Thanks for the Howto: its given me a few ideas when im on holidays
great guide, thanks Dangals, now I just need to get the sleeving
Yes it does! Very much. Thanks and appreciate the thread, these things would be much harder without guides like this.
It literally took me about 30mins just to get one of the 24pin cables out >< But after I got the first one, all the others were easy. Maybe I'm just a downer
dunno about you, but 2 or the 5 pins in the first sata power cable i did had a gumby system with a clip on one side pushed in...they were real bastards to get out! the molex tool was too short..
the other 3 came out with buggerall effort.
unfortunately i didnt factor in the sleeving and heatshrink reducing flex and one of the connectors is like 5mm out of position
Thanks for the howto
Definitely doing this before I finish this build.
Can anybody vouch for the Flexo Clean Cut from Gam?
i ordered some, ill post pics and impressions when its here.
Hi Dangals thanks alot for this sleeving guide it helped me alot. i just did 24 & 8 molex powercables, and gpu powercable, sata power, sata hd cable. Looks great
 here some pictures of the sleeving with murdermod
i want to sleeve my antec quattro 1000w but the rubber caps they have instead of heatshrink on the cables are a bitch to remove!!!!! fuck! i give up
Yeah they are dumb and ugly, don't know why they use those bulky things, I use side cutters to cut as close as possible one side and then use a hobby knife to get closer and then just peel it off ...
yeah i used a knife and i accidently cut a bit of insulation off a couple of wires revealing some silver wire underneath, do you think that would cause a problem? u think i should have some heatshrink over it to be safe?
did you manage to cut through ALL those plastic pieces if crap? they are driving me nuts, not to mention hurting my fingers trying to peel them off.
can you give me more detail in your technique to removing them? i want maximum details lol
hmmm I'm not sure I can give you better details than I already have, yeah it is hard work on your fingers and yes put some heatshrink over where you have cut through, never ever leave wires open like that ..
can u post a photo of the rubber caps so i can understand more and i might know in detail
bastards are so hard to remove
ive messed up one pcie already
I think im going to be running into the same issues as you guys.. these are the same thing on my Thermaltake 1200W PSU cables... arrggg.. i just ordered 25 meters of CCPET... and ideas how to get these things off? or what they are they are pretty hard
plus it looks like they use some kind of glue on the inside as well
dudes i have same psu as u i did it all and its not hard to get it off...(some are ) well the thing is u need to get this set or something like this:
then put it like this inside
then pull the wire... if its hard to pull off... get a small screwdriver and put it between the tool and push the iron thing inside untill it moved then pull the wire (ofcourse keep the tool still inside it).
after a few sleevings u get something like this:
goodluck hope this helps a bit
well yeah getting them off isnt that hard now that ive had a crack...
now i have a different question
my PSU has these 8-pin to 6-pin PCI-E adapters.. now im wondering, how hard would it be to just make this a single cable instead of a this red ugly thing that has to plug in..
as this is the only way i have to get 4x 6-pin PCI-e power rails
now im assuming cause the 8 pin just has 2 extra grounds.. this should be as simple as take out the extra ground rail wires and put on 1 end a pci-e 6 pin plug.. any thoughts?
what u mean is.... combine the 8pin and 6pin together into 1 plug?
well i need 4x 6pin pci-e plugs for my 4890's
and the power supply comes with 3x 6 pin plugs and 3x8 pin plugs and also 3 8 pin to 6 pin plugs..
now instead of plugin in one of the adapters im going to take one of the 8 pin plugs off the end and replace it with the 6 pin one from one of the adapters.. thus taking away one of the ugly adapter plugs and making 4x 6 pin cables..
i have followed how the pins go from the power supply to the pci-e 6 pin plug and it looks like it will work fine..
Need alot more sleeving then i thought.. i thought that 20meters of ccpet would be enough to do all of my cables.. (everything!!) nope more like 40 ah well should give me alot of stuff to do whilst i wait for my tax return to buy the rest of my pc...
Oh and i can now see how you can cut up your fingers doing this.. those pci-e plugs and the pins are sharp.. my index finger is hurting now..
