Good morning, my first post........
My future build is still in my head, however the jumble of wires will be missing from my dream-chine. I plan on using lengths, type, color and cover of MY choice inserted to the connector of my choice. Problem: Wire size (18ga, 22ga, etc) and quality is a subject of which I am ignorant. I hope my first post will generate suggestions that will send me off in an educated direction.

So let me get this straight.. you're not going to be using store bought pre-assembled wires for everything? I.E. your own custom created SATA etc?

Also, welcome to the boards!

I suggest buying a fully modular PSU, using their cables, and simply shortening them as needed while custom sleeving them.
