Easiest cable sleeving method

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am about to be installing my new water cooling loop when I get it and I was looking at other things to do while I have my pc apart and thought of sleeving my cables.

I looked into kits and videos but I dont really want to remove the cables from the pins to put on sleeves and such. I was wondering if there is any other method of sleeving cables or if you can put sleeves over the connectors like molex, 4 pin etc.

If not, I also looked at cable spirals but they look cheap and will have gaps in the bends and such, then I thought of taping the cables with electrical tape but I dont want all the sticky residue left behind from the tap afterwards, any other easy methods? is there stuff like electrical tape that isnt sticky that you can wrap around or anything like that?

Hello,
They do not make sleeving to go over the connectors, to do this the connectors must come off . But you can use split tubing it looks a lot better then cable spiral , and you can pick it up almost anywhere , Used allot of this stuff back in the day On my I3-540 build ! , and also on allot of the cars we race .

I'd go with cable extentions.
You can pick any color and pattern you want with these, AND you don't have to mess up your original cables. Just connect the extentions, tuck away your original cables behind your mobo tray and you're done wink.gif.

If you don't like the cables coming out of your PSU at the bottom inside your case, make yourself a false bottom. Not very hard to make.
