Cables do indeed look very nice and look like the E-Series replacement kit from Cablemod costing 99 Euros. Can anyone quote the price and delivery times for the EVGA offering? Where in Europe are they shipped from?
 
Besides talking about the looks though I think there is a more serious consideration worth mentioning which is with new processors and motherboards the build process has changed. More CPU Power, more heat, more sophisticated water cooling solutions often mean bulky motherboard heat sinks and coolers occupy spaces where cables could be run. More prescriptive (and better) cable routing built into cases like the NZXT 710i I am using makes for easier cable routing but choices are limited as is the space behind the motherboard, I mean the ATX cable on my brilliant Supernova T2 850 Titanium is not only difficult to flex its 20mm thick. Why do I mention this? Well because imho the days of the old inflexible, difficult to manage and flex power supply cables are numbered they just are not fit for purpose in combination with other components as part of a modern PC build. Flexible, sleeveless braided cables are the way to go and should be provided as standard not as an expensive addon that costs almost as much as the power supply itself in some instances. This is not a specific whinge about EVGA I think all power supply manufacturers need to start thinking this way. I have attached some images which show, what turned out to be the infeasible cable twisting of the ATX and EPS cables needed to complete my build which is currently on hold until I can get a replacement cable kit like those being discussed here.

Any chance of G5 psu compatibility? I would love a cable kit of these for my 1000W G5.

I like the idea of these but I frankly wouldn't need all of them except the 24 ATX, 8 EPS and a couple of SATA.

In comparing kit 100-G2-16KU-B9 (https://eu.evga.com/products/product.aspx?pn=100-G2-16KR-B9) with kit 100-CK-1300-B9 (https://eu.evga.com/products/product.aspx?pn=100-CK-1300-B9), what are the functional differences besides colour?
 
Specifically:
Are the pin outs on 1600 G2/P2/T2 different to the pin outs on 1200 G2/P2/T2?
Or is the more expensive kit aimed at the beefy 1600 PSU and therefore using higher gauge wires (AWG16 instead of AWG18)?
 
Finally will you be restocking these in the EU store sometime soon?

Quick question,
All of the Stock cables for my 1600P2 have caps in them and the sleeved kits do not, what effect will this have on my MB and dual 2080 hydrocoppers?
24 pin = 3 caps
vga = 1 cap (2 per video card)
cpu = 1 (2 to M/B)
if they are not needed why put them there on the stock ones? should I move the caps to the sleeved cables?

Sajin,
OK, but are the sleeved kits less susceptible to ripple due to cable gauge or manufacturing material, or is it just not necessary to have the caps?

Not sure you'll need to ask evga that question... https://www.evga.com/about/contactus/

I think the better way to look at it is that the 1600P2 has excellently-low ripple when using cables without capacitors, but has even lower ripple when using cables with caps designed for a specific power supply.  Power supplies at the quality level of the 1600P2 are really just fighting for bragging rights when it comes to the amount of ripple under stress tests that push power supplies far beyond their actual rated specs.  The amount of ripple that can occur with either set of cables is far too low to be concerned about potential damage to components.
 
Myself, I have a 1600 T2 using our individually sleeved cables, and it's been running that way for a very long time.  I don't have any concerns over it, and I can push the system to easily surpass 1200W at the wall.  Would any ripple be improved by going back to the stock cables?  Sure, but that doesn't mean that the power supply is anywhere near a hazard because ripple may be slightly higher.

DO these come with cable combs like this?



 
kostacurtas
Is there any compatible comb set for the 750-850 G2/G3/P2/T2 Power Supply Cable Set?
 
Do we know what is the width of the cables in this set?




I haven't received the sleeved cables for my G3 yet. But from what I gather while searching for comb options the mobo/atx power connector has wires with 2 different diameters making any currently available comb options flawed since the combs are either too tight and break on the bigger wires or they are too loose on the smaller wires. I don't understand why EVGA wouldn't offer a solution to this, but whatever.

Since the cables were only $40, are a lot cheaper than the alternatives and I have more confidence in their reliability I went with the EVGA option. I've read reviews from people using other options that had problems ranging from crossed wires to spliced cables to smoke coming out of their case. I don't want to worry about potential issues with my power cables and possibly damaging any of my hardware. I also don't want to use extensions...

I've decided to lace my cables since I have nothing but time right now. I can lace all of my cables for less than $5 worth of thread. Combs cost a lot more than that. If you're interested then Google "psu cable lacing" or "psu cable sewing" and watch the videos. I've seen at least 3 different videos on it. I personally think it looks better than combs as well. But it does take some time to do and the appearance will come down to how well you do it. I also read a detailed tutorial on another forum. I don't know if I'm allowed to link to other forums though.
