Wouldn't it be better to just for a sleeving kit then, since that includes all sizes of sleeving and heatshrink?

Sleeving kits don't come w/ a lot of single sleeve. Not enough for a modular PSU. Do they offer a sleeve kit in shade 19?

Here is a comparison from the corsair AX series sleeved cables next to the bitfenix alchemy cables. They are definitely nice but the I still prefer the look and feel of the bitfenix. Corsair was a lil sloppy on the heatshrink to some people's standards but I'm fine with it. I am simply switching because sleeved>extensions. I also really like the look of no heatshrink on the alchemy's. They worked out to be about the same price. About 100 bucks for each full cable set. Although I got a few with the alchemy's that I didn't get with the corsair. Like 2 pin front panel cables and sata cables.

Yea you got me ..
I was about to hit order when the Nils closed the store, fortunately it opens up again in 2 hours or so..

Just to confirm, so far I got:
20 meters of Shade 19
10 meters of Color-X
2 packs of pre-cut heatshrink
5 meters of Shade 19 SATA sleeving.. - Do I need more that 5 meters, I'll be having 2 possible 3 drives?
0.7 meters of SATA heatshrink..
4-PIN pin remover (since it's dirt cheap really)

Anything else I need?

5 meters of SATA sleeve should be plenty.

Make sure you get the V2 stuff. I've also heard their heatshrink isn't very good.

Ya, getting that. Waited for it to come out before ordering but then they didn't have connectors in stock when I was last ordering.

I am sponsored by them by the way so going to get everything from there basically :p

...I wonder if I could do sleeveless on a fan

I personally hate nylon sleeving... So I went and followed a post by MNPCTech.com about 550 paracord and I was extremely pleased. For the record I bought a 24pin sleeved extension from dazmode.com that came with nylon sleeving but the issue is that you can see the wire color underneath it. With paracord its thick enough that you can't see through it, and obviously it's harder to work with but if you have the patience to sleeve then I would recommend trying paracord!!
