My System Specs

Default Last chance to buy (sensitivity mode) custom-made, uni-sleeved 6pin PCIe cable :)

Well, to keep it short and sweet.

I've decided to start making some custom uni-sleeved cables. Right now the aesthetic's are a bit lacking (in the finer details on the heat-shrink etc) so I will be selling the first few 'samples' at a reduced cost.

First on the list is a modular 6pin PCIe cable.

The cable has already been tested in my own rig (wouldn't want someone's rig burning out).

Asking price is $20 + shipping (price is OBO) will throw in some mathing blue zip-ties!!

NINJA EDIT: Just a little FYI, any money I make from this will go into buying Folding rig components.

NOT SO NINJA EDIT: To all the people asking if I can sleeve their whole PSU, the answer is yes, just give me a few days to get more comfortable with this stuff. I've already done my second cable as well and tested it out. So far so good! If anyone wants to know of the timelines involved if they want a PSU sleeved. I would: 1. need to order the materials. 2. need at least a few days to put do the actual sleeving for one PSU, it is very time consuming and this is just a hobby and not a job for me.

Obligatory pic:




Have some other colours available to choose from (not sure if I can post FS if I haven't actually made the cables yet).

I don't have much in terms of materials at the moment (its stupid expensive to get this stuff from Germany).

Colours that are currently available (as seen in my high-tech shop )

If possible can you shrink the size of the pictures as they are rather large and people using lower resolutions will have a hard time seeing most it in their screen

That would be MDPC sleeving, no secret :). It's expensive, is made in Germany, and shipped from
there too. If there is enough interest in these cables I can order a larger supply and even sleeve whole PSUs. Again, the pricetag is not for the feint of heart lol

To make a 6pin you're looking at around an hour in total if you want it nice and tight etc. A 24pin is four times as long for quality work.

This one here I did race out just to see how quickly I could do it, and heck, I didn't even precisely measure the sleeving nor the heatshrink so it is uneven (I'm showing the 'good' side, the bad side is a bit worse, but still decent).

I resized the pics earlier :) but copy and pasting things to have proper quotes etc is a pain and a half!

All PMs replied, can take a couple more orders for those interested, and the cables will be perfect if they're made to order :)
