    Hm, interesting - I'm going with Paracord for a casemod, I'm currently doing.
    Now, having read a little bit about the issue, it seems like the description "#550" refers to the breaking point (measured in pounds), and doesn't necessarily having anything to do with the thickness - is that correct?

    If that is so, I'm going to have a tough time finding the same size that you ordered, unless I order the stuff from knivbutik.se - but, I'm not even sure that their various colour types of 550 Paracord are the same diameter, so I'm really confused by this. I don't want to be buying Paracord that is too thick for single-wire sleeving.

    You follow me there?

    Hi Nutman :)

    Great chiose of uniquenes! #550 means that it can hold upp to 550pounds, thats correct as you say :)

    The size cant be different, because the diferent between #450 and #550 is that #550 has 7 threads inside which are 3strains braided, the 450 has 5 or 4 of them, thats the big diference :)

    since you live in Danmark you could order from knivbutik.se :), what i know its free shipping inside sweden but i think you could arrange somethin to Danmark too :)!

    What colors have you had in mind ?

    Ok, thanks.

    I had the Woodland Camo colour in mind, since I'm doing a military-styled casemod.

    Well, let's see when it's done. The woodland camo colour MIGHT not fit that well with the olive drab colour chosen for the rest of the mod, but I thought a slight variation in colours would be nice.

    However, I'm pretty sure that's not how the military would think for REAL field-ready computers. ;)

    I'm in the Australian Military and 550 pound para cord is something I work with everyday. For a military themed case mod use olive drab (suggested before). I can get the part numbers and Mil spec details if you like?

    Thanks, guys - really appreciate it!

    However, I found a local army apparel store here in Copenhagen (http://www.arms-gallery.dk) and bought myself 200 ft. of #550 Paracord (Woodland Camo colour) - the diameter is app. 3.2 mm. PERFECT for single-wire PSU sleeving. :thumb:

    Hey everybody ... now I'm finally back on track!
    Thanks to my twin brother (ReDoZz) who bought Photobucket Pro to me for a year so I can once again upload pictures to the people! You can also see all those other pictures now ... what can I say!
    Thanks Brother!

    Now I've finally had time to make some progress this evening / morning...first of all, it had to fix a gallery on Sweclockers, and then I started sleeving the PSU, got pretty far but at some point you have to sleep od course!

    8pin CPU entirely done, however it shall obtain a new 8pin connector instead of a 4pin and 6pin....

    [​IMG]

    Time for the 24pin cable:), the funniest bit!

    [​IMG]

    Halfway to the cables
    [​IMG]

    I have to have an eye on all the cables:), Sofar so good, the next bit is to prepare Paracord!

    [​IMG]

    sorting out colors and fix the cables so they do not sit across each other ...

    [​IMG]

    Precut paracordpieces...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Progsess do far with the 24pin cable, 4pin part is complete and the second coyote brown part aswell:)
    That is all until now anyway, I will hopefully make it clear today:) later after I got some sleep, Then I will post some finished products pictures!
