free to send me a pm.
