    Hi guys,

    I'm thinking of buying some custom braided PSU extentions, but it's also occurred to me that I could also sleeve my own PSU cables, the thing is, I have a BeQuiet! Dark Power Pro 11 1000w that has a fixed 24pin cable (the rest are modular), so I was thinking that I could braid just half of the cables, so inside the main part of my PC would look braided but when it gets into the rear of the case the braiding would terminate about half way (the rear of the case is enclosed and not view-able) so this wouldn't be a problem from an aesthetics point of view.

    My main query is, is this possible, any foreseeable problems? I would just use heat shrink at the halfway point to stop the braid from coming loose?

    Has anyone done something similar? Would you do it again?

    Thanks in advance for any feedback :)

    Why not just buy extension's it may work out cheaper.

    I'm currently looking at them as well, but initially I wanted a custom colour setup, but think it'll be quicker to get a set?

    There are a few places that will do custom colours and are not to pricey.
