3:1 or 2:1 and the size.
I've found the best quality heat shrink is the 3:1 dual walled w/ glue liner.

There's tons of cheaper stuff available out there but I've found this to be the best - especially if you need the sleeving to hold in place; ie: when sleeving SATA cables.

Yes, great looking rigs!!! Certainly something I'd be looking at if I were looking for a boutique build. I especially like the look of the black sleeving over the tubing, and an absolutely amazing job of making everything look like it came off of an assembly line.

I've noticed that quite a few boutique builds look like they're just thrown together, yours looks like something an engineer spent over a year designing. Great job!!!!

(Gotta get some 4870s up there as a choice though.. :) ).

Thanks Guys! :)

I came over here after Matt emailed me and must say, I really dig the vibe of this place. I also really appreciate all the positive support and enthusiasm for what I'm doing. I've got lots of ideas that will soon be revealed and I hope to be able to contribute to the modding community. A community that has given me so much.

Oh, i'll get on those 4870s, cheers! :)

Awesome man! Good to see someone of your status here :)

Another question.. how do you cut your sleeving to get a nice clean cut without frays? I'm still trying to find a good way.

Right now I wrap a piece of electricians tape around the area I want to cut then melt the sleeving and remove the tape.

Do a nice quick cut, then run a soldering iron quickly across the cuts.

If you want more rigidity to your heatshrink you can always use 2 sleeves of different grades, the larger (diameter) one shorter than the smaller. This allows for a rigid overall sleeve, but allows some play at the end.
