    Here is a picture of what my sleeving looks like.

    This was my first venture into sleeving a power supply, so I apologize for the crappiness of the work done. Unfortunately with the flash on you are able to see the colours of the wire beneath the sleeving but in a dark case this will not be an issue as you can see in the below picture taken without flash.

    Looks like you did a good job to me.... As long as you like it, who cares how "crappy" anyone else says it looks.

    I had to cut off a capacitor on my 6+2 pin PCIE connectors in order to sleeve it. Ripple will increase a bit but since this is a 24/7 system it shouldn't be the end of the world. I did keep the caps so I can use them later if I so desire.

    Cap removed, I am going to hopefully get these sleeved soon.

    I sleeved the wires on my fan controller, I think it looks much better compared to the red, yellow and black that was there before.

    I am hoping to have this all ready for the weekend so it can fold in the Chimp Chanllenge.

    Got the rig up and running today. Just doing some testing on stock settings, temps are amazing right now. This is with pump as low as it goes and fans turned down to barely spinning!

    lol, well this cpu has a 130w TDP. so it is a hotter chip overall.

    Here is it running at 4.0 GHz, anything more than this and it throttles too much.

    The fractal fan controller has very few components on it. You could probably fix it if you have the know how with a soldering iron
