Those are all my key components of my rig. now from those i need to build a sexy colour scheme. I'm hoping for the final product to look something like this...

But obviously not the black and green.
Now theres a few issues, not only can i not find a nice colour scheme ive never actually sleeved anything before. So i have no idea of how to sleeve wire, how to disconnect the wires safely then reconnect them after sleeving. I have no idea of what kind of sleeving i will need to get a finish like above, or where to get it from or how much of it i need, if anybody could share some personal help guides tips, it would be much appreciated. I will post the finished pictures when i finally get round to finishing it, also Just to let you know on the Phantom i have theres rubber gromits if you didnt know, but anyway i will only be sleeving the cables that have to be visible (e.g gpu power connector and so on) So yeah really big help here guys please post anywhere i can get the right stuff i need and can people estimate how much of the stuff im going to need thankyou OCN. (sorry if i have made punctuation error's im trying to type as fast as i can because i need to be up early tomorrow to go repolace my new 1tb i borought last week mad.gif.)

Everything you need can be found in this thread.

To answer a few of your questions, that sleeving you have pictured is MDPC-X. If you want to go cheaper, I would highly suggest either Techflex Clean Cut or Kobra High Density Cable sleeving. 1/8" is what you need for doing each individual wire.

Just measure your wire lengths on the psu to get a rough idea.Like the 24 pin is 24 pieces that are 2 feet long=48 feet.You get the idea.
