TBH I think perfect amount of shrink showing vs no shrink is all subjective. It's dependent on taste of the individual working the project. If that's what you are going for, congrats on reaching perfection!

I agree as well. In my opinion, as long as the shrink is all cut to the same length and not overly long (NZXT extensions come to mind, those are what I have now and I find the shrink to be long) I think the shrink looks nice. In my case though I've got the appropriate coloured shrink to match my sleeving.

I agree with you Lowfat and mattlef heatshrinkless does look better than shrinked
I know I couldnt have made this cable and it look like it does
Daz asked me to take some pics of his sleeving and sent me that extension along with 16 other colours
I was surprised at the quality of the shrink work

Yes keep in mind this is a cropped pic,and probably appears larger than it really is
first pic gives the right scale of shrink shrink is 3/4 inch

My only problem with heathsrinkless is that there are other wires in the pc which require shrink and it bothers me to have half the wires heatsrhinked and half heatshrinkless.

Otherwise yes heatsrhinkless does look better, but the non uniformity is whack imo :P

Was that in reference to the 10 and 18 pin to 24 pin statement?

The more I read through this thread, the more I really want to rip apart my computer and do a custom sleeving on it. The saddest part is all my power supply cables came with a black sleeve on them already and I just wanna redo it for the fun haha.

First rule no matter what camera you're using (cell phones aren't appropriate for good pics) is to use a tripod for stability.
