The plastic sleeving that came with my AX750 is very stiff, and doesn't allow a lot of movement - all of the component wires of the 24-pin main cord are inside one giant sleeve. If I remove the single, giant, plastic sleeving and put each of the 24 cords in its own sleeve, will that increase the flexibility of the cord? I want to do a little cable management, but with my 24-pin as stiff as it is, I can't really move it.

Thanks!
Individually sleeving should increase the flexibility of the cable. I have an AX850, but the first thing i did when I got it was cut off the original sleeve so I don't remember exactly what it felt like as one jumbo sleeve. Don't expect incredible flexibility though, just enough to work with.

Straight from the website:
"The photos were taken under neutral light conditions at 5500K (covered sky = true color reproduction) and represent the true color shade of the sleeve. Under different light temperatures, the color shade can be very different - that's the nature of color. This is very important to know if you choose a colored sleeve. If you like the color on the photos, you will see the same color shade when you look at the sleeve under 5500K conditions (covered sky)."

Colours do and always will change under different temperature lights. Just something to bear in mind. All the sleeve he sells look different under various temperatures of light.
Well that's good that he put the disclaimer there. When looking at the sleeve page, however (the page that displays the product), that info is nowhere to be found. Please correct me if I am wrong, I am referring to the product page: http://en.mdpc-x.com/mdpc-sleeve/sleeve.htm.

But to me it's not about the camera and lighting issue. The issue is that when a customer ordered combat green based on the picture on the website (the basis of what the item looks like), he/she was not satisfied upon receipt of the item. I have heard this here in this enormous thread, and I have heard it elsewhere on other forums. I looked at every single picture in this thread for one reason: to investigate the combat green color since I am considering getting the Sabertooth 990FX mobo. To me, when customers say that when they see the color with their own eyes, that they are unsatisfied... that's telling me something. Nothing against you or MDPC, I am just saying my 2cents.

Yea, you should be able to move it alot better once its single sleeved. And it should hold form alot better as well.

It's back on.
This time, since I can't seem to do it right, I'm leaving it in the hands of a more qualified friend (he's done tons of sleeving before, among other amazing computer related things).
And I'll try to take some nice pictures of when it's finished
I'm buying a camera (Canon EOS Rebel t3, more specifically) and while he's working on it I'm going to be practicing.
So hopefully it will look great. I can't wait!


I think it'll be an excellent way to start of my Sandy Goodness build.
O.o I may have missed the original thread on this, what are you planning to do bud?

Was a LONG time ago
I believe I announced it in this thread. I've had sleeve sitting in my closet for a while now.

Originally, I was planning on single sleeving every cable (in white) on my M12II. This was all supposed to be for my Nurglegasm project, but that soon fell through when I couldn't do ANYTHING with the PSU because I simply cannot do it. I have no idea what I'm doing wrong, but it just won't work for me.
Now I'm doing the single sleeve on the X650 that I'll be picking up soon. It's for $109 now on Newegg ($70 off )

It's gone to 100 but 110 is not bad at all

Nice, I just finished a PSU in black and white, I posted alot of it as a kinda guide format, feel free to check it out. The link is in my sig (aspros mod). If I may make a suggestion, try to get someone to make you white wires for the sleeving in white, as it looks so much better that way.

+1 on that! Makes the difference from true white and white-ish

Also, cheaper and more convenient way is to wrap the wire in white electrical tape before sleeving. Drawback is a stiffer cable

That's beautiful!
Wish I could get some custom cables. I was planning on spray painting mine white as well

Yeah, that's why I went with spray paint. Tape just wouldn't leave me with the flexibility I want.
