Hi all,

Going to be placing an order for parts for my first custom build. I want to know if I will have any problems with cable length of a PSU if I buy a bottom mount case? I read somewhere that it can be a concern but wanted to confirm. Will all PSU's have cables capable of reaching the proper connections?

It actually depends on the case and PSU. Most modern quality PSU's have cables that will work in a full tower case.

Thermaltake VN400A1W2N Commander Mid Tower Case and
DiabloTek PSUL675 UL Series ATX Power Supply - 675W

Would these work together?

Lol Diablotek is a brand to be avoided.

If you can, switch the Power Supply to something better like Corsair, Antec, PC Power & Cooling or Seasonic.
The only thing you could have problems is the EPS 12V 8 Pin connector (For the CPU, in the superior right corner of the motherboard), but you could get an 8 Pin extension.
