EVGA launches SuperNOVA G2, P2 sleeved cable sets

EVGA's pre-sleeved cables for its SuperNOVA P2 and G2 PSUs are undeniably attractive, but at €64 a premium upgrade option.

EVGA has announced the launch of a new accessory for the modder in a hurry: pre-sleeved cable sets for its SuperNOVA G2 and P2 modular power supply families.

Launched in Europe this week via the official EVGA webshop, the cable bundles are initially available in a choice of four colours: black, red, blue and white. Each cable set includes a single 24-pin ATX cable, two 4+4 pin EPS12V cables, four 6+2 pin PCIe cables, two 6+2 and 6-pin PCIe cables, four SATA cables with three connectors each, one four-pin Molex cable with three connectors, and a single combination cable with two four-pin Molex connectors and a floppy connector.

Designed for use with the company's SuperNova G2 and P2 modular power supplies, the selling point for the cable bundles is the sleeving. Each wire is individually sleeved in braided cord, coloured to match the overall theme of your rig. Each sleeve reaches right down into the connectors at both ends, with no unsightly heatshrink poking out to spoil the effect.

Sadly, the visual appeal of the cables comes at a cost: each cable set is priced at €64 (around £53), and at present the company has no plans to make smaller sets or individual cables available for those who don't need a full complement of wires in their rigs. Compared to rival Corsair, which charges around £27 for a sleeved cable upgrade kit for its HX and TXM modular PSUs, that's a hefty fee.

The sleeved cable kits are available in all four colours now from the official EVGA webshop.

Launched in Europe this week via the official EVGA webshop, the cable bundles are initially available in a choice of three colours: black, red, blue and white.

Last time I checked, that was four colours?

Technically, IIRC, white and black aren't colours, but having performed a recount, that still doesn't help them.

Yes. Yes, it is. I counted 'em right further down the article! Fixed, ta.

On topic though, I used a red set of Corsair's cables on my AX750 and have been rather happy with the result - though the downside is that they bend a lot less easily than the standard cables. I think I paid around £40, as this is when they were a new thing, rather than the sub-£30 price they are now.

So, it's good EVGA are doing this, but the price is a bit high.

So you get 15 separate cables that work out at about £3.53 each and that's expensive?
