    Default Question about OC

    I have got a little problem with my mainboard the GA X58A-OC.
    Unfortunately the EPS(2x8PIN) cables which are supposed to power my CPU are too short in order to be hidden behind the case.

    I have been thinking, about an extender for the cables, but I am worrying that OC performance might suffer because of the added resistance/impendance but also because most extenders are very low quality.

    Will my OC performance be impeded by the added extender, or will I be just fine?

    nzxt makes nice sleeved ones.. I've been using those for a few years.. I actually have one on both my 700d and 800d set-up since the Power supply cables can't reach if I run them behind the MB tray... Never had any issues..

    T
    hey make colored ones also if you want to go with those.. I think they made red and white..

    thanks good link
    I actually need white sleeving in my whole case.

    Will look into it, and since the extenders won´t be harmful I will also use them for my GPU connectors.

    My PSU cables are all sleeved already.
    Is there a way I can just get white sleeving material, so I can just coat them myself?
