    Default Can I use black duck tape to sleeve cables?

    I would like to get the Black SilverStone SST-ST75F Modular PSU, but all the cables are not sleeved. I've heard sleeving is somewhat of a difficult task and I have all this extra black duck tape, so would it be a good idea and use black duck tape to sleeve the cables? . Or are there any types of tape that I can use for sleeving? Or should I just get sleeves?

    Tape is a VERY bad idea.
    Go to Pep-Boys Autostore and buy split or spiral loom.
    It comes in many flashy ricer colors.
    Worth a good looking over. http://www.badcaps.net/

    Most of the cables are sleeved, but not all. I would like to use sleeve or use duck tape on the connectors that aren't sleeved.

    I guess I can do that. The problem with sleeves is that it is very difficult to get the connector through the sleeve, or does that only go for the main 24 pin mobo connector? Again I've never sleeved before so I wouldn't know.


    Oh I like really like the multi quote feature. Very nice

    Well, they're all sleeved. But not after the first connector. I wouldn't use tape. I'd just leave it as it is.

    I'm worried about the wires not being sleeved all the way in the picture. I still hate the ugly look of the red, yellow, and orange color of the wires. I would like it sleeved all the way like in the OCZ GXS or FSP Epsilon power supplies.
