Belial88 Posted January 26, 2013 Share Posted January 26, 2013 I would like to sleeve part of my PSU. I've searched on this, don't get on me, I've read the 'modular is okay, non-modular is not' stuff. My question is about sleeving the main cables on a non-modular PSU, my CX500 - the 24 pin, 8 pin cpu, and 2 x pci-e cables - but only part of it. As in I'd cut off the heatshrink, but leave the original sleeving on, and then paracord wrap just the ends, and then put some heatshrink back (or tape, or whatever). The idea would be to sleeve the ends of the psu cables, the visible parts, but maintain warranty and maintain the black sleeve at the base of the PSU (I don't want a big blue and white bulge at the bottom of the case where the PSUs snake from the PSU to behind the motherboard panel). I've read about opening up the PSU is bad, modifying main cables is bad, but I've also read conflicting stuf about it's okay to modify the sleeving, cut off heatshrink. Thanks. Basically I just want to sleeve the last 6-8 inches of the main cables only, which would just mean I'd have to cut off the original heatshrink but otherwise do nothing else to affect the PSU. Or I can even leave the heatshrink intact if it was necessary to maintain warranty. I'm aware that extensions would be a way around this, but extensions are expensive and I don't think I can manage to fit in so many extensions.
