You can use a small jewelers screwdriver for molex, for female ones you can take a 3.5mm audio jack and take out the middle pin. I got techflex sleeving and I'm really wishing I could get some MM stuff, but it costs so much and you can't get the kits in white :(

how much 4.4mm sleeving does that come with? Are you doing every wire individially or doing like 50-75% of the 24pin ATX connector with just the larger sleeve?

It comes with 100' of the small, which I assume is the 4.4mm sleeving. And I think I will probably just do the individual sleeving on the parts of the cables that are visible. Except for the USB/Front Panel connections, those will be sleeved together.
I'll post pics of the sleeving progress in my worklog as it happens, but I cheaped out on the shipping, so it probably won't get here until the end of next week.

Yeah I did that too, didn't realize it was paypal, so waiting on the transfer :(

Sushi, MDPC-X | No compromise! I believe they're the same/similar company, they do carry white. But I think they ship from Europe.

I know they do sell it but I got my Techflex for $15 for 50 feet and 10 feet of shrink. MDPC would be a lot more b/c I would have to buy a fair bit at once and it costs $20 for 30 feet. That's at least 3x the price.

Yes, murdermod sells the MDPC-X sleeving in black. That's where I got mine. Charles currently doesn't have any in Vancouver, his partner Kirk in the USA has it. And the Europe partner in mm is Nils, who also happens to own and and run MDPC-X and million-dollar-pc.com. Confused yet?

hey i have question regarding sleeving. I have antec ea 750 which came pre sleeved (kinda) should i remove those sleeving and re do them? I think they still look great at the moment but i'm not sure. i think it could be much better if they were re sleeved. I'm thinking of getting only small ones from mdpc x probably 100m spool doing each wire individually.
