http://www.frys.com/search?search_type=regular&sqxts=1&cat=&query_string=sleeved+cable+extension

would these extensions cause any kind of power drop or fluctuation in current? they are basically for the lazy person who doesnt want to spend the time sleeving EVERY individual cable

I use NZXT sleeved extensions for my EPS 12V, 24 pin, and 4 8 pin PCIe, they don't cause any trouble.

the PSU's fan is underneath the PC.. wouldnt block anything.. it pulls air from under the case and expels it from the back... the top/side/front are all sealed anyway..

and I guess it would just be a cover by that definition

You are not making any sense. The only PSU venting is bottom and back. If it's a cover on either of those places it will be blocking the airflow through the PSU.

Or its possible you're not understanding... The psu has a fan on the bottom.... And it's also got a grated opening in the back where it's power plug is.... The top.. side and front where it's cables (24pin, pci-e, sata, etc) come from is all closed.... I am looking to make a cover that covers the psu and the area in front of it... Obviously if the underside and the rear openings are OUTSIDE the case.. nothing airflow relevant would be covered....

See here for example:http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/threads/quick-nzxt-psu-cover-mod.204306/

Kinda hard to understand incomplete questions like
Quote:
Would using cardboard as a psu shroudor cover be a bad idea?
That is the first you've said of what you wanted to do with "psu shroud or cover".

"Shrouds" in computer cases are usually used to direct / focus airflow to or from components. wink.gif

But hay, I'm an electrician either. biggrin.gif
post #4576 of 7172
Yeah I think that would be fine, as long as no other vents get covered which they won't! biggrin.gif

Most PSU's I've had have a fan at the back which push the warm air out near the power plug and sometimes a fan at the bottom or just ventilation slots, as long as none of those get covered I can't see why it would be a problem smile.gif

Blocking airflow WILL cause the power supply to overheat and die eventually, I had this happen once with one that was mounted outside the PC as a second supply in it's own box with little ventilation, they do create lots of heat!

Do you have any ventilation on the bottom of your case? when you make an aluminum one, you could make a fan mount with a green led fan tucked inside it to give a radioactive glow coming out of it.....
