Cable Sleeving Gallery & Discussion - Page 9

post #81 of 14577
after 88's post.. i was a bit annoyed with my own sleeving that i went and double checked Brassie's sleeving.

for the 24pin, it is mostly even except for the thick wire. for some odd reason, i needed to wires there and i had to use a thicker sleeving and i got the length a bit off and same with the heatshrink. so for those wires, they are of a different length but i don't want to deal with that again so i'm going to just leave it as no one will see that any way.

but for the 8pin.. man.. i don't know how that happened its soo bad its just ridiculous. i'll be going through those 8 again and redo them to look better.

the SATA wires, GPU cables, and sound card's cables were all ok. so its just the 8 pins that are bugging the crap out of me now. :x

EDIT: i'm actually considering resleeving the GPU cables with monosleeving instead of the 3wire sleeving i have now...

I'm debating or not sleeving my hx650 or not. The cables are already black and they are "glued" together. I just don't know if it's worth it or not.

Also, how do you guys get the heatshrink into the little openings in the connectors? I tried, but couldn't do it. Do you shrink it before you put the pins in or do you do it after?

IMO you should leave the modular cables as they are. The 24-pin and any other ones that cannot be removed can be sleeved by de-pinning them. You have to disconnect the cable from the ATX connector and then put the sleeving and heatshrink over the cable and then put the pin back into the ATX connector.

i ll have a nicer sleeving done soon again too, but i doubt ill waste my time sleeving my 620 hx, as the cables are already decently black i ll have some kinda stuff comming in the next couple of weeks, if i get my am3 rig traded, i wantz i7 back
post #85 of 14577
Yea, I guess I will do that. The ones that are sleeved as a whole are the ATX and the 8 pin for the mobo, the SATA, PCI-E and molex are black cables that are "glued" together.

Good call

Now, do I shrink the heatshrink when the pin is out of the connector or do I "stuff" the heatshrink in the connector and then shrink it?

If you want them all to be at the same level, cut all the heatshrink to the same length, put it on top of the sleeve, and then put all of the sleeved cables into the connector. Then line them up so they're half on the sleeve, half on the cable, make them all level, then shrink 'em.

Alternatively, shrink them right up to the metal part of the pin, making sure every heatshrink you cut is the same exact length. As long as you shrink them at the same location (end of pin) they should be even when you connect them.

And thanks for the rep

yea.. thats a good tip! i actually did it the opposite. i did the back end first when i first started sleeving.. and so the front ends would become uneven... :x (i did the back end first because i wanted to make sure the sleeving was all the way in the PSU. i realize this was a mistake on my part... ><)

Well I tried to shrink it on the pin, but when it came time to plug the pins in the connector they wouldn't go in due to the heatshrink being to big or something.

I guess this time I will line the heatshrink up and then heat them all at once.

you need to leave just about an 1/8th of and inch(maybe slightly more) between the sleeving and metal pin otherwise it wont fit. (this varies with connector)

Here's a few pics from my latest build.









I didn't sleeve all the way into the PSU cause I didn't feel like cracking it open, I didn't have enough sleeving, and you don't see the difference anyways. And I'm lazy.
