    I plan on using the newish coolermaster elite 120 case, with the z77 asus itx board/i5 3570k and a 660 ti

    Due to the cramped space in an itx case, does anyone know of a short cabled PSU?
    I know silverstone has the short cable set for the strider series of power supplies, but is that the only one?

    I could always mod a psu, but I'd rather not have to deal with the hassle, I don't have a good crimper or the pins needed to do that kind of mod correctly.

    Thanks TPU! =D

    Generic PSUs typically have short cables. But then again they're not exactly recommended...:laugh:

    Check out TPU's review on that case, it would seem that the use of a PSU with "typical" cable lengths didn't really cause a big problem.

    "I used a unit of standard length with plenty of room left for the slightly above average long ODD on the opposite side. You should, ultimately, be alright, even with a somewhat longer power supply."

    Thanks guys, I thought for some reason the space for the PSU was smaller than that, if Darksaber could fit a non-modular psu in there then nearly anything should fit.
