    Hi all. I'm sorry for the vague title, but I'm struggling with a stiff 24pin ATX cable. I'm guessing its from all of them being bunched into one sheath (Corsair cx430). Usually i'd just take off the sheath/sleeve and sleeve each cable separately but we don't have sleeving here. Any ghetto ways of doing it? Failing that, could I use thinner, more flexible wires and just rewire the PSU? Even 1mm should be able to handle the current needed on the 12v rail, am I right?

    I'm not sure if it is sane (or even good) advice but in my experience most of the rigidity is a result of the insulation so you could try warming up a section of the cables with a hairdrier (gently) and see if it becomes temporarily flexible for you to route.
