Hey guys, I've finally saved enough to buy the all of the rest of the things that I need for my build but I'm stuck on making the purchase because of the cables. I definitely want custom cables or cable extensions from cable mod or something better if there is a better alternative but my big issue is that I don't exactly know what  specific cables to get. I would be really grateful for some help. If it's visible I want it nice neat and color schemed. I just really want it to look nice since I'm dropping so much money on it. Going to buy some cable combs as well.

@BrandonIsComputering for extensions you can check out our basic extension kits, it offers the main visible cables. https://store.cablemod.com/product/cablemod-basic-modflex-cable-extension-kit-dual-62-pin-series/

 

However your PSU is compatible with full replacement cables if you would rather have that instead of extensions. Your primary cables will be the 24-pin ATX, 4+4 EPS (or 8-pin EPS) and then your PCI-E cables (6+2 pin - two of these) as @brob mentioned. :)

If you're unsure on the cables, just by a replacement kit for your psu. It'll come with all the same cables the psu ships with. I definitely recommend cablemod, but there's about a month wait. If you have any questions, I've noticed @CableMod is very helpful and quick to respond.

All cables need to be for EVGA G2 psu. EVGA does offer some colored cables.

 

You will need

  1. 1 x 24-pin ATX (main)
  2. 1 x 8-pin ATX 12V, original is 4+4-pin EPS
  3. 1 x 8-pin PCIe (not the same pinout as #2), original is 2x6+2-pin and 1x6-pin PCIE
  4. 1 x SATA power

You may want to get a couple of additional SATA power in case of upgrades.

80+ ratings certify electrical efficiency. Not quality.
