What do you mean are they any good? That is an excellent power supply. What SPECIFICALLY is it that you want to know about it?
I know the psu is very good, but im thinking about the sleeved cables that comes with it:)
Just the overall quality of the cable, flexibility og durability

The gauge and quality are fine, but there are inline capacitors for additional ripple suppression so if you plan to do anything aesthetically with the cables you will want to simply buy a whole new set because you really can't individually sleeve those cables that have caps inline. Keep in mind that aftermarket sleeved cables, even the best of them, do NOT come with the inline caps so you will suffer some MINOR increase in additional ripple with a set of aftermarket cables.

If you want a really great power supply and you plan to custom sleeve the cables, and therefore WANT cables that are not going to have inline caps, I'd look to the Seasonic Prime Ultra Titanium units. Most everything else these days, well not everything, but a LOT of them, have inline caps.

If you have no plans for sleeving, then the RMx is good quality in all regards including cables.

Yes, they are Corsair's own cables. If you don't plan to custom sleeve, there is no reason to be concerned about the cables. They are as good or better quality as any other power supply at that price range, and better than many that are more expensive.

I dont know, if im being stupid right now, but is there any reason to sleeve already sleeved cables? :unsure:

Those still have inline caps, as mentioned here:

In order to deliver optimal ripple performance, Corsair equips its white RMx units with individually sleeved cables that have in-line capacitors. The aesthetic result of those caps might not be pleasing to perfectionists, but because of them, the RM850x's ripple suppression reaches jaw-dropping levels.
But given the fact that they ARE already individually sleeved, I agree there is little reason to want to do any custom sleeving yourself or replace them with aftermarket versions. Those are even better cables than with the regular version of that unit so you should have no worries at all. Not even sure why you'd think you would to be honest. There is no use case where I can imagine you'd have a problem related to those cables.
