Default Paracord sleeve your PSU Guide

Paracord is more time consuming to sleeve with over conventional Power Supply sleeve, but more dense, so it looks and feels nicer. It's also cheaper and available in wide range of colors! Here is a How To Guide to paracord sleeving!

I've been looking forever for dense nylon monofilament sleeve that doesn't cost a fortune and all along I forget that's the same stuff they use in paracord.

What's better is that after you take out the nylon strands you can reuse them for HDD suspension mounting.

I don't get why the guy in the video didn't just tape the connector instead of wasting expensive heatshrink.

How many hours would that take? I don't think I would have the patience to do that to my personal PC, doesn't seem worth it for something nobody will ever really look at.

For a first timer, an afternoon or 10

It is a hobby. Not a lot of people see model car collections, but people still spend hours doing it.

This is the kind of thing I would do while watching some light comedy or listening to music. Trouble is, all of my media is on my computer, which would temporarily not have a powersupply. Oh, what a quandary.
