Generation 2 ATX 24-pin Cables
The ATX 24-pin cables come in a much smaller box. If I didn't know better, I'd say Corsair sent me some RAM. These are available in all six colors and come in two different models. One fits the AXi series power supplies while the other fits the AX860/AX760 power supplies. Each cable retails for $19.99.
Alas, each box contains a single power cable. Here we have the blue, green and metallic graphite motherboard cables. These are the only cables we were able to get in blue and metallic graphite.
It is the same sleeving and same quality terminations on each cable that we've seen thus far.
Rounding out our cables from Corsair are the black, red, and white motherboard cables.
Zooming in we can see that there's nothing abnormal with these either.
The price is a bit steep for a single cable but you have to have it to round out your set.
Corsair's solution to customized cables is quite simple and will take care of what a very large majority of user's want. Just pick the corresponding kit for your power supply, make sure you get your motherboard cable, and you're good to go.
Unfortunately they are a bit high priced as you'll end up paying $100 for a full set of cables. There is a bit of a tradeoff though as attempting to do this yourself would require a ton a time and effort, plus the materials, and unless you are really good at it, probably won't turn out the same quality.
One of the biggest attractions for many to the Corsair cables will be the selection of colors. Most offer cables only in black and white, and perhaps one more color. By offering their cables in six different colors, Corsair is sure to appeal to a much wider audience with these. About the only ones who won't be pleased are those seeking cables with multiple colors.
Prior to publication, several members of the TweakTown staff were aware that I'd received these cables. Upon taking some pictures and passing them around, requests came in rather quickly to share the wealth. We're all quite happy with them and will be using them for quite some time with them in our personal rigs.
