LF braided extension cables!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
So I decided to start making color theme to make my interior look nicer because just moved to NZXT Switch 810 case which haves window.

Im thinking black/white/light blue (cyan) as the color theme, like my case haves smile.gif.

First Im going to get extension cables but I few problem with them:



  1. Where to buy them in europe? That there isn't like 25€/£ for shippings.

  2. Can't find matchable light blue/cyan (or whatever its called) extension cables to fit my Lamptron fan monitor, the color is somewhere like this:
    206

    This is the color that I like Warning: Picture! (Click to show)
    350
    but In that shop you can see through that braid and that's what I dont want / they don't have ATX 24 extensions.


  3. I was thinking to get white Bitfenix extension cables but wondering how it looks connected with white connector vs original black?

    White: Warning: Picture! (Click to show)
    248
    Black: Warning: Picture! (Click to show)
    300

  4. If getting those Bitfenix ones, they aren't plastic like other braids, its like those mice braids sodoes it look as nice? Thinking to get some light later.
  5. If I get 8Pin PCIe extension for future graphic card when my this moment GPU haves 6Pin, will it connect when there is 2 extra pins?
  6. What braiding manufacturer or should I go with MDPC-X or does he make extension cables? Hows the costs?

1. Depends what you are buying.
2. Your fan monitor is on the outside, the sleeving will be on the inside. Hadn't you better match with something on the inside?
3. The header on your Asus motherboard is light blue, neither white nor black connectors look correct here. Unfortunately, there is no connector commercially available of the correct colour. This is something I looked for myself, I even emailed Asus to ask which paint they use, but they didn't want to tell. So just take the nicer cables and don't worry about the connector.
4. That's really up to you to decide what you find nice to look at.
5. Depends which ones you get. Bitfenix sells either 6 pin or 8 pin extensions, 8 pin won't fit in 6 pin header. Corsair's own brand use the 6+2 pin system, so you can use the same cable for either type of header.
6. Our own Lutro0 and also Martin from Psychosleeve are the well-known custom sleevers, but they are both in the States so check the shipping costs. Nils (MDPC) doesn't do custom sleeving, he sells the sleeve and shrink and crimp tools for you to do yourself. I'm not sure about any high-end sleever in Europe but I'm sure there must be some. Regarding mass-production sleeving: I've read people being happy with both the bitfenix and corsair sleeves. But avoid mod/smart extensions, I bought those myself once and they are terrible.

1. Im just buying braided extension cables... I checked one german site and there was 25€ shippings just for those few cables, how ridiculous mad.gif
2. Well, It would be nicer that whole thing matches, thats my point on doing this color scheme. And If I would put there for example: red, it wouldn't look that nice and the fan controller would look outsider.
4. I haven't seen that Bitfenix cables in real life and don't have chance for it, or haven't seen it on someones computer yet. So can't decide.
5. I googled and read one site where somebody asked same and there were answer that it works unless there is something to blocking the remant pins but I just realized that that 7870 (this is the one Im going to get or depends what kepler is offering) haves 2x6pin, so I might want to get 6pin cables.
6. Okey, well I can't afford to pay mail from the states, it just costs too much.

Thank you for your answers.

You can get everything from one place! I linked to ebay so that you could see the article in your own language, but if you click though to the seller (http://www.specialtech.co.uk/) they sell all those bitfenix cables.

I believe you can post ebay links anywhere except the sales section, could be wrong but I have some listed in my guide and have had no issues.
