Default Sleeving PSU Cables

I'm new so don't kill me if this is in the wrong section!

I was just wondering where everyone is getting the sleeving for their PSU cables? I would love to do a blue and black theme Ala corsair(psu/ram/case)/gigabyte(motherboard) especially on the motherboard connector. And unless corsair put out a new revision of it's HX1000 the sleeving doesn't go right to the PSU either =\

Thanks in advance!!

IMHO, the best brand out there is the MDPC stuff, but it comes from Europe. Shipping is reasonable, and fairly quick from what I hear. MDPC Sleeve | MDPC-X International Although I got mine through Murdermods.
Tech-flex is the 2nd best stuff I've worked with.

That's what most of us use to be honest; it's the only stuff I use as well.

EDIT: Hmm I sounded condescending towards SugarJ, what I meant was to OP; most of us use Sugar's suggestion :)

Another vote for MDPC-X. Although it is far from cheap. I think sleeving almost always ends up costing me nearly as much as the power supply.

I highly suggest staying away from techflex. It is a 1x1 weave and can be seen through very easily. Personally I think stock sleeving looks better than see through sleeving.

Yup, MDPC sleeve. Make sure you sign up on the site there for the prices to adjust. Shipping is really quick. Nils had my order in the mail three hours after my payment, and it arrived in four day. Im in Saskatoon, SK, so the dead middle of Canada almost.

Ya I have ordered 2x from MDPC and Nils is a great guy to buy from. I am still searching for some local resources or someone who manufactures it but I haven't found anything yet.

MDPC is pretty much the place to go to if you need coloured cables. If its just black, there's an ebay seller (furryletters i think) who sells triple braided techflex but its only in black. Think its called 'clean cut'

MDPC costs a bit more than Techflex, and the stuff I bought (from Performance-PCs) was TERRIBLE. I can never suggest Techflex again.... MDPC-X FTW.

I'm considering sleeving my incoming seasonic x750 with mdpc stuff. How long does it take to get, say, the 24pin cable done? I'm tempted to do it but it seems like it would take forever to get the entire thing done.

I'd allow 8-10 hours to single wire sleeve a complete PSU. And a 24 pin takes me about 2 hours. But you'll never do a whole PSU in one sitting. I do a couple hours a night before my fingers cramp up.
