    This is my first thread..

    I have seen all the paracord and nylon sleeving, but sadly to sleeve every single cable in I will need at least 30meter of them and I simply dont have enough money.

    So, here I present to you The Poor Man's PC MOD.. (My whole PC mod is still WIP, hope I can post some pictures in few days).


    PSU CABLE SLEEVE with SHOE LACES, yes, shoe laces... 30meter long shoe laces :D


    Shoe Lace sleeve quality
    The quality, pictures says it all

    Looks like a Spiderman's symbiote :geek:

    Start Sleeving
    30 meter shoe laces for less than $3

    I'm using low price FSP Super Sonic 450 :)

    This is how I make the tool to open that 24 pin, just an ordinary MacGuyver multi tools:rock:

    Careful, its very easy to get burned when I tried to shrink the heat shrink cable.

    +rep for lateral thinking, ingenuity and genuinely making me laugh out loud for the first time today :clap:

    I'm not even going to ask why 30m long shoe laces are available to buy :hehe:

    I'm not really a fan of sleeving like that, but I've got to say, very good solution, and came out nicely indeed :thumb:

    I will create a new thread for my PC mod.. since this is a Guide thread, and i want it get indexed in Modding Guides - The Index - http://forums.bit-tech.net/showthread.php?t=140973


    And now, i want to deal with vibration damper for my fans.
    Instead of buying 3$ rubber screw for each fan, i prefer tearing my mouse pad and buy some rubber rope (pre sleeved at 3$ per 100yards :D).
