That it is, that it is. Now if only there were sleeved cables...

But yes, neat and tidy, I like it.

I have never seen them in person, but I've read in a few places that the Bitfenix extensions
are pretty decent for non-custom ones. Since you have quite a bit of room at the back
side of the M/B tray, you should still be able to make things look tidy.

If you want custom extensions, well, you get what you pay for in my experience. A properly
done custom job is not going to be cheap AFAIK.

Pexon makes custom extensions (also a forum member here), as does lutro0 customs,
and probably a few other places I'm not aware of (might need to do some googling on
that one ).

Although the 2 places Alpenwasser mentioned, Lutro0 and Pexon, Are great they are Very Very expensive.

I got all my 24 Pin Power, 8 Pin EPS, 6 Pin PCI-E and 8 Pin PCI-E cable extensions from cables4pc, He/she is based in Surrey and his/her work is amazing and IMHO is just as good as the ones Alpenwasser mentioned but don't require you to chop off your nut sack, Scoop out a kidney, Cough up a lung and sell it all on the black market to be able to afford them.

I've got a friend who bought the Premium PC Extension Kit and to my eyes and fingers I really couldn't tell the difference between Cables4pc's work and Pexon's work, Cables4pc for an entire set i.e 24 Pin Power, 4/8 Pin EPS, 2 x 6 Pin PCI-E, 2 x 8 Pin PCI-E costs £40 and the exact same thing from Pexon costs £70 and in all truthfulness I could not see or feel where the extra £30 went but I'm guessing it's because Pexon does all of the work himself.

http://www.cables4pc.co.uk/

The other cables i.e fan cable extensions, Front panel extensions and SATA extensions I got all from Bitfenix, Their cables are awesome, They look professional, Feel soft and cotton like, Grade "A" stuff and their prices are amazing as well.

I don't work and I'm not endorsed by C4PC but I've used their products in all my builds and can honestly not recommend them enough, So here are a few pics from their site as an example of their work, These are the one's I currently have in my rig and as well as looking great they have a soft material feel to them -

24 Pin Power -



8 Pin PCI-E -



6 Pin PCI-E -



*NOTE* You can get any colour combo and cable length you want you just have to send him/her a message

Hope this helps

They look really good, I was looking around last night after you guys started recomending places and found a shop on eBay that look to be really good. I priced up a 24pin 8pin 6pin audio header and front panel cable delivered all for €44. I am going to pick them up at the end of the month when I am paid.

Will also post a link when I am home(can't do anything on this crappy windows phone)

I'm not sure if something like that exists. You need to fix the sleeve to the wire(s) somehow,
and heatshrink is the usual method. The reason you can have heatshrinkless sleeving on
ATX, EPS and PCI-E connectors is because you can melt the sleeve onto the pin and hide
that in the connector. I doubt if that is possible with USB headers and fan connectors. The
only alternative I see is gluing the sleeve to the wire(s), but it might be tricky to get that
to look good.

Alternatively, you could try to get heatshrink in a different colour.

If you'd spent half as much on the case you could of put a fairly beastly GPU in there dude. It's a nice neat rig but... Plus the 800D is a useless air-cooling case. Not trying to slander your work or anything mate it's a nice tidy build but parts choice could be a little better.
