Expect some updates to the OP soon with more tips (:
Will do . My dad has a real heatgun and I am a perfectionist. I am sleaving a modular 650watt seasonic because the modularness will make taking apart the rig MUCH MUCH easier. Minnow is my new project which aims to put a q9550 and a fermi in a mini-itx case. I needed custom cables.
Wahoo!

Ah, I was thinking of selling my rig and building an ITX system just for the fun of it, but couldn't really justify it. best of luck!

Posted about a week ago. So hopefully soon.

How long should the heatshrinks be?
Also anyone know where i can get some inexpensive 24 pin and 6 pin extenstions? I know its lame, but unless I can get a modular Im using them!

heatshrink should be around .5-.6 inches. Too much and it looks crap, too little and it might not stay attached. Play around with it though to try to get the best for your needs.

My usual method for 6/8-pin PCI-E, 8/4-pin auxiliary, and 24-pin cables is to cut a 1/2" of heatshrink to put over the wire and 1/2" of heatshrink to hold the sleeving. The 1/2" of heatshrink just over the wire prevents the heatshrink, holding the sleeving, from slipping or moving as much. It also prevents any of the color of the wires from being seen at all. For the first layer of heatshrink, the red line is were I place the right side of the heatshrink:



Before I do any of this I put tape over the pin so it doesn't tear the sleeving. I put on the sleeving. I put the first layer of heatshrink on and shrink that. I put the second layer of heatshrink on that holds the sleeving but don't shrink it yet. I put the pin back into the connector and shrink the second layer of sleeving. Shrinking the second layer after I put it in the connector makes it as even as possible with the rest rest of the wires. There are of course different methods to do this but this is my favorite method. The end product looks like this:



Also remember to label each wire and the connector so you know were they go.

For extension cables I'd try your local computer shop. I got my 8-pin extension cable from the local computer shop Digilink. The Best Buy and Office Max by me in Michigan didn't have any. If you have a Micro Center or Fry's by you I'm sure they would have them too.

Thanks guys. The extensions were a little more expensive then I thought. I think it would be worth it to sell my psu and try to get a used 750/850HX.
Yay for spending more money! Only $450 more then I planned in the first place

For the first layer of heatshrink, the red line is were I place the right side of the heatshrink:

My method is very similar to this (exact same location) but I've found that for this end of the wire, the heatshrink is normally strong enough to hold the sleeve if only one piece is used. I shrink this side first, then use the above mentioned 2-piece process for the other end of the cable to hold the sleeve on just the wire.
If you shrink before putting the pin back in the connector, you can normally fit the shrink inside the connector as well, which looks neater.

Note: I didn't put as much effort into this as I should have. Next time, I'm rigging a pair of scissors to cut all pieces exactly the same length. The shrink being slightly different lengths is much more noticeable when the shrink and sleeving are different colours.

Also, never underestimate the effect of simply organising wires by bundling them:

And of course, play with it. Much of mine was simply trial and error. Experiment and find the best solution for yourself.

Yeah one layer of heatshrink is usually the way to go. As long as it's quality heatshrink of the right size it'll hold on there when properly heated, and looks the best. If you want it to look even remotely close to the perfection of xien's sleeving, you need to line up where the sleeving ends to the spot right before the wire connects to the housing, and heatshrink to 1mm past the crimp point of the pin and about .25 inches over the sleeving.
