Looks great Chomie. I'm a big fan of the paracord as well. I wish I had the patience to do that myself. I almost bit the bullet but I just ended up ordering the corsair sleeved PSU cable kit.

With paracord its thick enough that you can't see through it, and obviously it's harder to work with but if you have the patience to sleeve then I would recommend trying paracord!!
You don't see the wire w/ high quality nylon sleeving if you do a good sleeve job.

The problem w/ paracord is that it doesn't keep its shape.

Do you guys mind if we add to this thread a discussion of PSUs brands that are sleeving friendly?
For instance my OCZ's 24pin come with silly capacitors that would greatly detract from aesthetics if I were to sleeve it.

Silverstone Strider are the only thing I buy now. You can just cut off the capacitors w/ no negative effect. You can also cut off the only double crimped cable w/ no ill effect.
