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.
