By now you may have already seen the name Cablemod, especially if you were in the market for aftermarket (heh) PSU replacement cables. They came out of nowhere really with mass produced individually sleeved replacement cables, as opposed to extensions, for 3 of the most popular PSU series from Corsair, EVGA and Seasonic last year and have since expanded to include be quiet! as well as a series of DIY cables and the equipment for the same. I was one of the first to get my hands on an E-series kit around launch time, but it was a pre-retail sample and was slightly different from how the retail kits would be. That particular sample resulted in an overview on online communities I frequent, but now that I have my hands on a retail kit (and cable combs too!), I wanted to make an overview article here for those interested. Thanks to Thomas from Cablemod and Hank from Performance PCs for sending the samples.
Given that I have an EVGA PSU (multiple ones, actually) that is compatible with their E-Series kits and we took at look at the EVGA cable kit already here, I requested the Cablemod version in the same color. They do offer this in several color options, including dual color versions too. The contents and specs are identical in all cases sans the color, so let’s take a look at the specs of the red cable kit:
Compare to what we get with the EVGA kit:
We see that the Cablemod set actually offers more options and cables out of the box so this is a good start already. The cable lengths are also similar to the stock cables from a PSU as well as the EVGA replacement kit, so that’s not going to be any different. Another common theme is the same 1 year warranty for both kits. I liked that they are including the dimensions and weight of the product box that the cables come in- a lot of consumers rely on mail boxes for items and this would inform them if it would fit inside or if they need to make alternate arrangements for the product delivery. Lastly, there is a list of compatible PSUs for each kit here. As you can see, this is compatible with the EVGA Supernova G2/P2/T2 lineup unveiled so far. I would have liked to see more information on what kind of sleeving material was used, and also what the average cable thickness was so one could get cable combs accordingly. Let’s now take a look at the cables on the next page.
