    Have spent the better part of an hour trying to find this:

    I found a site (probably from a post on here) that does custom sleeving. They do MDPC sleeving for a reasonable price (let you choose two colours I think) and they harp on and on about their 'signature "C" bend' of the sleeved cables.

    PLease please jog my memory haha

    he is the original one from MDPC i think. Its not hard to do but it is time consuming. I love the MDPC sleeve personally over other sleeves i have used.

    No, found this guy which is what reminded me of the store. Prices were about $250 (maybe) for a full 24, 8, 4x6+2, and maybe a sata or two - so pretty cheap.

    Woah bro! Dat price!
    I thought maybe until I say the price - think their store had a white theme.

    Does anyone know the sleeving material name?? I wanna buy the sleeving and DIY.. There's not that much to sleeving.. Just time consuming me thinks.

    There's a guy on YouTube - Singularity Computers, he talks about custom cables n stuff. He does a good job too. Not sure if he takes purely cables orders though.. He normally does custom cables for client PC builds.

    Lutro0s custom paracord is pretty cheap, I will probably go that rather than MDPC

    DIY job will work out to be ~$150 cheaper than ordered sleeving. .... at ~ 8hrs work (for a first timer), is my time worth $19 an hour? haha

    Sure it is :lol:

    Never been a fan of MDPC sleeving really. I got fantastic results with paracord. Here's my first time attempt:

    Mod-DIY do custom sleeving for a reasonable price. It's not MDPC sleeve, but it's very similar. They use the heatshrink-less crimping method.

    Lutro0's cables are great, Martin's (psychosleeve) is PERFECT, however outrageously expensive. Also, these are extensions.

    The Mod-DIY cables can be custom made for your specific PSU, so you don't have to hide the original cables.

    I've been using them for a while. Just easier, and I've custom MDPC sleeved around 10 PSU's so it's not that I can't do it. It's too time consuming when these guys deliver similar results for a reasonable price.

    You might need to fix a few cables though, but it's not too hard.

    Nice job harrye - looks sweet. Why the cable ties though?

    Bit dodgey for $300, I guess if you are a perfectionist though :p ... what is the turn-over time?

    Some of their show-case sets look pretty sweet!

    I'm fine with doing it myself - done a few testers, and I don't have dicks for fingers (all the time) so I should manage - however the SATA and Molex cables look nasty...

    Ninja, the cable ties where there to give the cables a chance to *bunch* so to speak (so that they hold their shape once you remove the cable ties). I ended up using a whole heap whilst I got the cables in position then after a week cut them off and they stayed the same, even through transport too/from several LAN's.

    Some picks of the finish build in their (ignore the car parts)
    That was my first major mod and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Sleeving was something I wanted to do, sometimes offer it for customers at the place I work. Never had a complaint either.
    Paracord has the advantage of being relatively cheap (extac is a good source in australia, or ebay for cheap stuff from china. Quality is not comparable in the inner weave. But the outer weave is the same - can take photos to show the difference). and comes in heaps of colours.
