Sleeving from furryletters - Page 2

post #11 of 38
PET is the absolute WORST sleeve you can get. VERY poor coverage. Clean Cut from Furry Letters on the left and PET on the right. It appears a bit exaggerated due to being stretched over a straw instead of wires, but it really does look that bad. If you want colors other than the Clean Cut Black your only choice for quality aside from MDPC-X is the Premium from KoolerTek or Kobra from FrozenCPU. The KoolerTek and FrozenCPU is the same stuff.

Thanks Papa for that pic. I didn't realize it looked even close to that terrible!

I found this pic in another modding thread:

Link to Sleeving

Not sure how the other colors look, but if you buy 50ft it's only $15!

And 50ft is only worth about $1. It's just as bad as the Pet in the pic I posted. Not worth the money or the effort in my opinion as it looks so cheap.

You can also buy it directly from Barry although it seems that he lowered his eBay prices so he might lower his direct prices as well. I'll email him just to get an update but here's the thread so far.

http://www.overclock.net/other-hardware-mods/737210-great-news-furryletters-sleeving.html

Also, the PET is crap. If you want decent colored sleeving, you're pretty much stuck with MDPC or Kobra. Koolertek.com has the cheapest prices on the Kobra sleeving although to be honest, it's insanely expensive. And I do mean insane, whoever thought of this pricing is just trying to milk it for all it's worth but the quality of it isn't even close to Clean Cut or MDPC and they are cheaper. It used to only be $0.19 a foot and then it wasn't bad at all as an alternative to MDPC but now that it's as expensive as it is, MDPC isn't that much off.

At Koolertek.com it's $0.59 a foot for Kobra 1/8th sleeving.

http://www.koolertek.com/computer-parts/pc/premium-high-density-cable-sleeving-1-8-8-colors-available-195p1964.htm?atc=1&idproduct=2031

Brings you to $59.00 for 100 feet and you haven't even bought heat shrink tubing or paid for shipping yet. Shipping for me is $6.35 for Priority Mail USPS.

http://en.mdpc-x.com/mdpc-sleeve/sleeve.htm

At MDPC, it's $26.75 for 30 meters of sleeving (20.04 euro's and current currency conversion rates) and $12.08 for shipping charges.....no contest there that MDPC wins. This is only with colored sleeving though.

The main advantages to the Kobra now that the price has gone up is if you only need a few feet of it to sleeve a few fans or something like that or you need it in a hurry in the US.

Sure you can. The yellow wire sticks out like a sore thumb. I don't see how you can miss it. But hey, it's your computer. If you think it looks okay and you like it then go with it. Don't let someone talk you out of what you want. All we can realistically do is warn you of the potential pitfalls of the various types of sleeve.

Oh god you're right. It's a little hard to tell on the small wires cuz of the camera, but the big sleeving is obvious. Maybe I'll just buy a little bit of several types of sleeving and save every noobie some time
