I'm sure at manufacture they attach the sleeving cable before putting the 3-pin connector on at the front.

You could likely do the same but I've never sleeved a cable in such a fashion before. Although it doesn't look too complicated.

Yup it's fairly simple, take off the 3 pin connector and sleaver then put it back on.

This. With heatshrink tubing you can get at Radio Shack or Home Depot or this. I love the PPCS Deluxe High Density Nylon Weave Sleeving. It's supple and smooth, like a really high quality shoelace. Also, lesser sleeving can melt and shrivel under a heat gun (you use that to shrink the heatshrink tubing). This stuff can handle your heat gun. It's all I use.

I've actually heard that restrictive surfaces like dust filters make fans quieter...

So that 1st link is all one really needs to sleeve all ones fans?
Do I have to take the connectors off my fans or does it have a split down the middle so I can easily wrap it round?
Do I really need a special heat gun or can I make do with a hair dryer

TBH I don't know if I really care, does it really matter if I sleeve all my GT/Nidec's?

Nah too much of a PIA, I don't see what the big deal is.
The fans are already awesome as is
Unless someone can highlight a very compelling reason?

Makes them look nicer, no more ugly colored wires flailing everywhere.
