I have no personal experience with them, but here was the sample rig from the Fractal case thread:

700

Looks good from, can't find any better photos though (note the Seasonic X series cables are very similar to the AX650/750/850).

hehe, that's a bit surprising tongue.gif

You can look for better pics in my album.

Those cables are awesome, I believe as someone also mentioned to me here, that it's made of the same stuff mdpc use. It's not paracord.

You should know though, that Corsair now supply sleeved cables kit for their AX Pro series.

Buying the kit might turn cheaper than buying single cables from Moddiy in this case.

Ive been keeping track of those, as sleeving tends to be my thing lol.

From what I have seen and also been shown preproduction, is that the hs is a little off, and that you can see the wire from the outside, like for example look at the white extensions and you can see the writing.

And dont get me wrong I love Corsair, but they are making a single length non custom solution, which means it still has its bad pinout and double wires(from what ive seen) and it will still look like a bundled mess in the end. What I mean about the pinout is that its the difference between a jumble of wires and a clean 1-1 wires in a row the entire way.

I don't say all of that to be a doomsayer, as its great to see a company try to put their foot into this realm.

I am thinking of doing a full review once a can get my hands on some, but until then I will have to say that they are good for someone who wants a cheap sleeving job, but it will never compare to a custom job.

I hope to slowly gather every example of sleeved extensions out there and do a video review of them all, to keep everyone informed on what exactly they are buying. But that will have to wait untill I get some projects I am working on right now.

My two cents on the pin removal - I discovered that for me it was MUCH easier to insert the tool into one side at a time when trying to remove a pin. This happened one day when I was trying to finalize my sleeving on Tiamat and I broke not one, but two tools! So I only had one tooth left on one of the tools and thought why do I have to try and get both sides of a pin at once? I didn't.

In fact, I found (and still find) that I don't have to apply as much push-in pressure or hold the wire as much when only trying to do one side at a time. In addition, doing one side at a time has cut down my pin removal time tremendously (sometimes I would have to try 4 or 5 times to get the wire free doing both sides of the pin at once.) Here is a link to my build log where I shot some crappy pics of my one side at a time process - CLICKY.

Give it a shot - it works!

The main question was about these cables:

They look very tempting indeed.

Hey folks

After my first delivery from Nils at MDPC-X, I have attacked my psu cables and here are the results

Before I post pictures, i would just like to say how utterly blown away I am with he service from MDPC-X. the little doodles on the packaging and my customized pin removal tool really did make the whole thing just a little more special,
Fantastic products and wonderful service, an absolute delight.

Anyways, i know my attempts are not perfect and i still have lots to do, my technique is slowly improving....i think lol

Hmmm... that red connector got to go! Get a black one! smile.gif

@Lutro0, yes you're correct. I believe the corsair stuff is made from paracord like the rest of them, e.g., nzxt, bitfenix, and maybe modright (not too sure what they use). And I'm also not sure if they give out length options. It does set a good budget solution but as you said, it doesn't replace a premium custom solution. smile.gif

Btw, one annoying thing I noticed with paracord is that it really sticks to velcro, meaning velcro can easily tear it if you're not careful enough. It doesn't happen with the higher end sleeving though.

so got some sleeving done, the 24 pin is complete, i m going inside the psu with the sleeve so it looks stock, but the size of the sleeve has expanded the space so i will need to cut a bigger hole in the psu, which i really did not want to do, but it will be done tomorrow,

anyway here some pictures, first time sleeving with MDPC its the best in the world
