Pretty hard to determine how much to order. Any suggestions. Looking at the powersupply looks like around 40' of 4mm to me would do. The wiring that will be seen will only be the

2x videocard PCI E( keeping in mind possibly two ) and only a portion really ( 8" long a strand) =16"
1x 24 pin ATX main at 24 x 8" a strand = 192"
ATX 6 pin x 6" strands.=36"

fans would be a total of 6 fans 3 strands but would sleeve as one each at 6" = 36" ( going to use the motherboard, there are 8 connectors on it instead of a fan controller )


My hd cabling will not be seen

thoughts ?

That's about 23 feet of sleeving.

2mm for the individual strands and 4mm for the fan ( all combined or go to 6mm )

??

PC Cable and Wire Sleeving Kit
It really won't work if you plan on sleeving all wires individually. Those kits were designed back in the day when people didn't sleeve every single wire individually.

EDIT: 8" power cables? What are you sleeving, a tiny ITX system? Usually those cables are 2 feet. On average you'd need about 100 feet to do most systems.

So what sleeve sizes. I'm just about to order from Dazmode.

Going to sleeve the 24pin, the 2 pcie connectors. The rest you won't see.

Are they 2mm or 4 mm ?

For regular PSU wires 18AWG.

As for sleeve size I think it is 4mm but I still haven't used Dazmode sleeve so I can't confirm if this is correct.

My next system most likely will be entirely all grand bleu. It looks so tasty.

Don't suppose you have any shade 19 you can add to the picture? I'm curious how the graphite would pair up w/ it.
