yea i looked at FTW pc earlier, but wanted some insurance before making the decision. also wanted to find some LEDs maybe that i can connect to my PSU, so i dont have to hide another box. thumb.gif

also when it says .15 are they saying per foot?

Correct.
Quote:
All prices shown by the foot. Adding "10" to cart will get you 10 ft of paracord. Quantities of 1,000ft or more will be on the spool. Paracord is measured and packed by hand so there may be variances of up to 10%. Please make sure to order a couple extra feet to account for that.

okay thats what i thought, what i have in my cart at this time includes:
100 pre cut black heatstrink* x1
black ftw paracord* x50
green ftw paracord x150
ftw pc power supply tool kit* x1 <---- is this a must have? would it make my job easier?

The FTW PSU kit is awesome. Its the real deal and I have it myself...so much better than staples and hand mades and stuff like that!

Are you using heatshrink on the paracord for a reason? Just curious

I have to say that the crimping tool (HT225D) in that kit isn't ideal for Molex ATX pins. While it will crimp the pins neatly they're not a very robust connection and can be pulled off relatively easily. The MDPC-X crimp tool is more expensive but due to the way that the tool forms the insulation crimp with a 'bite' into the insulation it's a very robust connection.

I have both tools (and others) but only use the HT225D for crimping pins for the 4 pin molex type connector, particularly double wires where it's very good.

Are you using heatshrink on the paracord for a reason? Just curious[/quote]

do people not use heatstrink for paracord? sorry if this is a dumb question lol, never sleeved before! and as for my order is 150f green and 50 f black too much? im wanting to do all green except one black on each connector. i may order the kit unless someone has a cheaper solution tongue.gif
post #7528 of 14314
I'm using paracord without heatshrink wink.gif

As for the amount you need... idk I bought 200ft of each lol
The difference in price is minimal (with how cheap it is) and the worst thing that can happen is running out when you're almost done.
