- 16-gauge wire with German made MDPC-X Sleeving
- Brighter and more intense colors than other extensions
- Custom made to your specific color combination
Assembled in the USA
From start to finish, all assembly work of M1 Custom PC Cable Extensions is done right here in the USA by highly skilled craftsman. This means our custom extensions are manufactured to very high standards well above what is typically found with mass-produced “crimp over sleeve” style cables. With our sleeving methods, you also will not receive extensions with “loose” or “un-stretched” sleeve. Un-stretched sleeve on a wire is a sign of poor build quality, is unattractive and they will not form well due to the loss of rigidity.
Top level craftsmanship with the sleeve melted over the terminal, not crimped
At MOD-ONE we believe that great craftsman is more important than mass-production. This why we melt the sleeve over the terminals as opposed to crimping the sleeve to the wire. It is our belief that this method of crimping over the sleeve will never be as superior as melting the sleeve ends over the terminal. Crimping sleeve is done because it’s a faster method of manufacturing, not because it’s a better practice for quality, and here is why we think this;
- Crimping over sleeve generally requires a smaller diameter sleeve (~3mm). Many cables combs will fit loosely with this small sleeve (once fully stretched), but it also creates a “spaghetti like” appearance of your wires. We use 6mm MDPC-X Sleeve, which when stretched over the wire properly, narrows and creates a beautiful fullness to the wires. This adds to a superior looking cable overall.
- Crimping down on PET sleeve over wire tends to create a bulge in the sleeve directly behind the crimp. This can result in sleeve that is loosely formed around the wire in a very visible section of your cable.
- Reduced strength at stress relief wings due to no insulation to bite into. The sleeve fits inside of ATX terminal wings by removing more insulation from the wire. So now the terminal wings are no longer biting into firm insulation, but soft woven sleeve. Our terminals bite directly into the insulation as are intended to be.
There is no perfect “arch” for every application
Within the last several years the “arched” extension cable has become the standard for sleevers around the world. What makes it useful is not just for nice pictures, but it aids in creating a nice uniform flow of wires. Without it, the wires on the underside of the cable can bulge up past the top wires when the cable is routed around bends.
We took this concept further by allowing our customers to choose the type of arch they require. For example, let’s examine the 24-pin cable; The most common arched 24-pin cable we see is the 180-degree arch. This is more functional than a flat cable in most any build, but it is not the best shape for most 24-pin cables. If we look a typical motherboard, the 24-pin connection sticks out perpendicular to the PCB. Based on a 180-degree arch, the male connector at the far end of the cable would run right into the door/panel on the cable side of your case. This is not ideal. What is ideal is for the connector to continue wrapping around so that is sits flat against the backside of the case. In other words, the cable needs to curve around 270-degrees (3/4 of a full rotation) for optimal cable management. In most situations, the only time a 180-degree cable works best on a 24-pin cable is on motherboards that have the connection pointed to the side (common on certain EVGA motherboards). Aside from the 270-degree and 180-degree cable, we also offer straight cables.
Unparalleled quality in materials
We use the legendary MDPC-X PC Cable Sleeve over our custom made M1 16-gauge wire. MDPC-X Sleeve is the original PC sleeve which started the trend of cable sleeving back in 2007. It is manufactured in Germany by Nils Papke in his family ran shop. MDPC-X Sleeve is not a rebranded product like most other sleeves on the market. They offer the best quality and widest range of colors to choose from in a PET sleeve. It is also much more durable compared to paracord which is a fabric base material. Fabric based materials can fray and retain dust and dirt in the fibers. MDPC-X being a PET sleeve will never fray, and is much less likely to retain dust in the sleeve. Our M1 16-gauge wire was custom made to be used specifically for PC cable sleeving. It is very easy to train, and allows for ultimate form of your cables when used with MDPC-X. We also use long wing terminals which are extremely reliable, and strong.
Intense colors with ability to customize
MDPC-X Sleeve is extremely vibrant, beautiful and is considered by many to have the best colors. We at MOD-ONE take it up another level by offering white wire as a base to sleeve over. Black wire darkens certain PET sleeve colors no different than a black base coat would on an interior wall or on a car. This means that the bright MDCP-X colors will “POP” with even more intense color than ever before. Rest assure though that when blacks, grays and other darker colors are used with white there is absolutely no color change. Lastly we give you complete control over the color scheme on your cables. So feel free to be your own cable designer, and color match these cables to your system exactly the way you want! Order a set today!

Quality Cables and Quality Customer Support
Posted by Andrew T. on Apr 3rd 2017
These custom cables are quality made. I had ordered a previous set of custom cables from Newegg, and they were nowhere close in anyway to this product. Although a small business, Mod-One provided me with excellent customer service, one I'd even say rivals that of Amazons'.

This is by far the highest quality cable I have ever used. The quality is such that it is noticeable when peering through the window of your PC from afar. The materials scream luxury and quality.
The Only Cable Extensions You Need
Posted by Chris R, on Mar 7th 2017
The quality on these is about as good as it gets! I love the color options on the sleeving, that they use MDPC-X sleeving instead of paracord, that you can add combs into the build, that you can specify the orientation of the plugs, and that you can specify the degree of the bend! The only thing preventing me from giving this 5 stars is that you can't specify the length. In my most recent build the default length caused the connection to end up in a strange place on the back side of the motherboard. But my case was probably rare and really I wouldn't buy from anyone else simply because of that. The quality here just can't be matched.
Appearance is everything.
