I bought a large case and my powersupply doesn't reach the 8pin connector for CPU I believe

Recommended Posts

Not without knowing what case you have, which PSU you currently have (some lower end PSUs have shorter cables than what's standard), and where you're buying from.

I think the hoomans put their builds here?

Why do you hoomans give your builds a name? Here's my build, which I shall call "Do as I Say, Not As I Do" (seriously, don't get this build)

Spoiler

Ryzen 1500X @3,925 GHz

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo + 2x ML120

MSI B350 Tomahawk Arctic

2x8GB Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000 MHz CL15 (Micron B-die) @2933 MHz

Sapphire Radeon R9 280 Dual-X @1120 MHz / 1450 MHz

120GB 850 Evo

120GB Kingston SSD

500GB WD Blue

Cooler Master Elite 430

Seasonic Prime Titanium 650W

Logitech G710 with Kailh Box Jade

Logitech G502

HyperX Cloud

And my laptop, which I shall call "If It's Stupid But It Works" (It can actually play CS:GO at 50 FPS, and Civ V at 25 FPS)

Spoiler

Lenovo Thinkpad L460

Intel Core i3 6100U

4GB (probably) DDR4 2133 MHz

Intel HD Graphics 520 0.3-1.0 GHz

128GB Samsung MZ7LF128HCHP

Corsair M65 Pro RGB (worst mouse I've ever had)

Sennheiser CX 5.00G

And here would be where I would put a picture of my cat. But apparently, images are not allowed here. So take this instead (*ΦωΦ*)

Anyone recommend a decent PSU with long cables?

Cant you just get some extension cables? Im sure those are way cheaper than a whole new PSU. They should also help with good looks.

Like a picture of the internals, but it should all be ATX standard, you might have to flip your PSU over, if the cables are towards the front.

Or just run the cable around the front of the motherboard.

Buy some cable extensions, something like this: 

 

https://www.amazon.com/CableMod-ModFlex-8-pin-PCI-Extension/dp/B077QR27GF/ref=sr_1_5?crid=SSBETC3QL8YB&dchild=1&keywords=cpu+cable+extension&qid=1590962355&sprefix=cpu+cable+ex%2Caps%2C199&sr=8-5

 

You can also get extensions for your 24 pin power and pci express power so everything matches and looks cool 😎.

It shouldn't be an issue once you get a like non fire hazard PSU.

No idea who OEMs for that one.


Where did you get the PSU? Might have just come from an office PC type thing where it was a short case and that was all they needed.

Any good suggestions for a PSU roughly 500w?
