What color shrink would you use for color-x sleeving? I'm thinking black, but would red look better? It's a black/red/white ROG theme.

@krajee: Either use black or white. I wouldn't go for the red and probably not for white either.

Guys I think I found a psu that fits my needs!!

It's the OCZ ZT 850W. It's a black power supply, not too long, not too pricey, black (and grey) connectors, no capacitors/ferrite cores, and a 1-1 pinout! **** yeah! =)

The only downers are the fan (which is a little bit noisy under load) and the lack of an MOV (whatever that is xD).
I might just change the fan and void my warranty 'cause I don't really care.

What do you think about it?

If that is true -my back hurts too bad to try to look into it- that would bring great joy to my heart as OCZ is one of my favorite companies. thumb.gif

@Lutro0, yes you're correct. I believe the corsair stuff is made from paracord like the rest of them, e.g., nzxt, bitfenix, and maybe modright (not too sure what they use). And I'm also not sure if they give out length options. It does set a good budget solution but as you said, it doesn't replace a premium custom solution. smile.gif
Btw, one annoying thing I noticed with paracord is that it really sticks to velcro, meaning velcro can easily tear it if you're not careful enough. It doesn't happen with the higher end sleeving though.

I'm pretty sure that the NZXT extensions are not paracord.

I have a couple (though they will be replaced by my own either extensions or sleeving an entire PSU), and they feel like a plastic material rather than the fabric feel of paracord.

5 - SATA

Nice power supply, although, it only comes with SLI/CF from 750w and on.

No it's not. They have a 550W ZT model too

I see my mistake! I wrote ZT although I meant ZX. But as you say I think the ZT models would be fine for sleeving, too. However I wanted a Gold certified psu so I ordered the 850w ZX.

Gotcha.

I'm trying to find a new PSU for myself as well and may be buying that ZT model (or a similar one) based on the Hardware Secrets reviews (and if someone can confirm a 1:1 pinout).

I had thought about getting a Thermaltake TR2 600W, but on further research it seems that the model I was going to buy (TR-600) is crap. Back to square one.
