Aww yeah it's build time! [TJ08B-E Watercooled Build Log; Complete] - Page 11

I think leave the tubing without sleeve.

As for sleeving the PSU. Ive done a seasonic before and yeah they do have a lot of twisted and split cables. Makes for a real pain..but I made sure to put them back in the same places. Dont wanna ruin your new PSU tongue.gif

Sleeved looks much better tongue.gif
About the PSU sleeving, make sure you sleeve it exactly as is.

Looks awesome btw thumb.gif

Hm, that's one for sleeved, one for as is.

I wonder, can I find a diagram for the wiring connections for the Seasonic x650 somewhere? Maybe I oughta go check out the club or something. I don't wanna mess this up.

edit: apparently, the X-series Seasonic PSUs are notoriously tough to sleeve. Great.

So are the Corsair ones... Well considering that the Corsair power supplies are just rebranded Seasonic, then I guess it's the same thing in the end. Just take your time, and do I cable at a time.

A pin diagram I have not been able to find for you frown.gif

Sleeved tubing looks awesome! Tubing sleeved with stainless steel looks even awesomer though http://www.overclock.net/t/1268950/build-log-synthetic-anatomy

I don't know how the psu cables looked before but you could just sleeve them all in one bunch if it was just a matter of the other sleeving looking bad

Ya know, I was gonna do that, but I saw that build log and decided I didn't like it as much as I thought I would, oddly. I wanted there to be as much metal inside this case as I could fit, but it looks like toilet plumbing to me ha

I need your opinions, folks. I'm trying to decide between sleeving the tubes or leaving them as is. I'm glad that I got matte tubing, but I think the sleeving could be cool on a case-wide basis. What do y'all think? It wasn't the easiest thing, and I'm wondering if there are any foreseeable consequences for using compression fittings with sleeving covering up the tubes.

Also, in sleeving my PSU, I found that there are a lot of like, twistings and pairings among the cables. For instance, if the connectors were compared, port 1A wouldn't necessarily lead to 2A. Does that make sense? I'm wondering if that matters a whole lot. Part of me figures it's just power, so what difference does it make? Another part of me thinks if Seasonic did it this way, it has to matter, right?

The sleaved tubing looks cooler to me,
I've not heard of any issues sleaving tubing.

What fittings do you have? , they look like plastic.

It's not the tubing his having problem with, it's the psu sleeving.
