Hello, I'm interested in sleeving my cables with UV sleeves from newegg. Buuuut as with any other Noobstor I have questions.

1. What do you do with the octopus from the power supply? Can you fit that sucker in one of those sleeves?

2. I heard you have to pop out the pins on the connectors in order to fit the cables in the sleeves, what if I'm only going to sleeve the small ones.

I'm somewhat inexperienced and any tips, suggestions, and instructions on doing this basic mod would be extremely helpful. Thanks guys!

You can get a pin remover for the larger stuff, but they should have sleeves larger enough to cover all the wires together. check out this link, its got some good info for how to do it.

Most kits come with 1/2" braided sleeving, which is the right size for the 24-pin cable. It's a lot easier to get on the braid with the connectors removed; there are sets of pin removers for all types of connectors used in a PC; but the only ones you really need are the Molex pin remover and the ATX pin extractor. SATA power headers are often permanently installed and not removanle; but they are removable on some PSUs, if they are then they can be taken off with a small flathead screwdriver.
