Help - PSU 8-pin connector too short

Hello all,

I am putting togethe my rig and ran into a bit of a problem. Using a COOLER MASTER RC-690-KKN1-GP case (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119137) which has a bottom mount PSU. The 8-Pin connector is too short to reach the MOBO connection.

PSU (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817341016&Tpk=ocz%20500w)
MOBO (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157163&cm_re=asrock_x58_extreme-_-13-157-163-_-Product)

Am I missing something here or do I just need to get a different PSU (with a longer 8-pin connector)? Any suggestions??

Thanks for your help!

Tom

    Just buy an extension cable and that should solve your problem easy enough. Good luck.
