Sata size sleeving. I don't think you can apply the shrink-less method on it because the sleeve is too big. He used shrinks and I think it looks fine. smile.gif

Thanks for the reply. I really don't want to go with a heatshrink, so I'll probably tinker. I've not taken one apart yet, so I'm unsure as to whether or not each sleeve has to tuck into its own little 'tunnel'. That would totally blow it out of the water.

The shrink can fit like a glove over the connector - like this - I didn't sleeve this, so I dunno what the sleeve/connector looks like.

I had my Sata data cables sleeved, though I decided to remove them because it just doesn't look good with the heatshrink and it's too thick. Simple, black Sata cables look better than sleeved ones. It's also easier to route them through the back. Just my thoughts on that.

PM'd ya back, but for everyone else as well:

It is 3/8" Ogre Techflex. It is only a tight, multiweave with the larger sizes like 3/8"s and up.

The 3/8" matches the sata sleeve size from MDPC. To my knowledge, there isn't any other colors with black from them. Black with any of the other colors would be great.

Have you seen the BitFenix sata cables? I'm not a big fan of the cables in general, but the sata cables are nice as they have the sleeving going straight into the plastic housing.

Thanks, Rome. Really helpful. I'm going to have to remove a little bit of plastic, but I'm going to experiment with making one without a heatshrink. I've very little better to do. biggrin.gif
post #7927 of 14275
The problem (at least for me) with the bitfenix sata cables is their length. They're only 30cm...
post #7928 of 14275
Anyone else tried the Akasa Pro Slim sata cables? In one of these threads Big Elf linked to cpachris's build for a quick tutorial. You can buy them 50cm then remove one of the connectors, cut the ribbon cable with scissors to any length you need, sleeve them, reattach the connector, then heat the shrink to set the sleeving. You can use the small MDPC sleeving and 1/4" shrink since there's no need to wrap the shrink onto the connector.
The connectors are crimp style. You have to be very careful with them, I managed to destroy one of the connectors when the little "teeth" that bite into the cable bent.

Even if you don't sleeve them they are pretty cool, very small and thin.
post #7929 of 14275
I wanna get one of these proslim cables but its 15$ on the bay :/
post #7930 of 14275
@mandrix: I bought them and cut them to length. Was pretty easy biggrin.gif Although I destroyed the first one^^
