So you just bought $100+ worth of murdermod sleeving, and don't want to waste it on your beige 500w no brand PSU that costs 1/3 the price? Simple answer, go buy the best PSU, an Enermax Revolution. Aint she pretty? Before we start - My camera is shit, if you have a problem with the quality, please feel free to mail me a new one. Now, to get the above you need, a row of staples, a heat gun, murdermod sleeving. One Psychopack will see the 24 pin, 8 pin, 2 x 4 pin, 2 x 8 pin (GFX) sleeved - as long as you dont waste any. i have about 30cm left, you can see im about 40-50cm short with that blasted yellow wire. (i wasted a meter on my htpc weeks ago - bugger) Now please find PSU porn below. These are the cables and pretty little casing that comes with the PSU. Theres a bucketload in here, want to sleeve em?? buy another psycopack. Now you have seen the above, and marvelled at the sheer quality of the beast, lets start. Before we go any further, plug your brand new spanking Enermax into the wall, attach a fan, and turn it on.. Does it work? awesome.. Now turn it off on the wall, and unplug the power cord from the PSU. Don't get scared, it is kinder freaky holding your PSU, fully unplugged, with the fan still spinning and lights flashing - wireless anyone?? Its supposed to do that. Now you know that it works, grab a screw driver. Screw all the little screws out, you can see slight white marks around that screw hole. There goes your warranty. Cradle your PSU and shed a slight tear. Remove the fan grill, fan enclosure, and the outside. place em on a shelf out of the way. See the static bag behind the PSU? Put all your screws in that. This is the fan that will get slightly annoying over the next 5-7 hours, its hard wired to the PSU on a short leash and blobs around in your way. Deal with it - the fans bloody nice and quiet! (Don't forget it whirls when theres no power, you will end up turning it on and off just to see it keep whirlling) The above two are what you end up looking at. Meh, ignore it and move on to the wires. Start clipping the little zip tires that holds the current sleeving in place. My aim was to remove the sleeving, without destroying it. It is rather good quality. So from now on you will see my method of saving all the sleeving - also im a hoarder. The below has been started on a a simple 4 pin power cable. I didn't bother to mark them, or anything, its not hard to remember where the wires go, you probably have 100 spare ones lying around to study if you need to recheck. How to remove pins: 1. Straighten a staple with pliers. 2. *drumroll* Bend it in half - BACKWARDS! - Thats the secret, shows over. Anyway, after you have bent your staple and made sure the ends are the same length. Insert it into the pin, make sure it does actually go down the center of each side, and not into a corner, as you will miss the metal clips. Gentle tap into a hard object. The pins then gently pull out - a short tug might be needed. Note: If you find yourself having to yank it, your going to snap the cable, or fuck the pins. DON'T DO IT. Remove staple and place it on the desk (you are about to knock it off, spend 5 minutes trying to find it, then rebend a new one - fun!) Once the pins are removed, cut off the heatshrink. Underneath you find it held in place by some very strong glued thread material. Its harder then you think to get off. Quality: +1 Once removed you can start pushing up the sleeving. Ditto Place all your pieces and screws etc in the forementioned static bag for future use. Lets start with something simple. Grab your fan cable. The average cable requires some sleeving, and 2 bits of heatshrink. if you need anything else you must be doing something wrong. Pull your sleeving into position. Simple rules to sleeving, and this will help you to not waste your time, or sleeving materials. 1. Don't stretch your sleeving, it will simply pull itself out of its heatshrink over time. 2. Don't waste heatshrink by thinking you need alot on the wire. You only need it to hold the ends of the sleeving intact (5-6mm on the sleeving, 2-3mm on the wire) + it looks better 3. Don't rely on the heatshrink holding the sleeving in place. 4. Push your sleeving together, see it bounce back like a spring? Make the sleeving long enough, that the length of the sleeving will help push itself firmly against the plastic pin holder. 5.DONT STRETCH YOUR SLEEVING Set heat gun to maximum, and do quick flybys with it. it is very easy to melt the sleeving. Now do the other end, please do this with a lighter or a match. You really dont want to be blowing 200 Degrees all over your PSU insides with a heatgun.
