    I've used vinyl dye from an aerosol can before to paint a SATA cable, it works well. If you do decide to give it a go, just make sure you use the absolute thinnest coats as possible and don't try and patch up areas you've missed until the next coat. From my limited experience the stuff likes to blotch up and it does ruin the job.

    Thanks guys, I'll check it out. The vinyl die looks like it could be a winner. I assume you get it from a car parts place like Supercheap, etc.

    Just about finished my cabling job, I have bitfenix braided sata cables. They are only available in 30cm lengths, I need a 45cm one for my optical drive, how do you braid one of these and where do you get the braid from?

    Nice work from your friend. :thumbup:

    Are those cables from your PSU the standard ones that came with the PSU? I'm thinking of buying an 850W PSU and if that is how the PSU cables come with the AX850, I'll grab one of those Corsairs.

    The header was already blue, lucky because i didn't know how to sleeve it.

    The other side?? Nah nothing to see there ;)

    Pretty nice sleeving job mate. Blue heatshrink and blue cable ties would have made it better, also the heatshrink could have been a bit shorter. ;)

    Not that I can really talk, my first attempt at sleeving was megafail.
    I ran out of sleeve and pretty much just gave up. :lol:

    Nice and tidy. :thumbup:
    The white sleeving will look wicked.

    Here's few shots from the example build in my BitFenix Raider review.
    I'd appreciate any feedback you guys might have to offer. :)

    The only thing id suggest is a piece of al to run along the side of the psu, meeting up with the hdd cage. This would allow the fan to still produce air flow as well as the effect from the lighting. The main thing this would hide is the cables leaving the psu.

    Rearranged the connectors on the SATA power but all the sata data cables are still way too long :(
