Default Looking for some unique cable sleeving ideas

: / First post...

Want to introduce myself. I've been building pc's for a while now, and early this year, I started getting into cable sleeving. I've done quite a few color combinations in the past and am soon planning on experimenting with glow in the dark paracord and some of the multi colored options as well. All that said and done, I'm getting fairly bored of doing the same old cables over and over again. Couple nights after a conversation with a friend on irc, I decided to experiment a little on the design of the extension cable and I have to say, I was more than pleased with the result:



Anyways, I was wondering if anybody here had some unique ideas that I could play around with. Anybody have any good guides on braiding wire?

Thanks a bunch HWS!

Actually this is about the best one, no close-ups posted. It is a custom moulded connector.

It's called octTower.

How much sleeving do you generally need for a psu?

I know I need some headroom, just trying to get an estimate

I'll be using mdpc-x

Well taking an average of 60cm length per cable the 24 pin cable would be 14.5 m and wise to add 10%

Yes it adds up quickly but I believe it is worth it.

The basic sleeve kit gives you 30m of single wire sleeve which should do most builds.

I generally use around 150ft of wire and paracord for each fully sleeved psu. Buying 200ft should ensure you have enough to finish the job.
