Actually I hit a snag. The plan was to sleeve a 800W Gigabyte Odin GT that I had laying around here. I went to start it yesterday and found out it isn't going to make a good candidate to do. I had cut all the cables down to length on my last install. And most the lengths would work great for my current system. But the issue is that with the white sleeving I can see through it to there areas where i soldered and heatshrink the cables underneath.

So I need to buy a new PSU. Then cut the cables from inside the psu to length match them to my system.

Sounds like lots of work. I'm wondering what I should do with mine, I plan on selling my current PC, but will be using the same PSU (HX1000), I'm thinking about swapping power supplies as I know this one works fine. Maybe I'm too paranoid haha.

Post some pics when you get started with the white sleeving :)

I've seen ppl wrap white electrical tape around before sleeving. A bit of work, but cheaper than a new psu.

Even when I used white heatshrink it didn't look right. It expands too much and you can see through it.

Do you remember how long it took you to receive your order? I could have sworn somewhere that I read it took you only three days to receive it? lol
I'm patiently waiting on mine, but just wanted a point of reference :D
