Cable Sleeving Gallery & Discussion - Page 578

post #5771 of 14314
I'm working with some MDPC-X sleeve now and it's frustrating me. I pull it as tight as possible and it slips back out. Going to give it another go today. I have a tremendous amount of perspicacity and it's not like I don't know how to do it...but for some reason it keeps slipping out of the shrink. Grrrrrr:sozo:

Make sure the heatshrink goes into the housing while its still warm!

Doing that. I'll get back to you on what happens in Round Two of CyberDruid versus the PSU.

My guess is I am overdoing the "stretch the sleeve as tight as possible" part. I have some strong fingers...and I get that sleeve so tight and rigid the cables are almost inflexible. The slightest bend and POP goes the sleeve out from under the shrink. Maybe I just need to relax a bit...

Or you just have to cut it a little bit longer so it will not be to tight when you stretch it tongue.gif

Close, but my method is somewhat more involved, both material wise and detail wise. thumb.gif

Im not about to spit advice out because I have no idea your sleeving methods, however I will extend my hand of help if you would like it. Just shoot me a PM and I will help you figure it out. I can however say I have those things super tight and they have not ever slipped out on me, so im sure its a simple fix. wink.gif

Yup I think you've answered your own problem, I'd say your pulling the sleeve way too tight. I'm new too sleeving as well, maybe this guide will help (depending on the look your after), if all else fails pay someone to make you some extensions biggrin.gif

I'm getting some acceptable results now. Very time consuming. Back is killing me from sitting at the bench, I usually stand all day.

sleeve027.jpg Got a little bit done and then it was time to get the kids off the bus. After that not much PC stuff happens around here..

Not thrilled with how Corsair has their modular cables laid out...2 plugs at the PSU, split wire from those two plugs to one pin on the mobo plug, all different gauge wires, only 23 wires in the 24 pin plug...just stupid. If ever there was a PSU that you would want to use a 24 pin extension on this would be the one (ATX 1200),

Not to mention weighted PCIe cables, I guess I'll just end the sleeve before the weight. Can't see wrapping a sleeved wire around it...

I think that you have to move the heatshrink a little bit more to the sleeving..thats why you have the issue!

Those weights are ferrite beads (most of the time or caps) and most of the time can be taken off for a cleaner result (but if they are caps I would leave them). Tator Tot can come in here and confirm. thumb.gif Also for stronger/cleaner results you will want the sleeve right up if not a little bit into the connector, that allows more surface area for the heatshrink to grab onto. I wish you luck on your sleeving adventure CD, its kinda crazy when you just start. tongue.gif

 AX1200 just uses ferrite beads, they don't have caps on the cables. 

 

So you can take them off without an issue. 

 

The only PSU that really needs the caps on the cables is the Antec True Power Quattro 1200w. Silverstone uses capacitors on their Strider Series of PSU's on the PCIe cables, but they don't have  to be there.
