EVGA Develops Sleeved PCI-E Cable Adapters for Select Graphics Cards

EVGA developed a new accessory that could give the graphics card area a mean muscular look, without putting you through the grueling task of sleeving your PSU's cables. The Sleeved PCI-E Cable Adapter accessory by EVGA lets you extend the PCI-E cables of your PSU just enough that they could appear sleeved, when looked through the side-panel window. The contact between the adapter and your PSU's actual PCI-E power connectors can be tucked away behind the motherboard. Pictured below is an adapter that plugs in two 6-pin PCI-E connectors, and plugs out an 8-pin connector. For now, EVGA could bundle the accessory with select models of its graphics cards, it's likely that the part could make it to the accessories section of the EVGA online store, too.

That is so innovative!
If they keep doing that they will catch up with Apple.

They should include that in their Classified and FTW series of graphics cards.

Practise before NEX

This is clearly practise for sleeving cables before launching the NEX PSU SKU. They did say that they were doing things differently with NEX and they haven't shown the cables yet, indicating that there should be something special to it.

I'm not sure whether I love the idea of sleeving individual cables instead of the whole group together, or hate it. The thing that always irk'd me about PC cables is they dont run parallel to each other. One or 2 cables always criss-cross. Full cable sleeving hides that.

It does look nice tho.

I wouldnt call that sleeved anyway. Its just a braided cable.

I don't see how this will work on the new 600 series sense the power connectors aren't on the end these don't look long enough to reach the new design with out showing your normal psu cables.

Sleeving every cable individually instead of sleeving them in bunches? Sense, this makes none.

The same community that thought turning the inside of a computer into the Disney Laser & Light show was cool not too far back.

Yep, and I have to admit, I fell in that category when I was still in college. I even went so far as to have a custom acrylic clear case made. The case now sits in my basement empty(anyone want it?!). Now none of my machines even have a window in them, I even took the window side panel out of my main machine and replaced it with a standard side panel. I just grew out of it I guess, and prefer a nice classy case.

Now at the same time I have to say a nice cable management job like MeanBruce posted is still to my liking, that does look classy, and I'd probably have a window in the case to show that off.

Maybe because by time they started to tweet about it they finished making them. Like hell even if you wanted them all split up these don't even look good lmao.

The wire actually reminds me of some old shit back in the day which was many many moons ago and still looks ugly.

Would a nVidia fan actually plug red cables in to their lovely green team cards ?.
