    since you have money and space, why not buy those extension cables?

    how the hell do you cut your fingers???


    the quickest way to sleeve is...

    1. get a strong string (fishing line will work great)
    2. tape the end of the wire (the jack) with masking tape to the string, try to make it a nice cone
    3. hold the sleeving as straight as possible, vertically would be best.
    4. pass fishing line through the sleeving (which is easy since its hard, and slippery)
    5. pull the wire through while keeping the sleeving taught to prevent it from getting caught.

    having a friend helps.

    incase you use a thin nylon string weigh the other end of the string down with a long needle. then pass it through.

    yea its soo passionate, I was just going to spray the outside and got carried away ha!

    that's the easy bit, the hard part is getting the connectors apart.

    Looking good so far.

    Red racing stripes. Two like they are on race cars. You can then outline the red with a thin line of white to make it pop. ;)

    thanks!

    i should give some tips to make this informational.

    1. if ya thinking of sleeving...... dont! its a friggin nightmare and takes days on a whole psu!
    2. if you do end up sleeving, measure up how much you need (sleeving/heatshrink) and buy loads more on top, im about 40 metres for single cables, and thats not all the modular cables!
    3. buy spare connectors and plenty of them, its easy to rip the cable straight out
    4. too many hours of pulling on cables will cause damage to your, im a labourer and pick up blocks everyday and the cables ripped skin from my hands.
    5. buy spare tools, some cables are tough and need force. my pin removal flew across the room and broke, another time i slipped and broke it.
    6. watch the videos and read about it!! do it by the book for best results
    7. dont rush!

    tbh i think it costs more sleeving it ya self. ive spent about £40+ so far. and thats including tools.

    the only thing i dislike about attached sleeved cables, is that it nearly doubles cable length. and you still have the original cables from the psu. which for cable management is a nightmare.

    you cant see it but the glue stripped some of the paint near the cstrip molding. ive got to do a few touch ups. im still waiting on the perspex.

    sleeving is done, time to drill holes for vrm circuitiry cooling mod. and then put it all together.

    got to wait to buy a few more things. so its about three-quarters finished.
