    new build

    Hi folks,

    I'd like advice on whats the best sata cables,and this might seem a daft question but what does reactive cable do and how does it work(do i need cathode lights)

    I am on a mission to build a new pc or rather migrate my existing hardware into a new case.I have took the plunge and ordered a thermaltake mozart tx.I know some hate it but ive heard its great for modding.I a 51 year old boy and i think im going through my second childhood lol.Id really like advice about fancy cables and lights/cooling etc.

    cheers

    Hi there
    Have moved this to the hardware section as you will get many more replies.

    Reactive cables glow when exposed to a UV light (which you buy separately, yes)
    There is no 'best' SATA cable. They transmit a digital signal, so as long as they work there will be no difference between them (excluding gimmics like glowing, ect )
