Basically, it seems like it'd be $20 more expensive to get it done by someone else than do it myself (account for tools and paracord). I kinda want to do it myself, I think I'd rather enjoy that, but I just wondered if it was particularly frustrating or hard to do before I made a decision. How much would I need for just these 4 extensions? I don't want to sleeve the whole psu.

It seems the cheapest places to get extensions is:
24pin $4.97

2 x 6pin pci-e 5.98

8pin cpu $3.99

50 feet paracord $5.95

pin remover $5.74

$26.63


PLEASE be careful of buying extensions from ebay. I have seen 20 guage wire and lots of melting with those from people. Quality is scary when you get factory made extensions.

+1 however the inside row depends on the length of the cable itself and the bend you want on it.

Well the PCI/CPU are rosewill sleeved extensions, they had them cheaper than anywhere else, and the 24 pin is apevia so that's name brand (if oem). I'll make sure it's 18awg.

Couldn't get the paracord from your store because of $50 minimum purchase, so I'll be buying it from linked ebay store once i take a look, in person, at a few blues, to make sure i get the color i want.

So after many years of reading guides and learning from this forum Ive started my own personal system.

The following pictures are my first time sleeving, so any advice on how i could improve would be great =D

I made a jig based on one that Lutro0 had made to cut heatshrink and my dad wanted to improve it so he added the "guillotine" as he likes to call it lol


I ended up buying really lousy heatshrink because I didnt have the cash to get the MDPC heatshrink at the time and figured i could use a smaller diameter 2:1 heatshrink...but as you can see it wouldnt hold the sleeving tight enough =[



So i figured id forget about the heatshrink look and try the heatshrinkless meathod (since that's the only use my lousy heatshrink really had at this point)


And here are my final results so far X3 i still need to "train" the cables

IMO heatshrinkless is the way to go, but you still need to buy heatshrink to do a proper heatshrinkless job, which is ironic lol.

The min is $35 - should not be $50.

And there has to be a min as each package takes a while to pack. thumb.gif

I am curious what everyone uses for wiring. I have some of this in 16 and 18 gauge

http://www.bulkwire.com/wire-cable/stranded-hookup-wire-300v-ul-1007-1569.html

I only plan to create wires for my 8 pin and my sata. Is it OK to use the same gauge as what comes with the PSU since I am making longer cables (in the instance of the CPU cable at least)?
post #9048 of 14328
I had no idea how much SATA power cables suck to sleeve...here are my results. Its not the prettiest of jobs but it will work. Most of the connecting ends will be hidden anyways ;D

Is there a way of sleeving with MDPC heatshrinklessly without having to use heatshrink to achieve it? In lutro0s video he uses heatshrink and then cuts it off, what happens if you don't use the heatshrink and you just melt it as you would with paracord?

cheers
post #9050 of 14328
I dont think that it would turn out right...it would not compress the sleeve ends to make it fit. It would just melt and get nasty. thumb.gif
