Notice the single cable tie used to tie down all the power supply cables at the back. I had the 8-pin ATX motherboard power cable's length extended to 28 inches to cover tall full tower cases close to this SST-KL05-W chassis I used for this review. The PCIe power cables I used are also shorter at 12 inches so it can hang directly below the power supply. There's also a set of PCIe cables with the default 24 inches of length if you prefer routing it back the chassis and out to the front again near the graphic card's socket.

The cables are very easy to manage around the chassis. The cables' flexibility is just perfect for me, not to stiff nor too soft. Maxcord sleeving stays put and holds on to the cable firmly no matter how you bend them unlike nylon based sleeves that moves around the cable as you flex and bend. Compared to extension cables from NZXT and Bitfenix, working with the Single Braid Maxcord cables is a lot easier and it looks better too. Maxcord doesn't have this shiny, plastic look on it.

Here's a view from the outside of the chassis through a clear acrylic window. Let's move on to the next page for the conclusion.
