Power supply cables have come a long way since in the past few years. They started out as a clump of wires zip-tied together. Then we started seeing cable sleeving on the wire clump. But most recently, we are seeing more and more individually sleeved wires. Most people will agree that individually sleeved wires look incredibly classy, but unless you buy a high dollar PSU or take the hours to sleeve them individually yourself, you don’t have a lot of options. NZXT has come up with a solution for you with their Premium Cables Starter Set, and sent a set to Gamers Daily News to try out.
What’s in the Box
The Premium Cable Starter Set comes with four 250mm extensions for your existing cables. This includes a 24 pin motherboard, (4+4) 8 pin motherboard, 6 pin VGA, and a (6+2) 8 pin VGA cable. Each cable has a male and female connector, so they will work with any existing power supply as a simple extension.
Once you find a machete and spend a half hour cutting your way into the packaging, you will get your cables out. Upon closer inspection of the cables, you will notice the quality cables’ construction is as professional as it comes. The sleeving itself is firm and taut, with just enough slack to give you easy movement but not enough to cause excess sleeve bunching. The heat shrink holding the sleeving to the wire extends into the connectors leaving no portion of the wire visible.
