Planning to para-sleeve my rig, advice on colors etc...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ok guys, I love the look of a sleeved rig but never pursued it because of cost and time for something that is only an aesthetic improvement... Well with the FTW PC sale on Paracord I think I can handle the cost of materials plus tools and make it happen now. Rig in question is in my sig, will post a few pics of it as it is now.

I have the Corsair HX-850 in it now and am wondering what colors to go with, I love the white in the fans and case and am thinking of doing mostly white sleeving with a second color for every fourth cable... Blue would go well considering the mobo etc... but if I were to upgrade who knows what colors I may eventually have throughout the pc, so I am thinking black as a second color, possibly 1 black wire in each PCI-E cable, 1 in the Mobo power etc... If I did go with blue I guess since only some of the wires would be that color I could always change it if I upgraded into a diff color.... Any suggestions?

I am guessing I will need around 100 feet of white and 50 of the other color I think I will save some time/work and order the pre-cut shrink, black for everything, 100 or 200 pieces?

Also I will need the Molex Jr. tool and the double ended tube one I believe?

Blue black and white is my call, but you know, i think braiding every three cables together tends to look good, ill TRY to do it to my 24 pin whenever i sleeve that cable. But black is a great old standard, it goes with everything

Black and white would be ok in my opinion, maybe 3 colors is a bit much imo.
