Sleeved Cabling Head-to-Head: Bitfenix vs. ModRight vs. NZXT

Side By Side Comparisons




These images are going through each of the four samples as we go back over which cables are better, or at least why I think so. The BitFenix at the left is the cleanest looking of the three with the NZXT version in the middle coming in at second place here. They get second, because while I don't like the heatshrink on the wires at all, they have all black ends and a more professional look to the much sloppier looking ModRight cable on the right.




The order is a bit rearranged, but you can see obviously which is which. On the left is the clean looking BitFenix Alchemy cable, with nothing to complain about. There is the octopus from ModRight in the middle, and a clean and respectful job done by NZXT on the right. Also you can see in this image, the BitFenix cable is relaxed and forming to the transition from clip to table top. The two on the right are very stiff and will take some effort to get them not to "fold", but rather bend around inside of your case.




As for the higher gauge, but smaller diameter wires, the NZXT and BitFenix tied for presentation and professionalism in their final product. To decide between them, I went with one thing. The BitFenix pulls ahead due to the choice of coverings, as it is the only one that actually covers anything. The ModRight cable for the fan connector is the best looking of the bunch, but still not as nice to look at or use as the other two.




The BitFenix 8-pin EPS cable is again covered all the way into the clip with no means of visible securing methods, again making it a great looking choice for the investment. I do like that the ModRight 8-pin is actually two 4-pins. While it may be a bit harder to install in certain situations, I like that the guys with only a 4-pin EPS power plug can still enjoy the looks of custom cables. The NZXT on the right is just like the rest of the cables we have seen from them. They do have the fact that all cables will look exactly the same no matter the type, where BitFenix mixes a bit of it in on the smaller diameter wiring. ModRight, all I can say is too much is not always a good thing.
