Thinking of getting 100 ft of these.

There are different types, but they are similar in size from what I have seen. The most used kind of paracord is 550. The one in you link will work great.

So I want to help bring it down here. I was very inspired by this gallery adn especially by Lutroo who has trully been my inspiration. I am currently sleeving my PSU and will have pictures when I am done. My fingures hurt so much my girlfriend and I spent and entire weekend sleeving and im still not halfway done, I figure it will take this entire week.
On another note, I had a lot of trouble oopening my PSU. I couldn´t do it so I just ended up sleeving all the way to the end and not inside which is fine. Ill post pictures to show ho it looks and hope you guys aprove please comment when I post. By the end of the week ill be done with it. Can anyone help me though and give me suggestions on how I could open the PSU?
Thanks guys you all are trully an inpiration to get going! I was going to be lazy and buy those extensions but thats no fun.

Thanks for the kind words bud, thats why I make the videos in the first place.

And to answer everyone on which crimper I use, I use the MDPC crimper and it by far is the best I have ever used. Its worth every single penny.

I also plan to make a video on how to use it and such after I get done moving and get back to making them. thumb.gif

hey guys im back been tirelessly sleeving now for a few days and my hands can barely type they hurt so much. Anyway I have decided im going the full monty and sleeving each and every cable ill post everything when im done. Anyways, just wanted to share that I wasn´t able to open my corsair power supply no matter how hard I tried so im just sleeving to the very end of it and leaving some of their crappy sleeve on it then covering the cables with black tape. I figure thats fine what do you guys think? How can i get ir open maybe I can correct the error of my ways hehe. Any ideas? Would it be to unfathomable for this forum for me not to sleeve all the way in?

Do you guys just accept loosing the warranty on your power supply as a cost of sleeving. I removed 1 small piece of heatshrink and Corsair warned me that they will RMA it this time "but not again"

It's one of the consequences of the hobby... some things mean more to some people than they would to others. I for one hate anything stock, or bland. Aesthetics are what I like, and they must be good.

I've never owned a power supply that I've had to RMA (nor have I ever had one that cost enough to worry about it, really), so it's never bothered me.

That said, though, I am building myself extensions rather than doing a full sleeve.

Definitely a cost of making computers your hobby. I broke my PSU's warranty just so I could put a quieter fan inside of it...

That said, though, I am building myself extensions rather than doing a full sleeve.

I had one go due to a lightining strike and one go due to broken ground wires on a 24-pin extension. Corsair should have denied both (it was not their fault lighting hit my house,and it was not their fault my extension failed) but they went ahead and did it for me.

EDIT: with a schematic and an understanding of the protection circuits in the power supply I bet I could have fixed it myself,but they offered so I accepted.

EDIT: I have 12 rigs now (managed to sell two) 5 are dedicated folders so I guess you could say "computers are my hobby" It is just that the "computer hobby field" is so big.I may want to do folding and watercooling and networking exercises with my group and you want to make things have a personal look,all is good.
