    Default DarkSide Braided Cables - PREVIEW

    Most of us would like to have a bad-ass looking computer; we pick components accordingly to coordinate the colour scheme of build. However, 99% the colour rainbow of PSU cables are often kill the build aesthetics.

    Now you're start thinking of dressing up those cables by sleeving them. Consequently, as soon your remove the connectors or its stock sleeves; warranty is VOID!

    Also, you may not have the skills of master modder Bill Owen to sleeve those cables by yourself. Cable sleeving is a nuisance job, very time consumption and it can be hazard if you crosswired them. It can send your hardware on fire.

    Hey, don't let me scare you off. We are the warriors ....here's another alternative way to dress up those ugly cables.

    You can use the DarkSide extended cables from http://www.dazmode.com

    This is an exclusive Dazmode's ownline of cable sleeves.


    Features:
    • High-density
    • Available in 5 colors (Jet Black, Metalic Black, Alien Skin, Predator and Sky Blue)
    • High quality heat shrink tubes
    • Consistent length of heat shrinks
    • Affordable
    Jet Black (24-pin, 4-pin and 8-pin)


    Metalic Black


    Consitent lenght of heatshrinks, not too long as we often seen from the generic brands. Shorter less visible when the cables bended.


    High quality heatshrinks grip on tight to the sleeves when the cables bended.

    I think his shop is about 1/2hr drive from where I live.

    How is the GREEN project going? Perhaps you can pickup the Alien Skin green cables to go with your build

    It's going slow at the moment LOL, do you have a link I already have some black ones that would work well in my new build but if the alien skin ones look as good as they sound I may pick some up. I just picked up a new Mobo for now and am waiting on a case decision so to speak lol.

    I think most green colour are neon UV green through. I don't think Daz has any.

    I found this at PPC but not high density sleeves, longer heatshrinks and I think the wires are actual green.

    I think it's ugly.

    Having sleeved two power supplies myself I have to say.... NEVER AGAIN! While some pieces of work are unavoidable, for everything else there are extensions. I'd gladly buy extensions in the future.

    Until recently only NZXT had quality sleeved extensions. Nice to see Das throw his hat in the ring and give us more choices. Good man.

    (PS, Performance-POS can burn in Hell. Get that link outta here.)

    How would you say his kits compare to MDPC?

    I'm going to be sleeving a PSU and Dazmodes PSU sleeving kits are about 13 bucks a pop, of which i'd buy like 3-4 of, and the MDPC is about 170, LMAO!!

    Can't comment on the other brands because I never own them. I the only thing I never tried was from Thermaltake.

    The DarkSide is pretty tight fit, no play in the sleeve and the heatsinks. This is the most important thing you want to achieve when you DIY sleeving, if there are a lot of movement then when you bending or stretching the cables then it will expose the wires.

    I did sleeves two PSUs myself; like Earth said "never again". It's very PITA!

    If you want DIY. Daz does sell the DarkSide in linear foot from $0.36 - $0.79, depends on the size of the sleeve. To achieve best looking sleeves then make sure you get proper sleeve/heatsinks size for each wires. High quality heatshrinks are very important, get the one that give you high percentage of shrinkage so it can grip on the wire tight.

    Oh, one more thing, make use you have proper removal tools and prepare to have someone to message your hands afterward.

    $170 for cable sleeving....gotta be kidding....too much, there are a smart way to spend your hard earned cash and time on the stupid PSU.

    Lmao, yeah it's expensive as hell. I think I'll go with the darkside, it's just a shame they dont have green.

    If I'm doing individual cables, what size would i shoot for, 1/8? I'll still be ordering the heatshrink from MDPC, since it's precut, hahahaha

    I think 1/8" is for individual (spaghetti style) , for green color; I think Alien Skin is all he has. You can shoot him an email for assistant, he will help you to get the right sizes and stuff...etc.

    Have you think of us doing green accent?

    This way it won't classes the color of your UV coolant or board...etc?

    Have you think of us doing green accent?

    This way it won't classes the color of your UV coolant or board...etc?
    Well I'm building a pc for a friend of mine, and i painted the case silver and green. The interior is black and the board is blue, but that'll be MASSIVELY overpowered by the cathode kit and 6 green Apollish fans, lmao. I think black will suffice and add some variety. And thanks, I shot him an email inquiring about sizes, I also thought it was 1/8 but i want to be absolutely certain before ordering.
