Default First Attempt MDPC Sleeving :)

Just got it today in the mail, and my fingers feel like jelly

I did, 1 PCI-E 6-pin, and 1 PCI-E 8-pin
I still have my CPU & 24 to go

Done with a lighter, and staples :)

The heatshrinking looks nice and even. That is about as good as I can get mine. But I suggest to try to get the sleeving a bit tighter. That will hurt your cans quite a bit more.

Very nice. It makes me jealous. :D

I've always wanted to do this but now I am pretty much convinced. I think just a few more pictures will fully convince me. haha

Beastylemon that is very good for your first time. Very good job on the shrink.

As for the stretch, pull sleeve full length a couple of times, then pull sleeve again do not let go and put shrink on and heat. Fingers will be close to shrink, so they are a good indicator if you are getting to hot to burn shrink

Good job so far. A tip for stretching the sleeve over to make the weave tighter, try using a clamp, like one of those clamps you can get at Canadian tire with the rubberized tips. They really help.
