    But they don't look as good as *really good* sleeving.

    And sleeving is fun :p

    Available in all shades of Black !

    OK, if you don't fancy DIY.

    I prefer to have a colour choice and do my own.

    And it's an extra 25cm of cable you have to hide.

    This is a neat idea and all, and it's great if you're doing a quick cable tidy or mod, but there is no substitute for putting a lot of time into sleeving your PSU just the way you want or need it, and doing it meticulously so that it looks like a completely professional job.

    That extension defeats the purpose of braiding, as it just adds clutter, instead of hiding it.

    +1 and a bit more resistance to boot.

    Everyone should buy every cheap pc part they see, and install them asap.

    For a second I thought I'd see literally braided cables.

    These things are great. Not everyone can sleeve like a pro...and these dont void warrenties. Its just a shame they dont offer different colours...yet.

    I think these are a NZXT showing they watch modding styles, communites and trends. Good for them.

    It's an extension. It's what you use, when you need to extend your mobo power cable :duh:

    The only way it could be used to improove the appearance of cabling, is if the standard part of the psu mobo power cable was concealed - all the other cables would have to be modded to suit of course.

    Believe it or not I'm going to order one of these for one of my servers. Not for asethetics, but to use as an extension. the 24 pin connector on my old 600W Seasonic PSU is *just* long enough to make it to the socket on the motherboard after passing through my cable management (read: cable hiding) holes but I want a little extra so there's no strain on the motherboard.
