Cables and Sleeving question?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
my PSU is fully modular and the cables are barely long enough to reach where they need to be and my question is that if i do a single sleeving configuration on them will they have any difference in overall length I'm hoping for some reason they will be a big longer

No, they won't get longer.
Your solution is to cut the wires and solder in extensions. Stagger the cuts in multiple wire runs so the isn't a "bump" in the sleeving. Heat shrink all the solder joints.

or you could buy some extensions for say the 24 pin one you could and i have only seen this once solder it to the back of the motherboard same with the 8/4 pin one it really is something to see a mother board with nothing plugged in to them plugs but its still running

If anything sleeving will shorten the length a tiny bit due to the little extra bulk. I would make a cable extension for it as not only would this look cleaner due it it being an extension, but its the easiest solution to this problem.
