Do you have to sleeve everything?

Hey, I'm about to build my first computer and was wondering if you have to buy cable sleeves or does it still look good without them?

You are building your first computer and you are already worrying about how it looks? Concentrate on getting it running first.

If you have bought a quality PSU the cables will be sleeved. Putting real sleeves on other cables requires special tools and knowledge. Shrink wrap is one way to avoid some of that.

I have also used small plastic electrical conduit, like you find in cars, for some applications.

Like Prox says, you do not need to sleeve anything.

But this should be a "lessons learned". Next time, buy a sleeved PSU.
