Its good to see that Antec chose to sleve the cables on the Neo HE series. This was a feature that was greatly missed on the previous Neopower series, causing case modders to spend many hours pulling the cables apart and sleeving them to give them a cleaner look.
I did notice that Antec chose not to use cable ties underneath the shrink wrap. This is normally done to prevent the sleeving slipping out from underneath the shrink wrap. To see if this was going to be a problem, i took a pair of pliers to the sleeving and attempted to pull it out. The sleeving would not budge regardless of how much i pulled. Good job Antec..
For the most part, the number of connectors included is pretty standard. I was slightly dissapointed at there only being 6 molex connectors, which would actually be reduced to 5 if you was to use the floppy disk extension cable - especially when you take into consideration that the average PC will use 2 molex's for optical drives, possibly 2 molex's for non-sata drives and then several more connectors for fans and other devices. You also need to take into consideration that the arrangement of molex's on the cables may not suit your system layout, and thus some molex's may go unused.
