As far as yours, what tool are you using? I will admit that the seasonics (and some corsairs) can be tricky, but as long as you are using a real molex tool, and are patient, and using the correct technique (tool in - push wire to engage pins in tool - pull wire out while the tool is still in the pin). The sticky ones, I just use a small pair of needle nose pliers and pivot off the connector. If the pin is mangled, I just crimp on a new one.
As far as paracord, it is just another type of sleeving. MDPC and FTW are completely different in that they are braided plastic that expands greatly when you push the ends of the sleeving together. They are much harder to snag on pins, but require a different technique. Watch Lutro0's vids to see the difference.
I personally use paracord as I am a modder on a budget, and I like the matte finish.
Yeah, I use the tools Lutro0 recommended. It can just never get them back in the connector. Getting them out is easy.

Next time my heat gun falls over I will NOT try to catch it. Now repeat 100 times. I will not try to catch it... I will not try to catch it.....
I need to look for or make an adapter for mine to reduce the size of the discharge opening.

that sounds extremely painful lol. 1250F + skin = bacon

Are these a good buy? I can't seem to sleeve my Seasonic x750 without failing hard. I'm having problems getting the sleeve to stay on and also getting the wire back in the connector..I'm a noob frown.gif BTW it's paracord. Is FTW sleeve or MDPC sleeve easier?
Their sleeving is pretty decent, actually. I've heard their work is really good as well, apparently they do shrinkless sleeving on the cables you order from them, but I wouldn't order their shrink as it appears to all be the glue type. I just got some more sleeving from modDIY to do my SATA data cables. I've never seen MDPC sleeving so I don't really have a way to compare but I have no issues with modDIY sleeving other than my poor crimper/skills. I would like to try MDPC one day and see if I can tell a difference but I got tired of trying to connect on my/Nils schedule and just got mine from moddiy instead.
So judging by the sleeving itself I say you would be pretty safe ordering pre sleeved cables from them if the price is right.

I still have a 24 pin I'm sleeving with paracord as time permits. Was able to get a better color match with paracord, but idk, the plastic sleeving just feels so "durable", hard to explain.

I am trying to come up with a good color scheme for my Asus x79 pro with Corsair Vengence blue RAM and XFX 7970s. The 7970s have a touch of red in them, but I don't know that I can get that mixed in well. Any thoughts?

slap a waterblock on the 7970s. wink.gif

Yeah I think i'll purchase it. Maybe some time in the future i'll sleeve my own cables when I feel I can do it lol.
