I want to get cables from @CableMod, but I have a hard time finding what wires I should get. I want black sleeved wires with black cable management combs, mostly because of the combs since it will have the wires more straight. However, I don't know if it would be better to just use the cords that are included with the power supply then buy cable management combs to put on the cables.

What should I do?

 

Hopefully some of the information about my pc specs will help:

Motherboard: Asus ROG X570 Crosshair VIII Hero
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5900X(I hope)

GPU: ASUS TUF Gaming NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080

Power Supply: ASUS Rog Thor 1200W Modular RGB

@DankDoodles the stock cables from that PSU are sleeved, but they're also very thin (I think 1.8mm if I remember correctly)? You could go with the stock cables, but we also support replacement cables for your unit as well if you would like colored options instead.
Our RT-Series kits will have everything you need for this setup. :)

Higher end psu's come with black cables as is.

 

But just a warning: you do NOT need a 1200w power supply. A 650 or 750w RM or TXM unit will be fine

You really won't have to worry about anything. Power supply stock cables come heat shrinked

Would this work for the cables that come with the power supply?

Will depend on what PSU you get.

Those cable combs are for individually sleeved cables (e.g. CableMod kits).

 

They won't work for cables like these:

It will depend on WHICH PSU you get, and what / how the cables are sleeved.

If they are individually sleeved cables, they will work.

 

The picture were the stock cables included with the Corsair TX / RM / HX PSUs.

Using that as an example, those cable combs will not work with those cables.
