cablemod AIO sleeving, but for custom watercooling?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Original PosterOP

Alright, first of all i wasn't exactly sure where to post this, but i guess it's a mod so modding would be appropriate?

 

anyway, i love the look of @CableMod's custom AIO sleeving you can put over the tubes of well, an AIO cooler.

if you're not familliar, it looks somewhat like this:

i really want a simmilar look, but i have a small problem. i have a custom watercooled build.

So the question then: is there anything like this sleeving from the guys over at Cable Mod, but in a big sheet you can just kinda cut to size yourself? also, what about those end caps, are they really necessary for the sleeving to stay in place?

 

any answers would be greatly appreciated!

Why not just color the liquid the color you want the sleeves to be? I don't think you can buy it in just a long strand, though you can talk to Cablemod directly if you so desire. The end caps keep the end of the sleeving from fraying, most likely, and just help clean up the look. It might fit over your tubing, assuming you're using thinner walled tubing like 10/13. Though you can probably find the diameter in the specs.

i tried coloured liquids before, tough the results where not pretty. i tend to stay away from all premixes and just mix my own demi-water with some biocide nowadays. 

also, i really would love to go for that fabric-look this gives the tubing. makes it more unique you know?

Iirc, CableMod AIO sleeves are just wraps that you put around the tube, so that should work for custom tubes too I guess?

EDIT: In case you cannot get a particular size from CMod, just email them and ask if it would be possible to get a bigger sheet (or buy a sheet from another general seller).

Bitwit in this video says that they are Nylon-like fabric, similar to cablemod's cable sleeving material:

I don't know for sure. Plus you would need to make sure that the sheet folds on itself or it won't stay in place.

normal fabric should work but you would need to stich it or find a different way to give it the round shape. What you want is larger diameter leeving. If you don't want to undo all the fittings you need to slice it open like you would do when cutting these sleevings.

i'm planning on modding my case anyway, so i would need to disassemble my entire pc at some point in the future. i thought this would be a good time to also sleeve the tubes.

yeah that's also a issue. i guess i could just make the stuff a little longer so the compression fittings that hold in my tubing als hold in the baric? i think that would look the cleanest.

Is this water tight (capillary action)?

 

Since you want to disassemble your pc anyway you could use colored tubing and or frosted tubing.

holy crap i just noticed the typos i made in that post. those are pretty brutal.

anyway, coloured tubing is ofcourse always an option, and tbh i will probably be switching to black tubing when i get to the modding just to not have any of the tubing show through the fabric.

i really do want that 'sleeved' fabric look tough. and afaik there really isn;t any tubing that provides that.

You can order cable sleeves off eBay, just measure the diameter of the lines 

https://www.ebay.com/itm/ALL-SIZES-COLORS-5-FT-100-FT-Expandable-Cable-Sleeving-Braided-Tubing-LOT/222470958795?hash=item33cc4d6ecb:m:mO_cCrPCeq_uycUjOrrA6rA:sc:USPSFirstClass!46304!US!-1

 

i used to use this stuff all the time for custom cable sleeving, my 12$ Chinese power supply and 750ti/Pentium g3260 build looked super cool 


Build the PC you want to build, not what others tell you is best. If you want to sacrifice faster ram or a better motherboard for parts that look cooler, go for it. It's your PC.

 

 

Safe used buys:

-Processors

-Motherboards (inspect the pins on LGA sockets)

-RAM

-Cases

- Air Coolers

-Midrange or entry level GPUs 

 

Potential risky Buys:

-Hot, high end graphics cards

-Power supplies

-AIO liquid coolers

-m.2 SSD's

 

Do NOT buy used:

-SATA SSDs

-hard drives, especially enterprise tier

-motherboards with bent pins thinking you can fix it

-PGA processors with bent pins thinking you can fix it

-gpus with "bios errors"
