there's some tool where you can push the pins out and sleeve it with some black loom and heat shrink. But it's a lot of work to take out/put back together, almost too much trouble.

If your lucky or buy bigger loom, you might be able to slide it over some connectors, but It will stick out and look loose, but black.

on the silverstone note, I just returned my DA850 rev2.0 to east luna, sucks I had to pay return shipping. But they have good service, just bad CS hours (12-4EST ) When I bought it I didn't realize it at the time, but it came directly from Joel at silverstone in california. There was a price on the bill of sale from silverstone but the wholesale price was blacked out lol.

I wouldn't really recommend the DA/OP since they make a lot of noise, and even the newer revisions have stepped down (worse quality) components to subdue the noise. Read JG's review n the DA850, it has so-so voltage regulation and is average, I liked it for the time I had it, except the noise and lack of overall sleeving.

Yes, JG scores the DA850 low, but the OP650 is very high. I don't think anyone really needs more than the OP650 offers.
