Decided to individually sleeve!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I just contacted XFX and also the retailer that sold me the power supply asking them if it would void the warranty and they said no as long as you don't open the PSU then you can sleeve it.

So, I have decided that I want to individually sleeve the PSU. What are your recommendations on what to use? I was looking at paracord because it is so cheap.

How easy would it be to use paracord compared to normal sleeving? I will be using the straw technique for easy sleeving tongue.gif

I second the MDPC-X. Sleeves look great especially if you have a black case. I had it on my last PSU.

FTW Sleeve is going to be well worth the wait. if you absolutely cannot wait, paracord will do the job quite well. Just makee sure you tape off the pins with electrical tape to avoid snagging it as it slides over the connector.

We currently have 8 colors in stock:

Don't forget the pin extraction tool

I'd recommend just about anything over paracord, even electrical tape.

MDPCX

FTWPC sleeve (coming soon)

Anything but paracord. It's the devil.

Now you have just made me think twice about getting paracord tongue.gif I will wait and see what the FTWPC sleeve is going to be like smile.gif

I will also check the MDPC-X and see how much it is in the UK.

Cheers all biggrin.gif
