Cooler Master Gladiator 600+PSU question

I have an old cabinet, but I'm thinking of buying Cooler Master Gladiator 600 (it's the only budget option available in my hometown). What I've been thinking is will Corsair VX450W psu's cords be long enough to re-route the wires (The case has system for bottom mounted psu)?

Think you will find that this is one of those that you're just going to have to try it and see. You could measure how long the 24 pin and 4 pin motherboard cables are, and then using the new cases dimensions measure from the sockets to roughly where the power supply will be mounted. If they aren't long enough you will need one of each of these (if you can find them locally),

Newegg.com - Athena Power 12" P4-12V (4Pin) connector Extension Cable. Model Cable-AD09 - Cables

Newegg.com - Athena Power 12" EPS (24Pin) connector Extension Cable Model Cable-AD08 - Cables

so that they will reach.

Edit: Just found this,

300W to 450W: 20 Power Supplies on the Test Bench - AnandTech :: Your Source for Hardware Analysis and News

which shows that the cables on your PSU are ~24" long, which should make them more than long enough. About the only thing I can see is you may want one of those 4 pin extensions, as due to the location of the block on the motherboard without one you may find you have to snake it under the video card as I don't think it will be long enough on its own to run it up the front (and out of the way).
