IIRC MDPC-X sells 4:1 heatshrink.

Upgrades which are in consideration: U2713HM | Samsung 830 256GB | Keycaps | Sleeving | AX1200i

You should also get some Apple stickers so it won't get viruses, an Alienware logo so it can play games amazingly and some Razer gear so everyone knows you are totally 1337.

Yup its a 4:1- thin walled heatshrink with a high temp threshold. It takes allot of heat to burn it, and the colored heatshrink does not discolor with a good amount of heat.

I have not found a better heatshrink to this date and I have tested many.

How about sleeving the cables for fans?

If you look in my video sleeving guides I have made one just for fans. (link is in my sig or stickied in the sleeving subforum)

The sleeving uses can be your normal 1/8th or small sized sleeving. However your heatshrink will need to be a bit larger for the method shown in my video but it can be done using smaller and not over the fan head. It comes down to preference.

Very nice, thanks!!!

Lustro0, could you add the sleeving size needed for different types of wires/cables (fan wire single or together, eps, sata, molex, and pcie cables)?

Thanks!

Its LUUUUTROOOOOHHH You silly person you.

Thats a great idea. I will get on that as soon as I can. But for a quick answer the small size or 1/8 is fine for individual wires and even all 3or4 of the fan wires in one. The only other sizes to be aware of is usb cables and sata cables and most of the time the sleeve is listed to be used with those things.

However I will measure them out and give you a better answer late. thumb.gif

I got a molex kit (Sunbeam) with the most ultimate garbage extractor tool, and I'm seeing now that a decent one just costs too much for me to use one time. frown.gif

Oh well. I still have an awesome color idea that I want for some extentions. Can I PM Lutro for a custom order?

Question I have a Seasonic X650 GOLD PSU and would like to sleeve it WITHOUT the heatsrink like many of the pictures I've seen from your threads. Do you have a video or can you explain on how to sleeve without the heatshrink..
Thanks
