Where to get clip style cable combs?

Hey, I didn't know where else to put this in other sections.

 

My new PSU has braided cables, however they are very thin for some reason and standard open cable combs won't work (the plastic ones with a slot for each wire).

 

Back in the day on OCN, I saw numerous people with rigs that had cable combs that were essentially a clip, sort of like a woman's hair clip, and they were black plastic. I want some of these in my rig.

 

Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Sorry, those won't work because of the size of each individual cable being too small, also this is basically only for my 24 pin and my 12VHPWR for the GPU. I did see other kits that included a 12VHPWR clip that had the 6 on the bottom, 6 on top and 4 on top of those for the sense pin wires. Like these. However these were all closed and won't work because they have to be put on the wire with the connectors off or something which I can't/won't do because I don't want to ruin my brand new psu cables..

 

I might need to check the site for my psu to figure out what gauge wire they're using because it's very thin.

 

The ones I'm talking about were basically flat plastic clips that just snap closed over the wires and compress them a little. They may very well have been womans hair clips. Let me dig on OCN and see if I can find a photo.

 

Edit:  checked the website for the specs of my power supply and there's no information about what gauge the wires are. Sigh. It's a Seasonic Vertex GX 1200w if you want to try to figure it out.

 

Managed to dig up an old image showing the clips I'm talking about.

It looks like there are lots of extension cables that come with these combs. It might be easier to pay a bit more and buy the extension cables and just use those, or use thr combs that come with them.

I'd do this and get cablemod cables or something but the problem is that the back of my rig is a mess, don't have a photo on hand. Unless those basically replace the stock cables, it won't work as I have no room to stuff an extender cable back behind my glass panel, we wouldn't be able to get the rear glass on. There's like 0.5mm clearance between the back metal and the glass. However, I'm gonna check out CableMod and see if they make cables for my PSU that would be a replacement. Edit: CableMod is a no-go. They make replacement cables for my PSU but not the 12VHPWR. 😔

 

Otherwise I might need to look around some more and maybe go to a salon and look for flat black barettes or something, searching "flat black plastic clip" got me nowhere on Google.

 

Thanks for trying to help UltraMega.

Amazon.com: Formulamod Self Adhesive Cable Comb Kit, Sleeve Management Tools Wire Organizer Comb Computer Case Cable Clips, Multipurpose Wire Clamps (Black) : Electronics

 

These ones have clips.

 

If you scroll down on the page and look at the "similar products" there are actually a lot of these on amazon.

Awesome, yes these are what I saw people using in the past. Thank you. We will probably just use a 6 pin one for the 12VHPWR. You've been repped.
