Cablemod B-Series DPP Kit

Regular readers will know the Cablemod kits well, but for everyone else they are of such fantastic quality that the price point makes it seem like we're robbing them. There is even a handy bag to store all of your spare cables, unless of course you're the type of 15 drive, quad-GPU person who will use them all.

The best thing, besides having a full compliment of cables, is the length. So many companies seem determined to save a couple of pence by giving us the shortest possible cables that routing them all can be a complete hassle. Cablemod ones have no such issue with generous lengths, particularly the always-too-short CPU power cable and SATA cables. It makes tucking everything away behind your motherboard a joy.

My old Bengal rig had purely orange cables, and the V850 came with black ribbon style ones, so it seemed perfect to blend these into the black and orange Cablemod ones. They do wholly orange ones (amongst dozens of other options), but tigers and black and orange so it had to be the bi-colour option for me.

As you can see there is no heat-shrink stuff here. Every wire is braided beautifully and the always important combination of robustness and flexibility. If you've ever debated whether they are worth the expense, the answer is 'unquestionably'.

Very nice dude they certainly give the system a nice boost with a splash of color and make it look like a whole new systemQuote

There are some great aspects to the cablemod kits, for one they just arrive completed in the post generally the next day. And honestly i'd say that is their greatest asset along with relatively good choice and wide compatibility. They do look ok and actually are marginally better than the Corsair or Silverstone kits, but quality, that is a stretch, consistent at a push. Straight away on the header photo you can see through every piece of orange braid where it's been bent at the end to the black insulated wire. Neither the wire itself or the braid is anything remotely special. £70 for what is quite a small kit I wouldn't consider great value and I strongly dislike how all of their 6+2's are dual.

I think they deserve some level of praise for what they allow people to do with relative ease but not really when it comes to quality or value.

Quality is actually great and they fall in cheaper than the Corsair kits including the models with caps.

Kits come with single 8+2 and daisy chained versions. Any variances are to mimic the stock cables that came with the manufacturer kits. *edit* but you can buy single cables direct and even customise your own kits nowQuote
