There are a num­ber of ways you can mod your PSU ca­bles. You can re­place them en­tirely with a pre-braided ca­ble kit – there are loads of colours from which to choose and many com­pa­nies such as CableMod cater for var­i­ous mod­u­lar PSUs as well. You can even buy ex­ten­sion ca­bles if you have a cap­tive-ca­bled PSU. How­ever, there are few ways to ac­tu­ally make your cus­tom ca­bles look neat. You can use ca­ble combs to even out the spac­ing, but you’ll still need to bend your wires through rout­ing holes and around other com­po­nents.

If you’re look­ing for the ul­ti­mate ca­ble neat­ness, though, you can use thin acrylic tub­ing, which can be bent to shape us­ing a hairdryer or, even bet­ter, a heat gun, as with nor­mal wa­ter-cool­ing acrylic tub­ing. We’ll look at how to straighten your PSU ca­bles us­ing this method in this guide, and also show you how to spray your tube-cov­ered ca­bles.
