PSU cables too short

HI guys, I'm building my first rig and unfortunately my psu cables do not fit my mATX board grrr. I'm not too pleased with my psu anyway (cheap crap) so I'm thinking of buying a new one. So my question is this:
Could you suggest a decent but not expensive (if poss) 500W psu with LONG cables....dont want to experience the same thing twice ;)
thanks in advance, Jazz

  1. Corsair CX500, Seasonic SI211 520
  2. You can get a lot of PSU at less than $50 but it is better you get a 80plus certified PSU.

  3. or just increase the length yourself... (just remeber to solder the wires, and wrap them securely with electrical tape, so they don't short out.
  4. Also keep in mind that you can purchase extension cables for every PSU connection type there is.
  5. He did said it was a crappy cheap unit. Best solution is to actually replace it entirely in my opinion

    I agree 100%. I just meant extensions are available if the new unit he buys doesn't reach all the connectors.
  7. Good PSU's: Corsair, Seasonic, PC Power and Cooling. There are many other quality ones out there, but these are consistently good! Newegg, Amazon, Pcpartpicker, tigerdirect, and Microcenter.

    Good Luck
  8. i agree, but a decent psu then buy extensions like those from NZXT
