    I wanna tidy up the inside of a case by coloring all the cables black.

    I don't have the time to sleeve everything.

    Just looking for a cheap and fast way to coat all the cables to eliminate the crazy color look.

    Any sprays that anyone's used with any success?

    I would suggest against spray painting the cables. Though rubber paint might be flexible, the surface of an insulated wire is a terrible surface for any paint to adhere. If sleeving every individual wire is tedious, sleeve the entire stack of wires instead. Try looking for sleevings that are slightly larger than the common size.

    If all else fails, you'd have to fork out for a pre-sleeved PSU. Fully sleeved aren't that expensive, for example Corsair CX500. More expensive ones will come with tighter weave sleeving, making it totally black.

    You could probably plastidip them. And if you don't like it, just rip it off.
