Today we're going to have a closer look at the Alchemy 2.0 cables, a new set of sleeved cables, which are compatible with a great amount of power supplies. Furthermore the Alchemy 2.0 cables are available in a few differents colors.



Alchemy is BitFenix's premium modding brand. With Alchemy 2.0 BitFenix introduces a new version of their sleeved cables, which are compatible with a vast variety of modular power supplies.

Conclusion


With ​​their Alchemy 2.0 BitFenix offers a new series of cable sleeves which are compatible with power supplies from most manufacturers. The quality is excellent and the cables are made of a high-density cloth structure, ensuring good flexibility and durability. Apart from that the kits are available in various colors. There are monochrome cables sets as well as others with different colors. We really like the fact, that BitFenix even ships spare cables and apart from that, having cables which are ready-for-use is much more comfortable than extensions. Especially because it allows for cleaner cable management. The cable ktis from BitFenix include no less than 18 different cables, which is quite a bit more than what you get from other vendors. In addition there are even five cable combs for your 24-pin cables that can be modded for obtain also 8-pin and 6-pin. Since the bundle is extensive, we would have expected to find a complete set of cable combs even for the CPU and graphics cards, but that is not the case.

Although this is a premium product, the price is still interesting; our set of BitFenix ​​Alchemy 2.0 cables is available on Geizhals at a price of 105 Euro.

We give the Alchemy 2.0 good 4 out of 5 stars.
