    Default Braided Cables

    Hey there, currently looking to buy a new full set of braided cables ( white )

    emailed modpc for a quote like 3 days ago, no reply, tried phoning them, no reply, so starting to give up on them

    ive got one of the bitfenix alchemy cables from my current build, but as big ian says, the mod pc ones are better quality, anyone know any others to look for?

    Have a go at braiding your own. It takes a while but is easy enough to do (if i can do it, anyone can) and the result is more satisfying.
