I'm in the process of putting together my new build. I have a:

ASRock Z77 EXTREME4 ATX LGA1155 DDR3 2PCI-E16 2PCI-E1 2PCI SATA3 DVI HDMI USB3.0 Motherboard

As we were building it, we realized that because my case mounts the PSU at the bottom, the ATX12v1 (8 pin) cable is not long enough to go over my video card and around my cooler comfortably. It can fit but the way it presses against the cooler just doesn't sit well with me. :(  I'm trying to see if I can get an extension without resorting to buying another PSU.

I just want to know if this is what I'm looking for? I'm not that adept with these things as I had a friend with me put it together. But he's not sure about the extension either.

Thanks in advance.

That looks like the correct extension.

Personally, I would simply splice the necessary length of wiring for clean routing.
