Cable Sleeving Gallery & Discussion - Page 136

post #1351 of 14329
I'm loving the pictures in here, and the look of sleeved cables =D. I was thinking about sleeving my PSU - OCZ StealhXStream in grey and the aqaublue from mdpc but I was wondering if you guys think its worth sleeving a cheap PSU like that? I paid about ~$35 for it, and sleeving would cost me atleast as much but I really love the look of sleeves =D

Personally, I don't think it's worth it UNLESS you just sleeve it in black with Clean Cut from furryletters and use the 3:1 heatshrink that koolertek sells to keep your costs to a minimum. I was in a similar boat and my desire to sleeve gave me an excuse to upgrade to a far superior PSU in the process

Nah i wouldn't bother doing that - invest in a better PSU first that will last you a long time.

Worth doing on a Galaxy EVO 1250? . Ordered the kit and 20 meters of extra small sleeve. Hopefully that's enough for my system, it's like 160 feet worth .

Hmm, yeah. I was thinking something along those lines of using sleeving to upgrade my PSU. Although I don't know if I want to do this right now since I just got my PSU a month ago, but I wouldn't have any regrets getting a really sweet PSU and sleeving it. Any suggestions on a solid unit around the 650-700W range?

If you want an amazing, fully-modular (good for sleeving) PSU, then get the Seasonic X650/750 or the Strider Plus 650/750.

The HX-series from Corsair is still *okay* but is aging and is not fully modular. Also, the new AX-series from Corsair will be fully modular, but the 750 and 850 units will be built on Seasonic's X platform, which is already available in the X650 or X750.

However, if this PSU is for your sig rig, you REALLY don't need 650-750W. You could get away with a solid 500W PSU without any issue. If you're concern is future upgrades though, a more powerful PSU isn't a bad thing as long as it's a good one.

What is your price limit? If i were you i would go for a 100% modular PSU (makes it , something like the Seasonic X-650 would be a very good choice - amazing power supply, looks awesome and is 100% modular.

Hey Guys hoe does this cart look.

I figured that there would be an extra 10 meters of sleeving because all of the cables on the strider plus 1000 watt are just inder 20 meters according to this guys measurements. (btw when his table says + a value for one of the cables take the previous one and add that to it)http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php...Story&reid=180

Yeah, the Seasonix X650 looks really sweet at first glance. And yeah, I'm looking to get a beefer PSU so I can leave myself open for upgrades in the future, and once I get my rig where I want it it'll just stay like that for a few years.

Well, I've got two votes for the Seasonic now lol. And my price range is around $120 - although I'd be willing to push it since this will be a permanent investment, although I don't want to be breaking the bank here just on aesthetics. To be fair, I also didn't do enough research into PSU's when building my rig, so I didn't invest enough into mine so I still have a *little* bit of buyers remorse when browsing other peoples rigs around here.

Also, is it worth getting a fully modular PSU with the intention of sleeving? Or is it better to save a few bucks and buy a non modular PSU?

A fully modular PSU will make sleeving EASY as crap! Also, you won't have to open the PSU to route sleeving inside the case, so you won't void your warranty. Also, you can definitely find a Seasonic X650 for close to $120 if you use bing cashback and find the right retailer. However, you could also get the Strider Plus 750 for $105 shipped with bing cashback at TigerDirect! It's really a great deal

All depends on what you're interested in though.
- Both are fully modular
- Seasonic is 80Plus Gold, Strider Plus is 80Plus Silver
- Seasonic is more $$$
- Seasonic can be a little quieter because of it's advanced fan controller, but the Strider is dead silent anyway
