Cable Sleeving Gallery & Discussion - Page 871

You can solder them on either way, just means the connector at the other end might need turning around if it's an LED connector (LED won't turn on if around the wrong way). Power/Reset can be either way around.

Thank you guys for all the awesome info on sleeving of cables. I have gotten a lot of ideas and can't wait to get started!

OK, so what I'm understanding is that for switches it doesn't matter how you solder them back on. It should work nonetheless. But if its an LED it will not turn off if you solder the wires in reverse to what they were initially, right?

Spot on, but as with all motherboard headers you can just reverse the connector and it'll work just fine.

It seems I ran into another problem. I just desoldered the USB 3.0 headers from the PCB so I could sleeve them, however the sata sleeve from MDPC is not large enough to fit over the the metal prongs that protrude from the USB header. The prongs are there to hold it in place on the PCB after soldering is done. Does anyone have any suggestions for alternative sleeves and probably heatshrink as well? I know this sata heatshrink most likely is not going to fit over this connector as well. The sleeving I have is 9 mm when pressed down flat.

Maybe in reading this wrong. Why did you des older the header from the motherboard?

O ok. I assume you're talking about the silver casing of the usb connector. Just for future reference, that's not a header. A header is what you would plug the connector into on the motherboard.

To answer your question, I'm not sure of anything. A more complicated option would be to remove the pins on the other end from the connector, apply sleeving then reinstall connector. I'm not sure if you could find heatshrink to cover the connector and also the sleeving though.

Can't really do anything with the other side of the connector because the other side of the connector is what you see on the right in the picture. That's why I decided to go the other route and desolder the USB connectors from the PCB and go from there.

Ok. I assumed that the mic and headphone connector was for usb. Sorry.

Here is an old thread that might help you out.
