Windows 7: Casing Cable Management

Casing Cable Management

Hello everyone and I have some question with regards to the new case I am changing...

So, I am upgrading my case to Corsair Carbide 400R and I was wondering about the cable management for my Seasonic S12II PSU. I mean, are the cable in this PSU long enough to route it properly? Is there any tips and tricks for proper cable management?

I understand that this case is a 'budget' case but is there any other better alternative? I like this case for its minimal form factor.

Sorry for the question because this is my first time changing into a proper cable management case like this and I apologize if this is in the wrong thread as well.

First it's a very good case with hidden cable management option and secondly as i researched on google about your PSU which is a Modular PSU if i'm not mistaking so i guess the cables usually that come along with Modular's are long enough so you could hook them up in a case like Carbide 400R

I just built a system using a Carbide 500R case, which I think is the same as the 400R except White color.

I had to orient my power supply so the 24 pin and 8 pin cables were toward the motherboard so they would reach, routing them on the back side of the motherboard.

I have a Gigabyte GAZ77X UD5H motherboard. The 8 pin connector was long enough for this motherboard. I recently built another system using an ASRock Z77 Professional motherboard, in a different case, and I don't think the 8 pin connector would reach this board, in the Carbide case, with using an extender cable.

Thank you, sirs. But you are mistaken, sorry for the wrong information presented, my PSU is not modular PSU so I believe the cable is kind of restricted in certain way.

So will I be fail-safe if I just get the extender cabel for my 8-pin cable? Or do I need other extender cables as well? Sorry and thank you.

Extender cables are relatively inexpensive. I would get the 8 pin and 24 pin extender cables in case you need them.

Thank you everyone, I have bought the case and is loving it.

For those who is using Seasonic S12II (620W) non-modular PSU, the cable can fit in just nice without any additional extender.
