Question for Sleeving a Silencer Mk III 850W

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello All,

I'm a first time builder and I plan on sleeving all my wires to give it that beautiful look that I have seen so many of the builds on here have. The PSU I plan on buying is the PC Power and Cooling Silencer Mk III Series 850W. Below is a picture of the cables that will come with the PSU.



As you can see the connections to the PSU are all Metallic-Circular Modular Connectors (I hope my vernacular is correct) and are Ribbon Style wiring.

My Question is what would be the best way to sleeve using these Metallic-Circular Connectors?

Any insight is greatly appreciated. I just want to make sure I understand what it would take prior to buying the product.

Cheers

Really have no idea, may be that you can unscrew those connectors. It looks like the manufacturer has put heatshrink over the ends though.

What are you planning to do about the other non-modular cables? Will you be opening up the unit?

Yes, I do plan on sleeving the non-modular cables. However, I plan to only sleeve up to a point inside the unit as I do not wish to remove and re-solder the wires. After reading a few guides and forum posts I have read that is the best and safest option for the non-modular sleeving.

As for the cables I came up with the idea of just removing the current heatshrink on the Metallic-Circular cables and break up the all the ribbon cables. From there I would sleeve each individual wire followed by using a single larger piece of sleeving to cover the metal and the wires together, similar to what is shown in the picture above.

Again this was just an idea I came up with have not read anywhere if this is a viable course of action.
