    Totally rip off. I agree if you care about aesthetics, you could pay more. But not $90 ...

    don't see an issue with price. The time it takes to sleeve your own PSU, let alone get all the stuff to do it correctly is well worth spending the money on these instead imo.

    Wow for 90$ you can get a new PSU. To pay so much for something that only helps esthetics would be insane, but then again there no product that cant be sold and bought by an idiot.

    Hmmm, I was going to say what a ripoff price that was...but then realized it was for a complete set of cables. Considering buying them 1 at a time is, lets just say $10 each (which might even be a touch low, for sure not high), then all those cables for the price is OK. Only OK because you may end up spending more for the whole set than if had had a 1 off option, maybe you only want the mobo power cables and cables for vid cards. So depending on setup, that could be $30-60 at least.

    I probably spent that much on the extension cables of that type for my mobo and video cards, the ultimately I spent a bit less than $89 anyway. Wasn't concerned about those type of cables to storage devices.

    If these cables are of good quality then it is a deal. Corsairs are even more expensive. Not only that.... not everyone wants a black and red color scheme. Which is all EVGA used to offer. Just recently when I upgraded my PSU I was looking at an EVGA Power supply. What stopped me from buying was EVGA's lack of finished looking cables.
    I think its a great idea EVGA... keep it up!

    If you want to colour match cables with your components and case, the price is ok.

    In something like a H440 or another case with a PSU shroud, you can get by with using much cheaper extensions. But if you use extensions and have a window that shows the PSU cables, then the mismatch is jarring.

    For a full set (assuming quality is at least ok) 90$ is about what you'd expect.

    Some of the comments are silly. If you have a solid side panel or otherwise don't care about aesthetics, no one is forcing you to buy these. No need to ridicule people who will.

    some say that 90$ for full set of cables is not so pricy... I will say that I have paid for different systems in my life (some for gaming, some for wor work) and I have spent on my cables exactly 0,00 $- how the hell I get so lucky... but if these cables will make my Crysis run smoother.... well still gona pay 0,00 $ for them :D. when ever someone trys to sell me something that is for free - I do not know about you, but I will pass. In cease if I will want to impress "the girls" with my new fancy system - I will pay for damn floppy drive... no other man on earth will have that in his system (and still will not pay for that floppy drive power cable - cuz it will come for free :p)

    Price is ok, you have to realize, that it is price for whole bunch of cables. If you count up prices of other brands (BitFenix, NZXT, SilverStone, Corsair etc.) of single sleeved cables, you get same price level of set.

    Like MXPhenom said, the cost of braided sleeve or paracord, heatshrink, new cables, connectors, plus the many many hours it takes. Then on top of that the chance of doing it wrong or messy. The price is about right especially as a full PSU sleeve is a huge effort!

    Although they could of offered a better warranty other than a year for the price!

    Garbage maybe make CORSAIR and their cables similar to extensions.
    I saw cables on NEX and they are incredible.
    I rather choose this cables over MDPC-X. Because MDPC-X is nice to see them, to clean dust with brush, install and don't touch any more, put in studio under proper light and make photos only for gallery. But for 24/7 when you change hardware often, remove cables, plug-unplug any cables fast become pain and need to be fixed very often. Only if someone make own 18AWG cables and connect pin over sleeve...and MDPC-X look thick sometimes. On other ways it's only matter of time when you need to fix heatsrink or cables. And special pain when someone sleeve own PSU and need to invest over 100$ in sleeve.
    What is problem 1300W Gold one of best quality PSU on the world + sleeve KIT for 300$ and 10 year warranty. And normal cables for reserve.
    What Enermax sell for 300$, or CORSAIR, and they are much better???
    How much??? They are not better at all. We talk about very similar power supplies with 0.5% difference.
    How much people are capable to made Molex and SATA connectors so nice as these.
    For most users these cables are better than anything. Only nice sleeve kit I know is on modDIY site,
    but price is 80x3.

    For several year I didn't saw person capable to make Molex and SATA to look, like this.

    Always you see 20 black srinks for 2 SATA connectors or every wire on own side.
    This cables are excellent, strong, natural, you use them as normal cables,

    These red cables are excellent for Radeon owners.
    EVGA give warranty 1 year on cables. :)
    I can't give warranty 1h if I sleeve cables.
