    I'm looking at getting some braid to do the fan cables in the Antec 1200 I'm getting soon, as there are so many fans, as some nice black braid will hide them from standing out against the flush black finish of the insides.

    The only problem is I don't know what size to get. It will be used to house the 2 very thin wires on a standard fan.

    Available: 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, or 10mm diameter braids.

    I also need the relevant heat shrink...

    Available: 3.2, 4.8, 6.5, 9.5, or 12.7mm diameter heat shrink.

    The heat shrink I'm looking at has a 2:1 shrink ratio.

    Thanks :)

    Ask in the cases sub-forum, might get better advice there.

    I don't know anything about braiding unfortunately, sorry. :(
