    There's also the option of (carefully) stripping the psu, and re-casing it to suit your needs.
    -Although I don't think that's an option with the BeQuiet! psu.

    Listan have actually done a decent job in terms of maximising space in the SFX formfactor, so it wouldn't really save much for this PSU :(


    I'm still waiting for the fail-boat from China, so in the mean time i grabbed some braid from Chilled PC so i can have a mess around.

    The other day i just chucked a bit of heatshrink on the power connector on the PicoPSU:

    Old school hair-dryer of pain:

    Looks crappy, but it insulates the terminals :)


    Thought i'd have a pop at a SATA data cable tonight, i only have the moulded connector though so i had to use a larger ID heatshrink (12.7mm) (the braid isn't too bad as it expands and then pulls taught over the cable)

    Any way, enough jibber-jabber:

    The boring run of the mill red defacto SATA data:

    This is the 10mm - 3/8" whatever size you want to call it, that is black and red with a dense weave:

    Cut the appropriate size and melted the end to stop it splaying out:

    Pushed onto the cable:

    Roughly cut some heatshrink:

    Heat with a lighter for much faster results than a hair-dryer:

    Then i added a cable-tie just to keep it held together (on the off chance):

    Leaving me with:

    Great looking mod, you've got a lot of kit in that small case :thumb:
    The cable looks nicely sleeved, I especially love the colours you used for the sleeving, never seen any like that before, butthen again I havn't looked very hard:rock:
