Some people buy extensions when they don't even need them just so they can have braided cables showing in their build.

basically my bronze psu got burned so i ordered an SFX psu while i have an ATX case without knowing, the question is do i buy extension cables or do i go through the hell of returning the item and get another one ? 

 

the SFX psu i bought has an ATX frame thats why i was thinking of just buying extension cables from cablemod

Item returns generally aren't that bad. Most places will provide the shipping label, all you need to do is provide a box. Surely you can find a box right?

i found it for 80$ which was way cheaper than the other 650 PSUs i found

Yes, by SFX standards thats the expected price. You could get an RMx 550 for the money though and that's a much better unit

unfortunately i couldnt find any corsair PSU i was a little limited with the options, so you think its just better if i return it than getting extension cable?

Why would you need extensions? Are the cables that short that you can't even reach the board?

 

Also - plenty of other good units - SeaSonic Prime, DeepCool Gold Silent, BitFenix Formula, Be Queit Straight Power 11 and etc

If you have a SFX to ATX bracket then buying extension cables is fine. If you intend for this system to be under a lot of stress I would advise only buying extensions as long as they have to be. Make it so a second PSU doesn't go up in smoke.

yeah ive looked at it and it really is that short i can tell it wont even reach near it, also its looks a bit nicer too but im just concerned if its gonna ruin the psu faster or anything like that

in my head it doesnt seem like that bad of an idea its just a psu with a longer cable to make it fit, i could just replace a unit but the fact that i have to wait like 1 more month is bugging me

You would want to verify whatever you order are of sufficient gauge for the application. Matching what comes with the PSU would be ideal.

Ideally I would agree but if OP doesn't want to and if he has a proper bracket then it won't look terrible and shouldn't impact the performance measurably with quality extensions.
