I want to sleeve my PSU but have a HX850, is it worth buying an AX series psu to sleeve?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I've had my current rig for about 2 years and I'm bored with it. I think a great way to spruce it up would be to sleeve my psu, but I don't know if I should upgrade to a fully modular PSU first. What do you guys think? Are the new ax860s worth the price?

Short answer: No , don't waste your money

Long answer: If it's just for aesthetics you can probably buy an ATX extension and eps extension from Bitfenix alchemy. The HX has modular cables save for those two cables. The rest you can buy:

* AX 860 is $150 on Newegg after coupon + rebate , so if you can sell your HX850 for about $100 then maybe... spending $20-40 on cables is preferable if you just want sleeved cables
