No idea, sorry , thats not my area of expertise (ask me about tubing biggrin.gif).

It's just the normal wire that all D5 pumps have-sorry, poor answer, but id be lying to you if i said that i knew.

OK, if it looks like the wires on this pump, then I'd say standard 16 or 18AWG for the power, and 22-24AWG for the signal wire. Small MDPC sleeve or 2-3mm sleeve of other brand types for individual wire sleeving. 1/4" 3:1, or 3/16" 2:1 shrink.

Or you could use something like the MDPC USB Sleeve with 1/4" 3:1 shrink to sleeve all 3 wires together in one bundle.

What brand of sleeving were you thinking?

Firstly (+1 rep for your help much appreciated thumb.gif)

Yes that wire configuration is exactly-see photos below.


I didnt really have any particular sleeving in mind to be honest-as i said, on the 'plumbing' side of pcs, im on the ball, but when it comes to cables etc, i just buy ready made sleeved extensions etc.

so this will be a first for me, i just want to have the wires not visible through the sleeving, because the wires shall be visible through the Bitspower mod kit as in the photo-i dont want to go overboard and get the best of the best, middle of the road sleeving will do me fine.

Type of pump and wire config:





Examples of Bits Power mod kits with sleeved pump cables (my goal):








Hope this added information has made things a bit clearer-thanks again smile.gif

Well to be honest, I would just hit it with some black clean cut sleeving. It's super tight weave stuff and would work great for this application. For the signal wire I'd use 1/8" sleeve, then 1/4" for the power wires (both wires in one sleeve). 3/16" 2:1 shrink would work fine for the 1/8" sleeve, but you would need to look and see what they have available for the 1/4" sleeve (1/4" shink might work if you stretched it out a little, but might still be too small...).

Not sure if you are near a fry's electronics, but they carry the clean cut in ~20' lengths for $7, below is a link. It's made by JT&T and is great for general purpose sleeving.

Good luck and happy sleeving. thumb.gif

Edit: Stay away from the cheap Flexo-PET sleeving. You can see the wires right through it. It has it's place, but this is not one of them.biggrin.gif

Does anyone have or can take a picture of some mdpc b-magic next to grand bleu?

I'm thinking I should have gone with the grand bleu instead of b-magic for a deeper blue. frown.gif
