Any tips for covering the ugly parts of Seasonic's modular cables?

More specifically:

Is there any way to make a shroud or something? It's kinda bugging me.

I used a thick black sharpie and covered everything.

Looks pretty good if you do it right and take your time to get in betweeen all the wires and everything.

Works well until you have time/desire to fully sleeve the psu.

I know this is off topic, but do you have you RAM in the correct slots? Usually the ram does not go into adjacent slots like that. I could be wrong.

Back when dual channel first came out 1&2 were typically on channel 1 and 3&4 were on channel 2. Shortly after, just about every manufacturer divvied them up to 1&3 and 2&4 since any general user will typically populate slots in order and automatically assumes dual channel will be achieved with two sticks.

Yea, but Biostar made the corresponding slots adjacent. Red to red.
