Default Questions on sleeving computer cables

Hey everyone! I'm considering adding sleeving to the cables inside my PC for added protection and to enhance the look. My Antec Earthwatts PSU came with unsleeved cable and I kinda hate that now. Does anyone know a good kit to get? I prefer either something blue or black mesh. I need something easy to install. I don't even want to attempt to remove individual cables from their connectors. Any ideas? Thanks!

Luke or Jfen did a phenominal job on theirs, and had pics i believe... I think its jfen in his folding box, an Antec 1200 build.

You usually need to take off the connecters, and though I've not done it, it looks easy, but time consuming.

But what do you do when you have 3 sata power connectors on one cord? They don't look removable.

The ends should come off.

You remove the ends, and make slits in the netting, pull out the cables, do them up...

Read this thread: Q: PSU mod - remove SATA power "molex" connectors? - XtremeSystems Forums

Looks risky, but something I'd probably be willing to try if I can find a sleeving kit cheap enough. Thanks!

Anyone know of a good cheap kit? Or have any other helpful info?
