Default PSU sleeving in the GTA?

Hey folks!

New to the community here and to building pcs in general :)

So I finally put together my baby last night but was really bummed out with one thing.... The poor job Corsair has done with the sleeving/braiding on their hx850 PSU

Don't like how you can see the colour of the wires through the braiding, and on the atx connector there is about 2 inches of bare wire with no sleeving.

So I've decided to just do a custom job, with black and aqua braiding, however I've watched videos and feel comfortable doing it myself..

I was wondering if there was anyone in and around the Greater Toronto Area who would be willing to do it for me; I would obviously pay for all the supplies required, as well as a "tip" for all your hard work :)

Let me know!

Rey

By shrink tube do you mean heatshrink?
And can't you just use a blow dryer instead of a heat gun?

Have a soldering iron though :)

You really may want to consider doing it yourself. It would save you the hassle of tracking someone down and actually have them do the job, plus if you don't have another PSU or set of cables to run your rig on it could cause some extended downtime.

I would suggest taking your time and doing it yourself little by little. I also find doing sleeve without heat shrink easier and IMO looks a fair bit nicer.

I'd suggest extensions, that way you don't void your warranty. It will take you hours and lots of patience, but the results will be going from this


to this



Final results

You likely wont find someone unless you are willing to throw the person quite a bit of cash if you are expecting a quality job. It is very time consuming.

You can get quality custom sleeving from Dazmode. It's relatively cheap if you do it yourself, or you can buy extensions for a more cost.
