Are asiahorse cable extensions good?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I am building a new PC, but taking the old non modular power supply over from my old PC. I want to get cable extensions so that my new PC looks somewhat decent. The case I've chosen is the Thermaltake Core P1. Will Asiahorse Cable Extensions on amazon be good for this case? Also, I've seen different reviews say that they come with cable combs, and other reviews say that they don't. Which is it?

Look at some video reviews, physically see for yourself. Also look at the package description on whichever website you're buying from. Some packs may have combs, some may not.

I don't know what that means. And they're like a cheaper sleeving quality. PaulsHardware has reviewed them I believe.

Oh I just meant, Amazon themselves have branded items. Its like Bestbuy has their house brand, same with Radio shack, though Amazon would have house brands for clothing, office products, beauty products etc.

 

Dont matter.

Bitwit and Paulshardware have reviewed them, and both reviewed were very positive, I'm just wondering if anyone on this forum has any hands on experience they could share about.

They're ok and unless you're planning to run extreme overclocks you shouldn't worry, just make sure connectors aren't loose once you're done


I tend to reply with memes because I lack social skills and don't know how to express myself correctly.

This build has a Ryzen 5 1600 on a mini ITX B450 board. I was thinking of trying to get it to the speed of a 2600 maybe.

It should be fine. They are said to be alright overall for being direct from China. Bitwit (Kyle) did a video on sleeved cables, Asiahorse was included.

That's an ITX case?  Why in the world do you need extensions?  What are you extending?  What PSU are you using?

 

You only need extensions for long cases where the stock cables are not long enough.

Because the power supply I'm carrying over from the old PC is non modular and ketchup and mustard cables... I'm hoping to make this PC look as good as possible without spending a stupidly high amount of money.

Sounds like a crappy PSU. 

 

Why not get a good PSU?

Those are expensive. You could spend that money to get $100 RGB fans and LED strips.

LOL!

 

Voltages are going to be so low at the end of the cable that there's going to be nothing but PSU related issues with this build.  :D

LOLOLOLOL!!!!!!

 

And not ONCE does he mention what the wire gauge is or measure the resistance/voltage drop under load.

 

At least he says:  "This video is in no way scientific and is completely subjective."

Eventually I'm going to replace the current PSU with a Corsair RM650x or some other PSU with equivalent quality, but I'm on a tight budget as it is. There will be no overclocking whatsoever and I may even underclock if I think there may be any stability issues...
