It's rather time confusing and frustrating. You can do it, but you'll probably want to kill yourself when you're done, that is if your fingers even work anymore ;)

I'm sure you can buy pre-made extensions like that, but it'll probably cost a fair bit due to the amount of work involved.

the ATX connectors are a slut to take apart, i went through 3 different tools before i had one that did it succesfully while still being overly frustrating....that was a while ago, but still

Ah ... I finally saw this thread. I tried sleeving and it hurt too much. It's better to buy them if you want to just do your own system. But if you want to make money doing it, then you need to learn to do it fast and painless ... :mrgreen:

For me personally, that would require a fifth of Vodka, 4 vicodin, and a tube of Ben Gay. For each session. Per cable.

I'm glad you clarified that it was PER cable. Remind me NOT to have you do any personal sleeving for me ... :obscene-drinkingcheers:

I just wish they would leave out the fragrance. I'm tired smelling like and old fart.
