Hi All,

Looking to get a set of sleeved cable extensions (2x8pin bridged GPU cables) made (not replacing the PSU original cables). And I have the option for 2 brands. Want to know if someone has experience with both and can comment or just share your thoughts in terms of build wuality, flexibility, reliability, any voltage drops noticed, etc.

1) Sensei Mods
2) Tweaked PC

Sensei mods is about Rs. 500-600 cheaper but i have heard from someone they are not very good.

I saw a few known members tagged in the SM posts of these companies so I am tagging you here seeking your feedback. Some of you are experts so assuming you may have some experience and or I have see in your signature or rig using custom cables. Apologies for the random tag, hoping you can weigh in.

for Sensi mod, the only issue i had was once they send me cable and it was not properly pinned. so I contacted them and they collected it from my place and send me replacement for the same. reset no issue at all in last 2 years or so. using it even now in my current pc :p

I've always had a very unpopular and unfavorable view about individually sleeved power supply cables. I understand people are attracted to the aesthetics of them, trickled down from the late 1990's/early 2000's car culture movies but even today I struggle to find any appeal in them.

Computers are incredibly complex with intricately designed interoperating circuit boards that run at high clock frequencies... and we make it 'custom' by putting a plastic sleeve over the most basic, least innovative part of it — a copper wire that provides power? It just doesn't make sense to me.

In car culture, something like a custom air filter has tangible benefits — same with custom tires, suspension and not to mention sleeved cables actually have a purpose in that environment, providing protection. But in computers, it does nothing functional.

So in my builds, I've always routed wires cleanly and never sleeved individual wires.

There's one kind of custom cable that I do find attractive though, it's those super slim unsleeved wires that people use in Mini-ITX builds:

Another kind of custom 'cabling' that I would really like to try some day is solid core wire:

Sir, you custom wire your own PC, If I had the confidence, skill and tools to do that I might agree with, your builds with simple zip ties at the end are simplistic and amazing. This (attached) is how ugly my GPU power setup looks rn. I thought I'd live with it, but for someone into PC modding for well over a decade, it's far too ugly to deal with. I don't know why higher end PSUs come with sleeved (single sleeve over all wires with that big and ugly heat shrink) the basic models have flat black PSU cables without any sleeving and they look way better.

Any luck? I'm also looking. I haven't received any response from tweaked pc on Facebook. There's a guy selling a used white and gray Sensei mods set for 2500. Thinking if I should go for it.

I got a quick reply from TPC via WhatsApp but they were much more expensive than SM, so I went with SM, got delivery too. Happy with my purchase.

Can you share your ID in pm I will check it or send us a message again on the Facebook page. I might have missed it. Sorry about that.
 
Hi @Slayer88

I could make you the 8-pin PCI-e cables if you want. Like @rsaeon, I'm not a fan of sleeved cables, but I have some grey sleeving left over and I'd be happy to use it. The Techflex sleeving I have isn't purpose built for sleeving PC wires, so the weave isn't as tight. See pictures below. The clear PTFE, silver-plated copper wire is very high quality and extremely easy to train (I also have the same wire in black). Note I can't make you extensions; male-to-male only.

Hey there, thanks for the offer. I bought a SM bridged cable. Cheers!
