PSU Sleeving

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am going to attempt to sleeve my first PSU but I have no idea how many feet of sleeving I need. For the ATX power I will sleeve each wire individually, so I will need quite a bit of 1/8. I will sleeve almost every cable in my case including the fan 3-pin wires/SATA cables. How many feet of 1/2, 1/4, and 1/8 sleeving do I need? As for heatshrink, I'm not sure which sizes to get either.

My advice is measure twice cut once.

I would just buy one of those 24 pin power extenders and sleeve that it will save a bit in $$ and you can do the same for the 6/8 pin PCIe cables and the 4/8 pin mobo power.

Also you should only have to measure one of each length of cable you want to sleeve and do multiples of how many you require they should all be the same length.
Another point order about 2 foot more than you way need just to soak up any mistakes you may make.

Just measure the various cable lengths and multiply by the number of wires.

My cables for PCI-E are 18 inches, so I just did ( 18 inches * 6 wires * 4 PCI-E cables ) / 12 inches in a foot = 36 feet.

Once you have figured out what you need, I would add like 10% for error / testing. Its a lot of work, so don't be surprised when it takes 6-10 hours to finish the job. I just finished up my sleeving with nylon multifilament (I won't recommend it unless you really like the look, its a pain in the backside to work with.)

Good luck!
