Question Looking for extension cables - 24pin and 8pin

I'm looking for 24-pin EATXPWR and 8-pin ATX12V extension cables for my P5Q Deluxe motherboard. I checked NCIX and they have some but don't know if they are any good or what gauge they are. Does anyone have any suggestions?

8-pin ATX12V..

They will all do the same job. The ATX spec includes a minimum wire gauge IIRC.

Personally, I'd grab the sleeved 8pin and the black 24-pin, just because my case has a window.

I also have a window (Lian-Li V1000Z) and want to hide most of the cables but I need extensions. I want to individually sleeve each wire on the 24-pin anyway.

Eeek.....

Sleeving ATX connectors sucks.Good luck !!

I find the molex pins on connectors like the ATX20/24 pin and the eps connectors to be very much single use....Even the ones I remove with my professional molex tools generally don't re-use well.

I am actually in the process of sourcing out ATX/EPS extensions as well , for my thinktank project....

I've only found the 8" extensions you listed : I need ones that are 24-30 inches so I'll be either having them custom made , or making them myself.

just a tip:
pricematch those extensions to ones from direct canada.
i find that NCIX markups their cables a lot more compared to DC.
i had bought 3 pin extensions that i had pricematched to 85 cents whereas NCIX sold them 2 dollars a piece regular.
