thumb.gif That is what I thought. 70cm would give you some slack for sure.

shoot, sata power, you can make your cables thumb.gif

edit: buy a bunch of compression sata plugs and some eps pins (for the modular side of the cable to inset in the psu), and some sleeve if you want. Nice diy custom sata power.

I was planning on getting this: http://www.icemodz.com/#!/Sata-Power-Cable-for-Power-Supply/p/35779141/category=7063815
Costs me $30 per cable.

Or yeah, I can do my own cables, but then I need to track down the right parts.
The connector is easy: http://www.moddiy.com/products/TKG-Premium-SATA-Power-Easy-Crimp-Connector-%28Black%29.html
The cable, not so much: http://www.moddiy.com/categories/Electrical-Wire/

Are custom sleeved (by me for an example) PSU cables going to be more flexible than "stock" ones?
Thinking about buying all the tools and some sleeves.
Which material for sleeves would you recommend? Those are available in my "local" modding shop:
SHD sleeve
Nylon
Nylon Multifilament


(Know thats a bit of an offtopic, but there are some great modders here... biggrin.gif)

The flexiness of the cable depends on the sleeving used.
Most cloth sleeving should be very flexible, while most plastic sleevings are more stiff (at least by my experience).

I have ensourced cables in all my builds, they are semi flexible but hold their spot fairly well once you get them there... I enjoy them for that reason much more than stock.

Here is my amatuer review of the X2M

And how much do I need to spend on all the tools required to sleeve my cables? I was also thinking about sleeving fan cables, could also daisy chain them.

Just a word of caution. Sleeving fan cables to look good is ok and not too bad. Sleeving PSU cables to look good is much harder!

Check out the sleeving sub forum. Also lutro0 videos on youtube

Don't go for paracord, it's awful. Good sleeve will be dense, and springy when you pinch it into itself. Stretching the sleeve too tight when measuring cable length will leave you with shortened sleeve when you actually put the wire inside it.

The molex till works great for some PSUs, not for others. Some of them have thicker termination plugs that makes getting the sleeve out more difficult than it should be. For this I have used the sunbeam tool, similar to the molex tool but a bit more rigid and the prongs are a tiny tiny bit longer.

Don't bother daisy chaining unless it's an absolute must. It takes too much time and the results will never look as clean as single sleeved. Sleeving fans is quite easy once you figure out how to de-pin the termination plugs.

Thanks for the input! What do you mean by single sleeved fan cables? Like sleeving each other separately instead of daisy chaining them?
