I just did this on my new pc's PSU. Its not that bad really just sit back and watch a game while you do it. I had just bought a pre packaged kit, it came with like 4 diff sizes of wrap and heatshrink. They kind of work like a Chinese finger trap, you just have to push it onto the molex conector and inch it down. It took me like 45min or so to wrap all the wires. They came in different UV colors. They look pretty good, I dont see them though as my case has no window.

Good luck and hope that helps
Dave

You generally have to cut off the connectors to sleeve the cables and then reconnect them with a specific tool. Then again, you can just as easily sleeve your cables with duct tape or something

I did not have to cut mine, it just took a little longer.

No no no, you dont cut off the connectors! Why would you do such a thing?!

There is a special tool (costs about 6 or 7 bucks) that is specially designed to remove the molex connectors. I had a buddy who did it the way Dav536 did it, but it took him the better part of an entire day to do it, and he recommended that if I do it I get the tool.

You can also get different colored molex connectors, and a new atx connector, and every other connector.
