Hello everyone.

I'm making my first rig and I want to make it stand out more. I want to buy custom psu cables from CableMod. I think they're a bit pricey which is why I don't want to overspend on cables I don't need. Here is the parts list.

While you're at it, I would appreciate if you could rate my build. I know it's a bit much but I want something that can last me several years. Anyway thank you for helping. Have a great day!

I would firstly recommend (if you haven't build this yet) 1 1080ti instead of 2 1070ti's. Most games don't scale well with sli so performance (depending on the games you play) will be most of the times higher with 1 stronger gpu then 2 weaker ones. You would also need lesser cables btw. But thats something you will have to decide.

For cables if you go with that list you have to make the decision if you want extensions or full sized cables. Then i would go for 1 8pin cpu, 24pin and gpu cables in the colour you like since they are visible.

Also, I know it's not mentioned in the list, but I'll also be having six 120mm AMZtronics RGB fans

SLI is utter garbage. Many games do not support it, and if they do, a lot see diminished performance (10-30FPS less on some games). There’s also the increased power draw and the headaches associated with SLI. It’s not worth it. Just get a 1080 ti.
