Hi.

I just realized that corsair cable kits come with the capacitors attached to the Y / V sense wires. Also, I saw Cablemod cable kits where they used it.

I would like to know -

Why they use it?
When they use it?
Should I use it too for making custom sleeved cables?
What happens if I don't use any capacitors?

As I am using 18 AWG cables for all types of sleeves and connectors, I guess this is a very important issue for me right now.

If anyone knows, please help me out.

Attached here the pictures of capacitors used in wires.

Thanks in advanced.

well I've actually never see that before, but capacitors are for stabilizing voltage under load, to smooth out spikes, but if you want to use capacitors you must know what kind of capacitors they used, there's a bunch of then like low-ripple and higher frequencies, and you have to use the "right" capacitance of them to use
