    Default Recommended 24 and 4/8 extensions

    More and more bottom mount cases appearing, I expect to need extender plugs for at least the ATX/EPS 4/8 cable, possibly a 24-24 sooner or later.
    Anyone have favorites or warnings?

    Most are all the same quality. Molex brand connectors and 18AWG wire.

    Personally, I like the NZXT Premium Cables, BitFenix Alchemy Cables, & Cubitek Flats

    Because they're flat, Cubitek's ones work the best. Not everyone likes the look and NZXT / Bitfenix give you more flare.

    I usually just head over to SVC and buy their cheapest ones with free shipping.

    Those Cubitek Flats are *exactly* what I'm looking for. Anyone know where to get them in the US ?

    No where yet; FrozenCPU should have them in stock soon. At least, that's the last I heard.

    I called frozenCPU and they told me to email purchasing@frozencpu to find out when they will start selling them. We'll see what they say.

    Looks like right now the only alternative would be to get an Ultra X3.

    I recommend getting them done by Martin from http://psychosleeve.com/. I got two 8 pin CPU extensions and 4 6+2 PCIE cables from him. Awesome work and quality, I definitely recommend him.
