I'm starting to feel like a Lutro sales rep in this thread, but if you like Paracord Better, I HIGHLY recommend Lutro's Coreless Paracord, also getting his little Paracord threading tool so you don't snag the sleeving. It looks like it was purposely made for sleeving. Alot of Paracord looks like it was purposely made for shoelaces.

I gotta do another buy from Lutro0s shop, may or may not of forgotten to get some pins and a crimper redface.giftongue.gif. I tried some other de pinning tools, they suck the only good ones are what Lutro and MDPC sell, all the other ones I tried either break or cant even reach the damn wings mad.gif and if your really stuck I found standard size paper stable does the job perfectly on ATX pins thumb.gif

The Lutro and MDPC Crimpers most def give the best crimps (In my limited experience...). If you really wanted the best of the best, you should buy the MDPC Crimper and then buy the Die from Lutro, (Sorry Lutro heart.gif ), then you'll have the best of both worlds. MDPC Crimper can't crimp Fat Molex Pins or 16AWG very well. Lutro milled his die, to make it work great with 16AWG and 4-Pin molex's. To make that modification, i think it sacrifices a tiny bit on the smaller guages. But if you were gonna pick one, I'd def choose the Lutro Crimper cuz Nilz tells you right on his website not to use his MDPC crimper on 4-Pin Molex's. The Custom Lutro Die fixes that.

That Dual Headed 4-Pin Molex Remover i linked to, I actually bought from Amazon before i even knew about Lutro's wisdom yet. Pretty much every watercooling/modding website has a version of that Fat Pin Remover. They're all the same. And are absolutely the easiest freaking thing for Molex's. Just push the tool in, right away you hear a click, and the wire comes out.

There's no way that ONE wire shoulda taken you 4 hours. The wire shoulda ripped out of the pin by then. I've had a cpl rip right out of the pin, it happens, that's why we buy Crimpers =) Lutro actually has a great Tutorial Vid about dealing with stuck ATX pins. I think you need to watch it. Lemme find it and i'll post it here if some1 else doesn't first

Also, buy MANY MANY extra pins when you buy a Crimper. It takes practice. I literally learned how to crimp watching Lutro's Crimping tutorial with a bag of pins and my Lutro Crimper. I'm still not great at it, but within like an hour I was capable of making my own cables.

Idk if I should go custom sleeving. PSUS like the AX1200i sell some that look quite good, even tho highly overpriced. EVGA nex1500 also includes some good looking ones, but I want all red. I just think this is going to be too much work on top of cutting/bending acrylic tubing.

HERE'S the link to the tutorial cued up to where he talks about removing pins and how to deal with stuck pins. You should definitely at least check out that section of the vid if not subscribe to his channel and watch em all like i have.

You can always buy extensions too. Buying extensions one time and buying everything you need to get setup for sleeving are probly close in how much you're gonna pay. But all the stuff you buy for sleeving and everything you learn will make it much cheaper in the future. It'll also come out looking much nicer if you do it yourself. The Bitfenix extensions are a good choice too if you'd just rather not deal with the hassle

HERE'S a link to a Corsair Modular Cable Kit in Red. The kit's $84.99 and you have to buy the 24 Pin ATX cable seperate. They give you the option to add it on at the bottom of the screen. The Red AX1200i 24 Pin is $20.99 but it's also out of stock. You could buy the kit and then buy the 24 Pin from somewhere else.

You could also buy THIS

Total Connectors:
1 x (14+10pin) to 20+4pin ATX adapter
2 x (8pin) to EPS/ATX12V 8pin(4+4) connector
6 x (8pin) to PCI-E 8pin(6+2) connector
Price: $119.99

They sleeve it with Kobra Maxcord Paracord. And you can customize by choosing up to 3 colors for the color scheme.

PerformancePCs has the Red Corsair Kit and the 24 Pin in stock
Kit $79.00
Red 24 Pin $19.99

If you want a more custom look, i'd probly go with the Kobra Maxcord Kit from FrozenCPU. It only comes with the necessary cables that'll be around your motherboard. But at least you can choose some color options so it doesn't look like the kit that Corsair sells

I can get the same crimper as MDPC has in Aus im pretty sure, MDPC was a pain the last time i tried to order from there frown.gif. I like how Lutro0 takes the time to mill the crimpers down and make them perfect, good guy Lutro0 anyone? biggrin.gif

Yeah I have the Molex remover, had mine for ages the things awesome so easy to use thumb.gif

nah not one cable I ment the all the cables, still too way to long and shouldnt of been stuck in there that bad, I did check Lutro0s video about stuck cables but it didnt seem to help frown.gif. Like I said I only ever have a problem with the stock connectors once I have them out there fine its just when they've never been out before there a pita mad.gif

I gotta buy a heap of pins anyway, gonna remake all my molex cables and my 8 pin CPU cable, there either to long or to many of the damn double wires that takes up what little space I have... on the back side of my Case Labs SM5 devil.gif

Right o lads, I think I found my way around the Silverstone PCI cables and there capacitors without removing them, this is what I done

So first thing I did was cover the capacitor in black electrical tape



As you can see in both pics the sleeve is all the way up together and its superglued in place, this was the best way I could come up with to deal with the stupid thing without having a heap of shrink



If you think that I did a crap job... well just look at how it was...

I do still have to stitch it all together but for now Im happy with it smile.gif

You can cut those capacitors off tongue.gif I have done with no problem, and Lutro has also said it is fine. There's a cable sleeving FAQ he wrote, somewhere around here smile.gif

Lutro, MDPC-X, and about 20 other Crimpers are either OEM'd by the same company or based of the same base model. But they're not the same crimpers.

Lutro breaks it down extremely well in the OP of the Frequently Asked Sleeving Questions Thread. Expand the "Which Crimpers & Pins Do I Buy" if you wanna see the difference.

As far as whether Lutro's a good guy. I mean I don't really know him personally. He's definitely helped me and half of OCN out on more than one occasion. He's probly the single biggest contributor to the Sleeving Scene and teaching people how to do it themselves. His websites a real good spot to buy sleeving supplies. Prices are very reasonable and he tells you exactly what it is that you're buying. Also, if you have any questions about any of his products, he's on OCN all the time answering people's questions. I like buying from people like that personally. Anyway, if there's something you wanna know about sleeving, i highly recommend you click on that link i gave you and read through the first page of the thread. There's alot of useful info.

Also, from everything I've read on here, most people cut the caps off their SilverStone cables.
Good Luck thumb.gif

Atm Im gonna keep the caps on, might test without them later on but for now I'll leave them until after I've modded/built all my other cables biggrin.gif, I've fried components before so Im a lot more careful now redface.gif

Yeah realized after I said it that Lutro0 did a thing about crimpers rolleyes.gif oops

As far as I've seen Lutro0s really the only guy who really knows what hes talking about when it comes to sleeving I know theres others but they dont go as in depth and detailed in there videos as he does. His shop is awesome normally shipping prices to Aus suck, even up paying nearly double of what you bought in some cases mad.gif I think for all the stuff Im gonna order next time shipping is something like $15 thumbsupsmiley.png cant even get that price IN Aus!

Cable experts, I have a question.

I just picked up a Silverstone Strider Gold 550w power supply. Its very short, and fully modular.

Anyways the cables are 4x as long as they need to be in my Node. I have a set of the Bitfenix alchemy extensions laying around that I will never use and just happen to be the perfect length. Would there be any harm in replacing the female end of the extension with a male end as long as I make sure the wires are going to the right pins and just use them as the cables?
