Sleeving Opinions Needed

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm gonna sleeve my new OCZ ZX 1000w psu and decided on going with MDPC for the sleeving and heatshrink. I've chosen the bmagic blue and black sleeving as they fit my theme.

The wires will alternate black and blue (lol obviously ) but my question is whether I should go with matching heatshrink or black on every wire. My roommate thinks I should go all black and I'm kinda in the middle myself about it. What better place to turn to than the OCN community.

Ghetto rigged pic included



Also, my 690 ii advanced is on it's way to me in the mail and I wanted to go ahead and order the sleeving since it'll take a week or 2 to arrive. I've accounted for all the PSU wire lengths but I also want to sleeve the case wires themselves (I'm pretty sure since they're like 20-22 gauge wires, a single sleeve would suit em just fine) but I have no clue as to how much extra black sleeving I should purchase. MDPC sells em in 10 meter lengths which is about 32 feet of sleeving. How much extra black should I get?

So what do you guys think?

I'd go black. I've sleeved wires with similar colored shrink and it just doesn't look as nice. Black all the way. And once you go black....
