Sleeve myself? Or buy the cables from EVGA?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I just ordered an EVGA Supernova 1300W G2 for my imminent upgrade to a 3rd 780 biggrin.gif

I want to have some sleeved cables, but I'm not sure if I want to just buy them from EVGA and be done or do it myself. I have two young children and a very busy job, so my lack of time is definitely making me lean towards just picking up the kit... If I just want plain red to match my motherboard, is there really any advantage to doing it myself? If anything I would think they'll look better if I just buy them tongue.gif

Thoughts?

Putting the effort in doing it yourself could allow you to do something a little different, like different coloured wires etc. Downside is it will take a hell of a lot of time and I would say if you do not have the time to put into it do not bother. If you rush it won't be rewarding

Lack of time is the cause of most of my apprehension to do it myself. I've done a bit of sleeving before so I know it's time consuming.... I really doubt I would be able to do it in less than several months time.

Plus I just want plain red anyway.

Unless you want different color combinations, get them from EVGA.

Sleeving, takes a long time. For ma at least was a very unpleasant process. But, I had the time to get it done in one weekend. Never again, will I sleeve a power supply. With companies now offering sleeved cables, the only reason to sleeve your self is if you want combine colors.

And there are third party, small-business places like Ensourced Custom cables that'll sleeve your stuff in custom colors so even then, you still won't have to do it yourself.

I think we would all like to have the time to do it, not really lazy man it's unpractical for most. I am looking into making my own wires but I think I'd just lose my temper and give up lol
