Default Sleeve my own cables or buy them pre-sleeved

hi, i was wondering what was your thoughts on sleeving vs buying pre-sleeved.

from what i understand, i don't think you can really sleeve your own SATA cables though.
from what i 've seen the only cables that are sleevable are all power cables, fan cables, and IDE cables.

I want all the cables to be UV reactive in my case because i just bought UV cathodes.
i need to know ASAP pleaSE!
**also, im not running a modular PSU.

what i need: 4x uv reactive SATA, 1x uv reactive IDE....
the psu cables from my corsair tx750, are sleeved black...should i change it?or just let the few cables be sleeved?....i'm still not sure if i'll even need to sleeve the cables because if my cable mangement is too good then i wont even see any of the cables.

Buying pre sleeved like from PerfPCS you don't get what you want & will be disappointed when it isn't to your expectations. I'd just guy a kit & DIY if it were me. That's what i'm doing anyways.

I've sleeved SATA and IDE cables.



The worst part was sleeving the 20pin power connector

Sleeving SATAs is easy IMO, I use srictly UV lights in my rig and found these to look nice and clean, and brite.

Newegg.ca - Link Depot 3 ft. SATA II WITH LOCKING (90 degree) cable Model SATA2L-3-UVB - Cables

I actually prefre them over the ones I sleaved.

Those are pretty nice cables. I'm trying to find UV orange ones but the only UV orange ones I can find are the ones that come with the DFI LANParty DK P45 board
