    Lightbulb Cheap and simple way to sleeve obnoxiouis case cables (like USB 3.0/3.1 etc.)

    I think it's difficult to find a case that does not have USB 3.0 on front panel, some come with USB 3.1 type-c too. Every useful but troublesome for modders. These cables are big, bulky and its difficult to put a nylon/cloth sleeving on them in the usual way (and plastic sleeving simply looks ugly). I ignored this problem with my old case. With new case, i decided to tackle down this problem and i did it! If the sleeve wont go over the connector why wont we approach it from different angle? Lets wrap the sleeve around cable!

    What is needed?
    - needle
    - nylon/polyester leather grade thread
    -~6.35mm sleeving (Techflex Multifilament)
    - lighter

    Total cost less than $5. Sleeving cable this way of course, has a flaw, there will be a seam along the cable, but given that its only visible from one angle/side, we can always somehow hide it inside case and enjoy sleek and nice sleeved look of that pesky USB 3.0 cable. The method is universal, you can use to to sleeve other difficult cables, like USB 3.1, SATA data or PSU power cable. End, result does not look that bad, doesn't it?
