Easiest PSU to sleeve?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Is there any type/brand of PSU that is easiest to get a clean sleeving job on? I am assuming full modular? Budget is as cheap as possible, not over $150 unless it makes a huge difference.
Thanks!

The easiest is fully modular, less is partly modular and worst is non modular. Some power supplies coat some of their wires differently too so watch out for that. I used to have a corsair PSU that coated their 6 pins so it was like a sata cable basically. All 6 wires in a plastidip thing. Power supplies with designs similar to that would be very annoying to sleeve. I'd say get a cheap fully modular/partly modular PSU to sleeve. That or buy a bunch of generic extensions and sleeve those instead.

So something like this would work?

I have already sleeved my current psu with paracord but want to upgrade and couldn't stand the semi modular design.

I assume so. The cords in the picture look like most regular PSU cords which are just the wires stuffed in a mesh bundle and heat shrinked together. Cut off all the stuff on the outside and you've got your bare cords for sleeving.



Since you've got more experience sleeving than myself (having done none but wanting to) I would assume that PSU is "safe for the sleeve". thumb.gif

Oh and my overall recommendation for PSU's or whatever is just make sure it'll handle your wattage and doesn't ripple/has one rail/is efficient/ et al and stuff. Check out JohnnyGuru for great PSU reviews.
