its cool but the srinking ends are not going to fit /sad.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='sad.gif' /> the one that you heat and it becomes smaller thats where allthe the looks go lol ! but nice you did it ! you passed it cool man ! thanks alot ! and i hope i wont have to much difficulty ! you have a 20 pin mobo connector i have a 24 pin one ! more trouble /wacko.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='wacko.gif' />

was it easy to pass ??? the big 20 pin connector ?

and how did you pass the 4pin wires ?? ( the ones that you connect your dvd rom with ) ? i think im going to take the plastic cap out for these ones there easy but i will never take that big 24 pin connector out !! /ohmy.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='ohmy.gif' />

anyways tell me if it was easy to pass it ? and do you have more pics or its the only ones that you have ?? dude thanks alot !! /smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' />

you will need this kind of heat shrink tubing for the 20 pin conector and a biger one for the 24 pin but you get the idea right? here are the pic's .


here are the molex conectors heat shrink tubing needed size in pic's too. /biggrin.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='biggrin.gif' />

take a look at my case, i did quite a decent ammount of sleeving...

removing the molex connectors is by far the fastest way to get the job done, and the sleeving like triples in diameter when you compress it, which makes things easier.

easy to do, lots of time required. trying to do a psu in an hour will end up with a very very bad job.

well as long as we are talking about cases and what we have done take a look at this one too.. http://forums.amd.com/index.php?showtopic=45825' ">http://forums.amd.com/index.php?showtopic=45825
it is not that hard to do and you can only remove the female ends of the molex cables if you do the male end you will find that you have ruined the cable so be very careful when doing this and use a molex removal tool to do the female ends ok.

Its heatshrink...

You heat it....and it shrinks to fit. Its big enough to pass over the Molex's before you shrink it.

QUOTEVANTEC CABLE SLEEVING KIT, how to pass it over the connectors ??

I reccommend feeding them sleeping tablets and then sneaking the Sleeves in the back door when they are comatose. /wink.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='wink.gif' />

well all I know is that if you get 1 1/2 " heat shrink tubing you will be able to do the 24 pin conector no problem . I do not know about the mm stuff as in america we are on the inch system and that is what I had learn in school about 20 years ago . so 3/4" tubing for the molex cables that conect your video card , HHD , and CD roms and 1 1/2 " for the big stuff and 1/2" or 5/8" for even smaller stuff just look at the pic's I gave you and you will be fine and for goodness sack get a heat gun k?

I installed a Vantec Cable Sleeving Kit a while ago, and yes - you do have to remove the connectors.

Just be sure to label them clearly during the process, because you sure as [content edited] don't want the computer to blow up when you turn it back on.

I just used a sturdy piece of wire, you really don't need those de-pinning tools.

Just stick the wire in, push down the tab and the terminal pops straight out of the connector.

Then once the sleeving is on; you curl the tab on the terminal back up and slide the wire back through the connector. You'll hear a click. That's all there is to it!

Hey, since your concerned about the same thing I was, heres what I did, they dont come in the same cool colors, and with a little practice, they should look pretty good.

Its kinda like an airtube kinda thing, you just keep wrapping it around the wire and use thier little sticky things at the end.

Heres a few Ive done, using the Blue reactive(now all i need is a UV light =p)



My first try, i need to unlazy myself and retighten it, and add a filler or something.
