Doesn''t work
Cathodes do not work when connected to the inverter through this extension. There is a tiny bit of glow right at the base of the cathode near the cable, but other than that they look like they are not powered on at all. I tried 4 of these cables on both ports of 2 different inverters, and both of my cathodes had the same result (they work great plugged directly into the inverter). I''m only giving this 1 star to give this issue visibility--this is really a 0 star review, but that would just make it look like it hasn''t been reviewed yet.

Great Rad
I added this to an XSPC Raystorm AX360 kit with an additional to cool my motherboard, CPU, and GPU. It is easy to install and looks/feels very well-constructed. I overclocked my i7-4770K to 4.6 GHz, and pushed the base & memory clocks on my GTX 780 ti ~150MHz over factory settings. The hottest my components have gotten UNDER LOAD so far is 30C!! After my experience with this build, XSPC has my business for life.

Solid Component
I used this in conjunction with an XSPC Raystorm AX360 kit and an additional AX240 dual radiator. The block looks very well put-together and has a solid, quality heft to it. It comes with detailed instructions and installation hardware. I was pretty nervous about messing with my MoBo, but mounting this block ended up being the easiest part of my whole build. So far this has kept my MoBo below 30C under load.

Awesome Block
This block looks and feels very well put together. I was a bit skeptical about installing the included LEDs, as I thought the cables would add unwanted clutter. Some simple routing and a touch of electrical tape rendered the cables practically invisible, however, and the effect that the LEDs add is just awesome. Easily the coolest-looking block I have ever seen. I installed XSPC Raystorm AX360 kit with an additional AX240 dual radiator, and am cooling my CPU, MoBo, and a GTX 780 ti. I overvolted the card and pushed the base and memory clocks ~150 MHz each, and so far the hottest the card has gotten UNDER LOAD has been 30C! Installation was a bit nerve-wracking, but the included instructions were very detailed and ultimately it was not very difficult. A word of advice: there was a superfluous metal strip (some sort of spacer?) on my card''s mounting bracket that pushes against the block once it is attached. I had to gently push this out of the way with a screwdriver (it moved easily)to avoid bending the card.

Good tubing
Very flexible, yet doesn''t collapse easily in tight bends. There were a few sections of my loop where I made some mistakes and really abused this tubing by bending, twisting, & detaching/reattaching. It looked and felt good-as-new no matter what I did to it. I was skeptical about the UV effect, but it ended up being exactly what I had hoped. I installed 2 12" cold cathode UV lights on the top and bottom of my case, and it lights this tubing up exactly like the picture. 2 meters was more than enough to complete my whole loop, which ran: Reservoir->CPU->MoBo->Radiator1->GPU->Radiator2->Reservoir.

Works great, short cables
I installed 2 of these in my HAF X, one on the top of the window/door and one on the side below the exhaust fan. They light up all of my UV-reactive components very brightly while giving off almost no light in the visible spectrum. While the lights themselves work exceptionally well, the cables are a pain. They are really short so the cathode(s) have to be installed close to the ugly blue inverter, which in turn cannot be far from the rocker switch and a power plug. I highly recommend that you pick up a 4-pin molex extension cable, it opens your options up quite a bit. Avoid the cold cathode extension cables that FrozenCPU sells. All 4 that I purchased were defective, and it seems they have a design problem.

Good fan
The fan is quiet, pushes a lot of air, and installs easily. The LEDs give a bright but not overly-harsh glow.

Works great
Does exactly what you hope it does. looks good and connects cleanly. I stock up on all kinds of extensions when I''m doing a build, really opens up your options for clean cable management.

Highly recommend
If your case has a window, a 24-pin MoBo cable extension is a must. You''d be surprised how big an effect it has on the overall appearance of your components. The cable that comes out of the PSU is really sloppy and clunky, adding the extension really cleans it up and makes everything look more planned. I went with white because I thought it would subtly pick up the blue glow of my various LEDs, and it worked out great.
