PSU Sleeving


In the never ending battle to clean up the cables inside your PC, Kore Computers (a local Australian based company) have given the Australian modding community the opportunity to clean up the dreaded cables that come out of your power supply.


Sleeving has been around for ages. We started doing it with colored tape on our IDE cables years ago, slowly this got more and more advanced and we now have some of the best looking rounded cables around that can be picked up from your local computer shop for under $10 US.


In the beginning, Kore Computer offered to sleeve a power supply for us and promised we would be very happy with the job. At the time we were just in the middle of setting up our new test beds and received two brand spanking new power supply's from another company. We boxed them up again and sent them straight over to the friendly staff at Kore who was kindly offered to sleeve both power supplies for us and for use in this guide. Unfortunately due to the power supplies being from the States, the switch on the back of one of the power supplies saying 110 and 240 hadn't been flicked and one power supply quickly saw the light.


Kore let us know and proceeded to replace the power supplies with two brand new dual fan Leadman LP-6100 400 watt power supplies (Thanks guys!). While this isn't an article on the power supply, on a side note we must say that we have been using this power supply for some time and we haven't had a single hick up no matter what we throw at it - be it an Athlon 64 system with a Radeon 9800 XT or an Intel Pentium 4 setup.


The sleeving looks amazing and it's that little bit extra which helps in creating a much tidier case as well as increase air flow due to less obstruction. Kore Computers offer sleeving in a range of colors and charge per the meter. While this is only available to Australian customers, we would highly recommend that you look around your local area to find where you can get this done also.


It's not very often you have one of those products that look good and is cheap at the same time.




If you're looking at tiding up your power supply cables and live in Australia there is no need to look any further then Kore Computers. If you're outside of Australia, load Google right now and find where you can get it done nearest to you.
