So I built my PC! But something is sort of wrong

I assembled my PC, and everything seems fine.
I went into BIOS, and it read up all the right specs.

But while plugging in all the front input plugs onto the motherboard,
something was amiss. The cable that was for the Front Audio Input couldn't reach!
It is attached to the HD Audio plug from the motherboard, so I plugged in the HD audio cable in,
but I had to leave the front audio plug disconnected. It only needs to be like an 1/8 of inch longer.

Any ideas?

I don't want to buy anything else at the moment. I don't really use front audio ports, so I guess I will just leave it as is for now.

One thing you could try to do is some creative cable routing. Maybe you can swap the change the way it goes around the upper expansion bay cages and gain some room ?

I am pretty sure there is no other way. I tried running it directly across, no cable routing or anything to hide it.
I tried running straight from the front to straight to the back, AFAIK.
