Sleeving help. What sleeving?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am going to sleeve 9 fans and was wondering how much sleeving i should get. I think 2 feet per fan would be safe but im also not sure how much heat-shrink to get and how big it should be. I was thinking about getting this sleeving:

But is that too big for 3 fan wires?
Any thoughts?

I've got the clean cut and it works well for my usage. I just put all three of the fan wires inside it and just pulled tight and heat shrinked the ends.

However, you'll definitely want to be sure that you get some of his 3:1 heat shrink tubing for the best tight fit.

I believe, his 3:1 heat shrink tubing only comes in 3/16th (which is the perfect size for the 1/8th Clean Cut) but double check. Yeah kits would be better but realistically, all you need is sleeving and heat shrink tubing. Sorry for the late reply.

Cable Organizer has a nicely packaged 2:1 160 piece kit for $9.72 IIRC. Yea its 'only 2:1', but i used it in my last two builds and its very nice and works great.
