I was always surprised that some PSU manufacturers plop heat-shrink right where you want to bend the cable.

@Quartz Thanks for posting the link for these. I've just received 2 pairs of these and will install 2 of the 4 in my system tomorrow.
Should make cable management whole lot neater in there.

I struggle to understand why they'd do that unless they WANT you to have to buy two packs?!
Bit of a late reply :cry:
But this just came up in a thread
And I had to find this post to link to :)
If you have a card with only 1 power connector
Then that set of two covers you
Regardless of whether your connector has the latch
At the top or at the bottom
By the time of this reply cards with only one connector
Will probably be less common though
So they might now sell them in packs of 4 or 6
With 2 or 3 of each
And yes you can now get 90 degree ones too
