A way to extend the 4-pin CPU power cable?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Can anyone suggest a way of extending the 4-pin CPU power cable?

I am trying to do some cable management but the PSU is at the bottom of that case and the 4-pin power is too short.

Do you think I can just splice the wires and add some wire to make it longer? or should I buy an extension cable? Does anyone know where they sell those?

Thanks.

Little cheaper. Call the smaller local computer shops in the area. A lot of times they have these.
