Received my new riser cable today, installed it and tested it. So far it's not causing any problems. *Fingers Crossed*
The cable I received -> None of the above actually. It's sort of the cheap one, with a different lock and no thermaltake branding what so ever... What I did notice was the black top layer is pasted on with adhesive, which came off straight away with the smallest amount of bending. (installed the cable in my core P3, and both ends have the black end parts loose reveiling the cable underneath, not sure if this will cause problems but I feel it's cosmetic at this point).
Will keep you updated if anything changes.
Special thanks to @ThermalMike for his quick replies, really sped up the process.
