post #741 of 14275
2:1 adhesive has worked great for, just need to give a few seconds to cool or it will pull off while adhesive is still hot. So far, no loose sleeves, as long as you have enough contact w/ the wire-shield. after trial and error, I cut my sleve 1/2" less and use 1/2" shrink pieces on both ends (1/4" split at each end to cover both sleeve and wire). This was not the case w/ my first sleeving experience, used cheap see thru sleeve and 2:1 regular shrink, pulled off w/ slightest tug. Again, ebay has several sellers w/ 4:1, 3:1, and adhesive shrink, its about $5-7usd for around 4'. Since I have a Fry's ~5 miles away, and another ~40, I just buy it there, its $2.50 for 4x 6" pieces (2ft) 2:1 adhesive shrink

If you sleeve every single cable - 100% visual and design benefit
Therefore I don't understand why some take cheap quality...

Non-Sleeved cables also look good:





But sleeved they will even look better

Xien16, what is that pink light? Someone wants me to build them a computer with a pink theme as well, just I'm hard pressed finding anything "pink". Also, can we see more pictures of that pink project?

either pink LEDs in some plexiglass or EL panel under plexi. either works well. and by plexiglass i mean all forms of acrylics and the likes

I found "clear" shrink that's 4:1 and 1/4". I wonder how that would look Part Number: 75665K72
Wow...that's expensive stuff.

If you're trying to say buy from MDPC, tell him to drop his prices and then we'll talk . Especially considering the only one who will be looking at my sleeving job for the most part is me, wasting money on buying his heat shrink is a bit insane. Besides, I guess I'll just wait for the 4mm to come back in stock at Harbor Freight.

Well it does reduce clutter and help air flow but also good cable management does that as well. The big reason I'm doing it is because with the way OCZ sleeved my PSU, it's hard to get it behind the backplate because it's so fat. This sleeving will make it easier.

Pink leds behind plexiglas
EL panels also need that high voltage source which coud destroy the PC

"someone wants you to do something with pink for them"
Be honest - you want it for yourself
