I just recently did my MCP35x2 about a week ago with paracord. I ended up shortening the wires because they give you so much that I didnt need. But instead of putting on Molex connectors, I put on some mini taminya connectors. Males and females, reason is because I cant stand the Molex 4 pin connectors for just 12v.

But as for sleeving. I had done it once before and I wasnt happy with the job. I did what you did and just put heatshrink on the wires where they come out of the pumps. It was fine at first but ended up pulling away from the pump and you could see the wires. I also indiviually sleeved the wires for the PWM/Tach sensor at first and didnt like it as well because it just didnt look right.

So I redid it and it came out perfect this time(as with everything with sleeving, practice makes perfect). What I did was took apart my pumps, and tucked the paracord just barely inside the housing so it couldnt come out and I didnt have to use heatshrink. But in order to do that I had to carve out a little plastic from the top housing where the wires go into to make enough room. Kinda scary sounding but worked perfectly(but also voided my warranty by taking apart my pump). Then I did the normal heatshrinkless method with the power cables and crimped on the mini tamiya connectors, which I had painted flat black. But as for the PWM/sensor cable, I sleeved both wires together and used MDPC sleeve to "stealth" the 4 pin fan connector(which I replaced with a black one) by shrinking partly on the connector and the rest on the paracord holding it in place.

Wish I would of taken some pictures when I was done. It turned out perfect IMO and I was very happy with it. After I did the first sleeving job on it I was disappointed.

I have (had) my dual MCP35x pumps rewired and use a single mini tamiya connector for power. (one of my pumps died and I'm waiting on the replacement). Actually I built a harness with female mini tamiya connectors behind the motherboard tray on my rig and wired up the pumps a few months ago.
Like you I despise the huge 4 pin Molex and when I can sub something smaller like the mini tamiya I do.

I cut the long wires to the pumps and combined the pwm wires and picked up the rpm wire from one of the pumps to pin to a 4 pin female connector for the Aquaero, and I combined the power wiring to the mini tamiya connector.

I really like that.

Hey guys, just some sleeving I am doing for Mk0611. Next I have to do the 24 pin and get this stuff sent back to him...I am really liking the color scheme on here thumb.gif

Nice. I thought about splicing the wires together, but decided against it. After seeing yours I am kinda regretting it lol. How did you build a harness for the female mini tamiya connectors, and have any pics?? I looked all over for something like that when I was trying to figure out how to keep it all clean.

I also thought about wiring the two pumps power into a corsair 6 pin connector and plugging them directly into my PSU, but couldnt go heatshrinkless because they only have one 12v lead.

So did they RMA your pump even after you sleeved it and shorten the cables?? If so that would be awesome.

When using paracord heatshrinkless, what do you guys do when you melt the end? I've been pinching it but have found that sometimes they do not like to fit in the connector this way.

You have to get the paracord really tight. And then just barely melt the ends. Some colors(white and some others) are a little bigger than say black or blue. But if you still cannot get it then melt the sides a little bit and then pinch. You can kind of control the shape of the paracord this way to make it fit thumb.gif

Then I better watch some videos on getting the correct length. After I stretch then cut, then put it on and re stretch, I always seem to have too much.
