No need to worry with that PSU, all of the cables are black. It may 'Dull' the white a little but it'll look fine thumb.gif

Bitfenix actually use black cables on their white extensions and it doesn't really show, pretty sure it'll be the same for you.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Id like to sleeve those last remaining little cables in the top right of the photo but i don't have the tool to remove the fan connectors in-order to get the sleeving on; fortunantly you cannot see them with the side cover on but I know they are there and it bugs me mad.gif

You don't need a specific tool to remove the fan pins from the connector. If you have a paperclip it will do just fine. Just push the paperclip into the pin on the side of the connector and then pull on the wire when the pin is compressed and it will come out.

Worst case, buy white electrical or masking tape and wrap all your wires in it

It won't make the wires thicker?

Yes. Marginally. You also have the alternative of painting them.

Thinking on moving from my SS X to a Silverstone Strider but those blue jacks.. oh man.. they just wreck my scheme to pieces lol! Anyone knows where you can buy covers to hide the ones you don't use?

You can easily unsolder then and rit dye them.

Or order the actuall plugs and solder new ones in. thumb.gif

I'm guessing I won't be able to keep the warranty that way. nerdsmiley.png

Would spraying them work instead of using dye?

Getting the original connectors is a huge mission, I seriously have no clue where I could find them.

I'm gonna answer your other question to me here.

1. Get a big piece of card, cut holes for the sockets. Put the PSU upright, card on top. Then mask off all the black ones with painter's tape. Now buy some Kobra Big Black graffiti paint and do two passes on the exposed blue sockets with 2 mins in between. One aiming up and right, one pass aiming down and left. Don't worry about paint getting on the pins.

2. Or just use white PCIe connectors, but dye them blue. 5 mins in boiling water with 5g salt and a tiny tiny amount of Dylon#18. See pic below. It might not quite match your theme, but the plug and socket will be identical colours, so it will look natural.
