Shorter Cables for TU-100B/A

Hi guys! My friend and I are about to build in this case in a week or two, so I'm trying to figure out recommended cable lengths.

From what I read on PCPP is that the cable lengths on my chosen PSU are too long. Thankfully this PSU is also full-modular, so I can swap out cables.

Here is our build list that we set up. Budget was that it had to be under $1500 and as small and mobile as possible (sans wheels; may consider rocket pack).

This is an ultra-mobile, beefy LAN rig with emphasis on small and mobility. It's also cute :3

So this case is really small and these cables for the aforementioned PSU are a bit on the long side :S.

I may either A.) deal with it (not my pc anyways). B.) find a custom cabler. or C.) tuna sandwich.

SO since C has already happened a couple of nights ago (yum), A just can't happen (because I mean come on, this build is looking good); I might have to go with a subversion of B: Coax (read: torture) my friend into just getting an unlocked i7, cryorig cpu cooler and fill any empty space that the nano couldn't cover up with cryorig fans, then get cables custom-made somewhere after i get the case in hand and have made my own measurements.

BUT! If someone has worked with the case or psu or both by chance and can tell me what cable length recommendations are for it, I would love you enough to be *plays music* MENTIONED on the completed build! Or maybe not if I forget. I do that. :S

EDIT: Also, I know that there is one spot for a 120mm Fan, but was curious if there was a bottom vent that I could put another fan into to help the video card breathe.

don't know where you read this... the silverstone SFX 600 comes with the short flat cables.. The PP05-E has some that are 50mm shorter

but honestly this are flat cables, its so easy to manage them with zip ties. The ones that come with the pus are perfectly fine.

Yeah i forget, it consisted of a lot of google-fu though so I don't wanna source anything that could be a mistake.

Thank for referring to the cable set. Pretty cheap. I guess I'll look at the cables provided first and see if we really need to dump into the budget for shorter cables.

honestly for a 50mm difference, I don't think you should spend that money. Those are flat cables, its so easy to manage them with zip ties. I bought the PP05E because my SFX 450 watt version came with the regular thick longer cables.

ya i had picked the larger silverstone strider for the overhead, but i'll keep the fan size in perspective. Thanks for the reply!
