I thought there was a thread around here for this but I can't seem to find it...

Anyways! I need some help deciding on what colors to sleeve my PSU with. I will be making custom wires and extensions. Basically, I'm just going to have a 4" sleeved section that plugs into the "real" cable. The "real" cable will be unsleeved and out of sight.

The colors in my case will be black, white from my light panel and nickle from the blocks and tubing. I know for sure I want to use white MDPC sleeve. That's the only color I have figured out. I want to do it sort of like this:

Idk if I should do grey or titanium grey. Also, would the white heatshrink still look good?

Sorry for all of the questions, I hope to get some help! Build log is in my sig.

Thanks! Jeffinslaw

adding either titanium or light gray will look great, and using white heatshrink would look awesome as well, make sure to use a heatgun on white heatshrink as a lighter will discolor the heatshrink.

Also make sure to use white wires for the white sleeve. thumb.gif

Thanks! I have decided to do the CPU, 24 pin, PCIE, SATA power, and molex in white and titanium gray with white heatshrink. I'm going to do fan cables in black sleeve with black heat shrink. SATA data cables will be titanium gray with white heatshrink!

Thanks for the suggestions!
