You can either order/make customized sleeved PSU cables. This will run pretty costly - but ultimately looks clean and awesome. You can also get various colors, or mix and match.

Another option is to order cable extensions. They plug into your existing PSU cables, and then convert to the nice-looking extensions. example

I have used carbon colored extensions, and I still have the "stock" black modular PSU cables coming from my PSU. You can tell if they are extensions by looking at the PSU itself and seeing if they are individually sleeved directly at the PSU, or they are extensions like in my case -

I never like to criticize other people's builds, but since this has come up:

Just my opinion BTW, although a few people I know agree, but I want to stress that I know this is subjective.

However...

Personally, I just don't like individually sleeved cables. I think they look horrible. I like the sleeving like Corsair does on their AX PSUs, that is one large sleeve to hold all the wires in any one harness. Personally I think it looks way better. If I was going to sleeve anything I might consider doing the hard drive power cables, but since they're in the back and you don't see them, and they're black anyway, I couldn't be bothered.

I think cables are a little like children, except they should not be seen nor heard. I have my cables routed so you almost can't see them at all, just bits here and there.

I know, many people love the individual sleeved look. We'll just have to agree to disagree on that I guess.

Just for comparison:

wouldn't go as far as to call them horrible, I mean I'd prefer an individually sleeved set from a generic german-flag-colored cable set any day, but have to agree I do prefer group sleeves too.

Too many people purchased the AX series for the black cables and sleeves alone.
I think it's going to be a trend, other psu companies will soon follow.

Is anyone else having trouble using the provided fan screws to screw in your fans to the case? The threads are too short. =/

Only at the back of the case. On top (where I have my radiator) I have no problems.

On the 600T you just sqeeze them on the top and bottom in the middle. Or push the top center down and pull it away from the case.

OK, you got me. Maybe "horrible" is a little too strong a word. Lets just say I vastly prefer unseen cables over sleeved ones.
