First try at 550 Paracord

Hey everyone. wanted to post up my in progress sleeving job and maybe get some input on it. Cable combs are in the mail. I will have 2 PCI-e cables, a 24 pin, and an 8 pin to do along with the rest of the fans and such. I'm loving this Corsair Carbide AIR 540 I got not long ago. Best case I have EVER had.

Looks good man, I like how they run over the fans.

Might be nice if the fans were round, but not likely very noticeable.

Thank you. I JUST finished extending and wiring the PWM wires for each fan into one plug. What a pain that was.....I've been looking at the corsair air series fans, but I like my cooler master EVO fans. I've also been looking at the sickleflows though.

Additional Comment:

Got more finished up tonight. All that's left is the 24 pin and some other small stuff. Not really looking forward to that, but god does it make a difference. also cant wait for my cable combs.

Thanks. I wish I could get the wires more neat on their own, but they dont like staying where I put them. haha. Even if I wasnt posting pictures, it would still drive me nuts seeing imperfect wire routing. Any tips on keeping the bunches straight without cable combs?

Looks neater than my attempts with PVC type braided sleeving. Does that Paracord snag bad when you feed the wires through?

Thanks guys. Im slowly working on it as I have time. I got my cable combs from lutro0-customs.com in finally and LOVE them. Although I did have to take my connectors apart to put them on, but oh well. Now I know to put them on as I sleeve.

Chartiet - No I dont miss the side fans at all. infact, I much prefer the simple look of this case. The cooling is worlds beyond my Antec 300 even after I modded it. Much quieter too.

BlastMaster - Thank you. I watched A LOT of tutorials on sleeving with paracord before even thinking about trying. I had a few times where I had to cut my way out of a snag, but for the most part its not bad at all. I found that if you take a piece of masking tape and put it on the connector that it slides through very easily without snags. if you wrap the tape right, it comes right off too.

Heres some updated pictures with the cable comes. I need to get 2 new fans for my CPU and resleeve them with the cable combs for each. Also still need to do my 24 pin.

how many feet of cordage did you end up using for this? I would think that getting 100' would work but then I realize that there are many long cables and that 200' would be more apropriate.

Also are there any tools you recomend I get the tools Im finind on amazon look cheap and are expensive...

You're going to have to measure the length of the cables, figure out how many wires per cable. Add at least 10% extra for mistakes. Not sure about the tools though.
