For anybody who has used 1/8 clean cut, what kind of heat shrink did you use? I found a place that sells 3:1 stuff at 1/8, 3/16, and 1/4 for pretty cheap. I read 1/8 is too small so I'm trying to decide between 3/16 and 1/4. I'm thinking 1/4 to be on the safe side since it's 3:1.

I really want to sleeve my PSU, but I've heard that Corsair sends you replacements when they break so I don't want to void the warranty.

3/16 is what you need and the 3:1 will per perfect. Also, how cheap is the place that you're buying it? Btw 3/16 fits snuggly over the 1/8th Clean Cut

I'm not 100% on this but it should be that as long as you don't open the PSU, you'll keep your warranty. So you can sleeve up to the part where the wires go inside the PSU with no worries. I would honestly send an email to Corsair and ask them if you can resleeve the PSU without opening it (specify that) and would it void your warranty.

You could always sleeve extensions, and hide the unsleeved wires behind your case.

Here's a walkthrough of the custom tube-sleeved cabled that I did up for my Project: Threshold build:

Thursday 4/1/2010

Started sleeving with the 24-pin ATX connector:


labeled all the wires with wire tags:





mr. molex, say hello to molex remover:







cover the bunch of bare molex pins with a bag:




and shove it into the sleeving, or in this case black silicone tubing




and out they come:





cut 24 4" pieces of 1/16" expandable sleeving




and slide it onto the ends of the wires:





heatshrink the ends of the sleeving, or in this case, I used black electrical tape (yes I got a bit lazy, and I didn't have any 1/8" heatshrink at the time)





and heatshrink over the silicone tubing and sleeving:





pulled off the electrical tape and re-did the 24-pin connector with black heatshrink tubing:




2x 8-pin EPS 12v connectors





4x 6-pin PCI-E connectors:





burnt the midnight oil and got my Zippy 1200w completely sleeved in black silicone tubing

Thanks for the info. How snug is it though? I don't want to be stretching it to get it over the sleeving lol. It's $0.84 a foot with no tax so I thought that was pretty good for 3:1 stuff but I haven't really shopped around.

PM me about pricing on 1/8" and 3/16" heatshrink tubing - I have 25ft spools of both and don't plan on ever using all of it, and I guarantee I'll give you a better deal than anywhere online


1/8" won't fit over 1/8"

3/16" will slide right over the top of 1/8" sleeving and give you a nice tight shrink
