NZXT have been gaining popularity among the enthusiast community by releasing a range of competent and appealing cases, such as the Phantom. Today we are going to look at something a little different from the company. NZXT have released a kit of four very attractive sleeved extension cables. What makes them so appealing besides their great look is the price, which should be around £18/$25.
Let us take a look to see which cables are included and how easily a low cost item like this can improve the appearance of a system build.
The cables are packaged in clear plastic, shaped to fully display the product to a potential buyer. Each cable is shipped in its own separate section.
NZXT have included extensions for the two main set of power cables required for any build. They have included the CB 24P which is an extension for the main 24 pin connection to the motherboard. They have also added the CB 8P which is every bit as important to a system builder. The CB 8P provides an extension for the 8 pin power connection on the motherboard. The 8 pin power connection is often located in a tight spot so having this extension is a real bonus.
Another area that can benefit from these sleeved cables is a graphics cards. We all know that the powerful graphics cards available today often have 2 x 6pin connections or a single 6pin and an 8pin power connection. Having the individually sleeved extensions for these required power cables cleans up the appearance and can help improve the overall cable management of your build, allowing the thick cable from the power supply to be hidden behind the motherboard tray.
NZXT has included one of each GPU cable type to complete what we feel is an excellent selection of their premium cables.
These extension cables are very convenient and look so much better then the multiple colored cables attached to many power supplies.
- good build quality
- great looks
- very reasonable price
We would be hard pressed to find a negative comment about this inexpensive, yet useful little bundle. For anyone looking for a simple way to clean up the look of a system, this starter kit is an ideal solution. NZXT have once again found a great way to provide buyers with the maximum dollar value making this a “Must Have” item at KitGuru.
They should be available soon in the UK for less than £20 inc vat.NZXT Premium Cable Starter Kit review,
