Cable Sleeving Gallery & Discussion - Page 695

post #6941 of 14446
Well, I finally ordered some paracord from FTW PC, and labored for about 8 hours over just 14 wires, lol! On my Seasonic X750, I had an extra PCI-E connector that I wasn't using, so I decided to sleeve that first and see how it turned out. This is the first attempt I have EVER made at sleeving, and I am pretty satisfied with the results. It's only one connector, but I think it makes my system look much better! I didn't have any proper tools at my disposal, so I used the staple method to remove the ATX pins (hurt like crazy!), a wooden ruler, scissors, and a light to burn the paracord. For what I had, I think it came out pretty good.

BTW, I have a question for you sleeving gurus: I decided to go shrink-less because I liked the look and using shrink tubing was too difficult for me, but there are four wires in my PCI-E cable that are actually two wires in one connector, sort of like a "y" shape. I couldn't figure out how to do shrink-less sleeving at the base, so on four of my connectors on the PSU side, there is some shrink tubing. Is there a way I can actually do this without shrink tubing? Please let me know! But anyway, here is the fruits of my 8-hour labor, lol:

As I said this was the first time I have ever done this, so I am VERY open to suggestions to improve the look of my sleeving!

Nice stuff there guys...specially Big. BTW dude, which method do you use for the shrinkless sleeving. Like I was saying earlier, I use the heatshrink burn method but am still trying to work out what the exact placement should be to get the right amount of sleeve clinging onto the pin.

i always just got the sleeve to right about here on the pin
450
and just a tip for sleeving with paracord if you have one of these tools
450
and unscrew the screw right here on the smaller side
450
it makes a really nice no-tangle tool to get it through the paracord easily 450

hope that helps:)

Just ordered connectors from FrozenCPU biggrin.gif

I'll be doing custom length cables, might even do white and red cabling straight form the PSU. I'll just have to make some heat-shrinked, soldered connections in the PSU itself to the new cables.
