You'll spend $100(or more) on sleeve, heatshrink and tools (the first time) if you do it yourself. Factor in the time it takes to do and the frustration of messing up and redoing wires and it's really a great deal imo.

Let me know how it goes. The Cable Management nightmare that my TP-750 has is terrifying. I'd post pics but they would melt faces.

Paracord. Costs less and is probably higher quality than whats used here.

Dude $100 is nothing for the gratuitous amount of work this kit will save me!

 

 

When are they available?

Looks very nice and the price, considering the work involved is good, but.. can you order a PSU from Corsair already with these ? I mean, as it is it's great for people like me who already own one of the PSUs compatible with the cables, but for people buying a new PSU now, it would be a nice idea to have the option of buying the PSU already with sleeved cables, saving you money. Being a low volume market, you would probably have to make a special order from Corsair, but I guess it could work.

I'd definitely buy a set if they made them for the HX650 and I could get them somewhere in the UK tongue.gif

I think the HX650, at least the current model, will be discontinued. The HX750 and HX850 are a CWT design and are 80 Plus Silver, while the HX650 is an older Seasonic design and is 80 Plus Bronze. Seasonic has newer 650w PSU designs, but from what I've read they are more expensive, and Corsair didn't want to buy that more expensive design.

i like my black sleeved ones, that came with the psu

still, its nice theyre doing it..

i dont care really, coz i dont want a window in my case, ever. and i have no intentions of looking inside of my case unless im switching a part or something :b

for the guys who like it, i see no harm

bit pricey though, as lots have said

These cables cost as much as an SSD.
