Seeing in the other thread that you have a good quality psu do i see no big problem since the kit you link has a good gauge wires (16AWG) .

That said would i rather use a kit from Corsair where the extra resistance the extra connectors which the Antec kit introduces might create is eliminated like this one,

chose a white kit since that is what you linked.
There is a kit with more options, but that one is more expensive and even includes sata cables and such,

guess this is abit much for you, the other kit has all that you probably need with a 24pin+8pin+2x8pin pcie connector

What do you guys think about extension cables? Are they safe to use? Particularly this set:
Amazon.com: Antec PSU Cables, Sleeved Cable Extension Kit /24pin ATX /4+4pin EPS /8-pin PCI-E /6pin PCI-E PSU Extension Cable Kit 30cm Length with Combs, White Connector,White : Electronics

Or would anyone recommend a better manufacturer or set that isn't stupidly high priced?
Most people here frown on using them.
I use them in my PC and had no problems at all.
As long as their quality cables like those.
