<div class="quote-block">Corsair has silently launched a new product line which they announced on Facebook yesterday, individually sleeved modular cables. Yes Corsair has launched their lineup of sleeved cables. Now rather than selling a whole bunch of cables, Corsair is releasing power supply specific upgrade kits. LegitReviews got a chance to see the cables in person:</div>
</div>
<br>
Since its an upgrade program only, i see only corsair users benefit from it<br><br><a class="bbcode_url" href="http://www.maximum-tech.net/corsair-silently-launches-individual-sleeved-modular-psu-cables-8735/" target="_blank">Source</a>

Is there any company on earth that pays more attention to its enthusiast customers and what they want better than Corsair? Its like Corsair George sits here on OCN and tells the upper management exactly what we are saying we want and then they build it!

That's actually surprisingly cheap considering the cost of sleeving supplies and the amount of work that goes into it.<br><br>

Well now my x750 is no longer needed. AX850 + cables here I come.<br><br>
Needed to upgrade to 850+ for my next gpu upgrades anyway, now I have even more reason to lol.

Looks like a pretty iffy sleeving job honestly. Don't get me wrong, this is a FANTASTIC step in the right direction. But 3/4" of black heat shrink on each wire regardless of the sleeve color is a tad bit excessive/disappointing, if they fix this and/or change the plugs to match the sleeving color this will be a GOLDEN product that will attract many new very happy customers. They should also offer them by-the-cable at a diminished return price for those of us without 10+ Molex/SATA plugs.

Considering that buying extensions for my AX850 from FrozenCPU ran about $70 I'd say that price is fair....

Aw, no green <img alt="frown.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/frown.gif"><br><br>

The HX sets aren't compatible with the HX650:<br><br>
'Compatibility<br><br>
HX1050/HX850/HX750/TX850M/TX750M/TX650M PSUs only.'<br><br>
A good idea, just not for people like me <img alt="frown.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/frown.gif">

Great step in the right direction, waiting for someone to actually get them to give us close-up pictures and indepth review of the quality. Pretty sure Lutr0 is going to pop in here any second now! <img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/biggrin.gif"> As for the price, it seems fair but we'll have to wait and see the quality, type of sleeving used, etc. <img alt="thumb.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/thumb.gif">

From the pictures it looks like hideously long shrink wrap is used... If that's the real/final product I think going with ftw/paracord sleeving and doing it yourself would be a better look overall.

These are complete cable kits, not extensions like NZXT offers.<br><br>
I'll take a complete kit or full custom job over cable extensions any day.

Also Agree, I work as a temp making 12.50/hr (US) making harnesses such as these. Of course, later this year, I won't be making anything cause it's all going to china.
