If you aren't looking for shorter cables or unsleeved extensions, SilverStone offers the PP06 cables. The PP06 series of cables are designed to be fully compatible with all Strider series power supplies and are full length cable replacements. The standard cables provided by SilverStone are not individually sleeved.
Just removing the cables from their packaging makes them look much more appealing than cables that have a single wrap around the entire bundle. The sleeving is a much softer nylon than the hard, loose, plastic nylon mesh that comes with the stock cables.
Here we see an ATX 4+4 and 24-pin Main connector in stock form and individually sleeved form. There is a huge difference in visual appeal and the individually sleeved cables are much more flexible than the stock cables. Note the end of the sleeving is not secured with shrink wrap.
The breaks in the sleeving where there are additional connectors all have shrink wrap to secure the sleeving. With the softer nylon wrap, you have to be careful not to snag the sleeving or else it might start to fray a little.
Something that we haven't seen from any power supply manufacturer to date is a cable to support Slimline SATA. For those unfamiliar with it, it is a new connector designed to support thinner 2.5" SATA drives. Western Digital is the only one using it right now, but it should start to become more prevalent very soon.
Most of the cables for the PP06 series are right within what you would normally find out of the box. The prices aren't too bad considering what you get, ranging from $6.99 to $12.99. This can start to add up quick if you aren't paying attention, but if you're short on time or lack the confidence to get the job, it is nice to have the option available.
