(tried sleeping, but got bored so decided to do some sleeving)

When sleeving goes wrong:
never have your thumb over the cable you are pulling out

Been there man, more times then I would like to admit, and I've been doing it for a while now haha.

Looks great, remember you can always go back and cut the heatshrink offa the wire and reshrink it till you get them all even. You will get the feel of it after practice, dont settle for anything less then prefection. Just takes time and the willingness to use up some heatshrink. If the heatshrink starts to bulge when you are putting it in take it out blow on it a bit and try again - if it still does reheat it up just on the shrink to melt the sleeve some more and then repeat, eventually it will go in cleanly.

If you have any more questions please feel free to ask.

haha, i have got quite a few scratches from this lol

Yeah i know man smile.gif i am pleased with the result, is only the second time i have sleeved a psu, so its not a bad effort i think.
Also, the one that is bulging is one of the 6+2 GPU plus, where i cut the +2 extensions off where i did not need them, and they were soooo hard to even get back in the hole and make em click as it was super bendy, i might order some ATX Pins and re do those ones, as like you said, they bulge !!
Thanks man, will always come to you with assistance smile.gif

i hare seeing sleeving where the heatshrink is 3 times longer than it needs to be, and where all the cables are different lengths, the MDPX-X technique is always the best

Bingo! Keep up the great work man! Double wires are always hard, so I try to rewire or plan out my systems do that they don't need to have a double connector like that, or I will use an extension so that the double is not in view.

mind elaborating? so I can just take one wire, crimp on 2 ends and stick it into matching places?

What I did with my power supply is remove one wire from the cable and replace it with the new wire in the exact same position the original wire was in. This way you don't mix up the positioning.

Hey guys, I was sleeving my Corsair HX1050 24Pin connector when I broke 2 connector heads right off. I figured something was wrong when I needed extra force to pull those two out >.>.... Anyway I broke a square head and a pin that has an arch head from the 24 pin, the two pin heads are also used in the PCI-E cables identical to the sort of which I've broken in the 24 pin. I tried to show the pins in the picture pasted. 400

My question is can I just get any standard ATX Female pins ( I assume it has a sqaure shape) to recrimp it on and make it work? Or do I need special pins?

You can use standard female ATX pins and recrimp those without a problem.
