    Quick question. Are temp cables "normal" ie can i use a wiring block to extend them with any old wire? I ask as i want to make the temp sensors of the Scythe Kaze Master Ace longer, a cable management issue.

    They are just thermistors - won't be a problem, might knock recorded temps out a fraction.

    the extra resistance in the extender cable will make a difference to the temp read out, doubt if it would be much though.

    In my experince the resistence added in next to nothing, so the temp should still be +- 1 degree
