I hate double pins...... hold on i'll show you how mines turned out rofl.

450

Ahahahahaha, It goes from Sleeved black para > Tie Wrap -> Purple wire -> Tie Wrap -> Paracord

Yes, Your probably saying "well why didn't you do it in one continuous peice?

well...... You see... I took a pin from another connector.... and it got stuck tongue.gif. Doh! moment for me....

Guess its time for extensions for me tongue.gif

old but:

spent like 13 + hours on this one 24 pin http://www.overclock.net/gallery/image/view/album/146848/id/718048/sort/display_order

Used: 50 FT of black and 50 FT of blue on just the 24 pin o___O how? Not sure.

450

Got it heatshrinkless but :T, I screwed up multiple times. (( also there is slack, because I didn't want the sleeve top pop out, especially that two pin rofl ))

450

Yes, I know its un-uniform, why? the dumb designer decided to "twist" the pins around each other like a braid ........ The more you think about the idea, the dumber it sounds.

This is what it looked like when I had to sleeve them (( note: I organized the "tangle" shown below when I sleeved it))

536


and
after I sleeved them.

While picking up some heatshrink at Frys, I saw a soldering iron that has a blade to cut rope. I'm sure this is ideal for nylon rope but will it cut cleanly through paracord? I have yet to fire it up but I would rather return unopen if its useless for cutting paracord. Here's what I got:

Wermad you will just want to use a regular straight edge snip, this will give you a clean cut and then you can hit it with a lighter to get rid of the fray, if you use a heat knife all you will do is melt the crud out of it.


Also

Since the last late night session went so well, I will be doing another one right now, with my first impressions on Bitspower sleeving and heatshrink.

I will share my findings in this status update as well as in the form of a Video in an upcoming update.

All information will be added to my guide located at: http://www.overclock.net/overclock-net-artisans/1122053-lutro0-customs-sleeving-tool-tutorials.html

Ill be getting a crimper, pin removers, and possibly heatshrink from MDPC, unless I can find a molex branded crimper that isn't really expensive. I would get the MDPC sleeving too, but I need some sleeving that can expand quite a bit, and i'm not sure if MDPC is capable. It needs to at least expand enough to sleeve all the wires in a 4 pin molex cable with one sleeve. I'm also interested in FTW V1 sleeving since it's 0.20C/Ft shipped right now, and It seems to have a larger ID, so I would assume it would expand more. If it can sleeve an 8Pin, then I would be very happy, and ill just get larger ID sleeving for 24pins.

 

And is there anything else I should get from MDPC? I can ship to Germany if needed to reduce the cost, then pick it up when I go in the summer.

I tried it anyways and it didn't work. Seems like this iron does not get hot enough to melt paracord (950°F/510°C iron). Still, I needed a new soldering iron so I'm keeping it biggrin.gif.

New psu should be arriving this week and I'm a bit excited to see how para cord turns out. This time around I will be doing single wire sleeving as opposed to paired wires as I've done with all my psu(s) except the first.

FTW v1 sleeving is very poor for single sleeving, there is a reason they did a version 2 tongue.gif. I would highly recommend not buying it for single sleeving. However if you are doing bundles it may work fine. If you are purchasing from mdpc, I would just get the sleeve from them being you are making an order anyhow.

But that would all depend on what your method of sleeving will be, are you going to single sleeve or are you going to bundle sleeve?

Finally finished my 24 pin cable. My fingers are so sore right now.

I'll be doing all the wires of a connector with one sleeve. But I'm not sure If I'll bother re-sleeving the PSU, so I think I would only need to sleeve up to 4 pin molex cables, with the majority being 3pin fan cables and extensions. Eventually I will try making some custom length PSU cables, so I'll buy some stuff ahead of time to save on shipping. Let me know what will be the cheapest sleeving that will get the job done(keep the wires together), not too difficult to use, and doesn't melt or tear easily. I don't care if I can see the cables through the sleeve.

 

And I may get adhesive heatshrink instead of the MDPC stuff if it's cheaper. Could you tell me the pros and cons of it?

I'm confused? The X-Series already has a factory single sleeve over the wires, why would you want to redo it just to look basically the same?

Also the adhesive heatshrink has some good uses, from what I hear to tends to be somewhat "messy" however for a bundled single sleeve it probably wouldn't be horrible.
