On a scale of 1 to dead pixel. I'd say they are about a 420 for visible.

Haha

I have an 8 pin CPU cable infront of me right now, Stretched out, I cannot see where the cap is, It's a lot of moaning about nothing as usual.

Even with the aftermartket braided cables you're not going to notice the caps, As usual it's people moaning and making a problem where there isn't one.

You've got a corsair symbol for a display pic, of course you'd say there isn't a problem

I legitimately think any PSU that has cables like that wouldn't fit in my current case.

I also have a Silverstone PSU that has caps in the cables and you can't see them and I don't see a problem with that either.

I am sure that our PSU team will come up with something that will look nice aesthetically while keeping performance top priority.

Individually braided cables is a whole different matter.....

lets hope that some one comes out with a SMD cap with the capacity to smooth out the ripple effect,
honestly.. I dont see why some one hasnt just made a long cylindrical SMD cap already (like the old wire would through hole resisters)
A cap like that could live inside the actual connector and direct solder on to the pins and the other end to the power cable.
not really an ideal solution for mass production, But im sure some people would find a slightly deeper pocket to pay for a custom one.
Id imagine the connector itself would have to be slightly longer, which would then possibly eliminate them as a possibility with some case and gpu combinations due to where the pcie power connectors are on the gpu and clearance they may not have in the case.

But I dont really see why a component which is in essence a battery, cant just look like a small really thin battery.
Granted the design of SMD caps Are to be surface mounted (hence the name) But if you do want them inline, then you do need them to be long and thin with opposing poles at either end (or be non polar, but still you know what i mean)

If it was resistance that was needed then it would be easy.
But Caps just arent designed to be inline.

And it does make a difference where the cap is. you dont want to smooth out a current that was essential smooth when it arrived at your cap, then send it down a line of what is really just a length of resistance, because that's where you start amplifying the problems.
All a cap is supposed to do is be at a set voltage and always get resupplied. if some where along the supply line there is a ripple, the cap is supposed to have enough capacity in it to still supply the correct voltage and then get recharged. Its just a little reservoir.
Therese not much point in punting the reservoir right next to the lake, then sending all the water down a river bed for a mile to town.
On a really hot day If that dry old river bed eeks away at your supply and you find its dwindled by the time it gets to the village, the little reservoir between the lake and the river bed would look to be in a pretty silly place, but if it had been closer to the town it would have barely been noticed

Excellent, that's all I'm asking.
