Just spent all day building cables and sleeving them.. I used 2.06mm 16awg Eco wire with a rating of 26/o.25 and mdpc sleeve..

Had to match my Sabertooth board!

It is however my first attemp and I'll be perfecting a second try as soon as my fingers heal.. wink.gif

Sorry for the bad phone pics..

Heres mine....more in the log in my sig. Thanks Lutro0 and Nils smile.gif





Hope you guys like them. I am getting some more stuff in the next few days and hopefully the cables will be straighter as well by then.

How do you guys use soldering irons to do heatshrinkless paracord? I keep burning my fingers over and over again on the wire.

Use a BIC lighter instead

I have been using a lighter the whole time, i thought its harder to burn yourself using the soldering iron?

Some very nice work here, very glad I finally joined up. smile.gif

This is the primary cable harness for my current build. What's missing here is the GPU
power delivery, which was already mounted in the case when I took this picture.

I'm using 16 AWG Silicone wire with a diameter of 3.1 mm, paracord in tan and black and
black 0.25 mm (0.01" ) Nylon thread for the lacing and tying down the sleeving at the wires'
ends.

The advantage of the Silicone wire is its better temperature resistance (200 C for
the one I've bought) as well as chemical resistance (not that that should be relevant
for a PC wink.gif) and its extreme flexibility (which can also be a downside, depending on your
preferences, but personally that's the original reason I chose this wire). Normal PVC
wire is usually rated to something between 80 C and 105 C (at least the one used
on the PSUs I have laying around here) . This is important for the sleeving technique
I'm using because using it on PVC wire actually melts off the wire's insulation (I've tried
it out), whereas the Silicone is rather unimpressed.

Inside the case, it will look more or less like this in the end. There's still some tidying
up to do, but you get the idea. You can also see the GPU harness in this pic. It's tied
to the case's top with waxed cotton cord.

I had to devise a new technique for the sleeving because there's no room inside the
connector for both the sleeve and the wire and I really didn't want to use heatshrink
to fix the sleeve to the wire. This is a close-up of the end result before painting the
wire's end and the bit of paracord sticking out black. More pics in my build log.

Looks like you done a great job. Only thing I can comment on is the color scheme which doesn't really fit the setup. Not meaning to sound harsh or anything. thumb.gif
