Will the Corsair 750W SFX cables reach in the P400A case?

Hi,

This is my build list: https://de.pcpartpicker.com/list/ZJ7mrV

Will my PSU cables reach my motherboard? The length of the cables are listed here but I'm not sure if it will be long enough: https://www.corsair.com/fr/en/Categories/Products/Power-Supply-Units/Power-Supply-Units-Advanced/SF-Series/p/CP-9020186-EU

Thank you

I suspect not all the cables will work, given that is an ATX case, will be challenge with those length's to get cables to some spots, namely the CPU / EPS connector will likely be on that has problems needing to stretch to the top where most CPU power input headers are.

Could pick up some replacement cable kits though.

Hi Radox,

Thank you for the reply. Two questions. Is it bad that I chose an SFX power supply for my build? (I bought it because it was on offer and has good reviews) and secondly could you send me some links for the replacement cables?

Thank you

The corsair unit itself is good. However its more ideal for a small form factor build, basically a solid quality power supply for small builds. As a result, the cables are similarly also shorter to work more efficiently in the smaller space.

It not so much that its a bad idea to use in a ATX case, you do get a bracket after all to make conversions easier, just mostly you need to usually purchase separate cables so the money you saved by getting the SFX will then be washed out by the need to get additional cables in this case.

As for cables, if you scroll down to the bottom, you can see Corsair's Type 4 Gen 4 cables will be compatible for the SF 750w. Here is the link on Corsair's page: https://www.corsair.com/fr/en/Categories/Products/Accessories-%7C-Parts/PC-Components/Power-Supplies/Premium-Individually-Sleeved-PSU-Cables-Pro-Kit-Type-4-Gen-4/p/CP-8920226

You may not need the entire kit and similarly Corsair may not have the colour you want in stock so look around. Other vendors such as cablemod also sell them for exmaple: https://eustore.cablemod.com/compatibility/ Cablemod's C-series will work with your PSU for example.

If you can return it, that could be an option to be honest, may work out more effective getting an ATX PSU with the right sized cables already included.

Why did you buy that your also going to need a adapter to mount it in the case.

Corsair themselves list a "premium" cable kit that might be long enough; you'd have to compare against the standard cable lengths, which I haven't done.
