I installed fans in my cabinet, but the thermal controller could not be placed near the fans so I bought this extension to complete the job. I used the basic wired extension as it was in a location that can't be seen.
I have used both the sleeved and the ribbon cables. Both are useful. The ribbon cable has IMHO a slightly nicer appearance because the overall cable width is smaller since there's no sleeve. But if you have to connect it to a non-polarized header where the polarity is important, the sleeved cable is easier to use because you can see the colors of the wires where they enter the connectors.
Bought an extension wire so I had enough slack to take the back off my cabinet without pulling my fan controller out of it. I went with the sleeved. Great price and looks nice. The ribbon looks like too. Not a fan of the bare type for home theater.
I got help from one of the guys to make sure I had what I needed in my cart. He gave me great advice and I know that I have exactly what I need. Great product and great service!
