I answered you in the other thread a while ago https://hardforum.com/threads/dan-a4-sfx-post-your-build-here-thread.1924512/page-2I hav
I have the same setup as yours and optimal calbe lenghts for me are as follows:
Hope this helps. Just wondering what temps are you getting on your ssd drive under the stock Asus heatsink.
- ATX 24pin cable - 160 mm
- EPS 8pin/2x4pin cable - 260 mm (300mm if you want to route behind the mobo sounds about right)
- GPU 6+2pin cable - 350 mm (routed throught the front panel)
- SATA 5pin cable - 150 mm
Thanks for the info. Yeah, just checked the slack on the stock PCIe cables. There is not much slack when routed below the front HDD, max 10 cm. The softer ModFlex cables should give me a couple extra cm to work with though as they should do tighter bends. I don't even really need to get custom PCIe cables, they're just nicer looking and easier to work with. So I may order 300 mm or 350 mm, not sure yet. As for the SATA power I am sure 100 mm will work as the stock cable is 100 mm to the first plug. Any excess length between the HDD and PSU is just going to get in the way of the intake fan.
Edit: I think I will go with 350 mm for the PCIe cables since it's what you used. There does not seem to be as much as 10 cm of slack on them so I don't want to risk getting cables that are too short in case the more pliable ModFlex cables don't give me as much extra usable length as I hoped. There is a lot of slack on the EPS power cable currently, easily more than 15 cm, so I think I will go with 250 mm for the EPS cable and it should still be enough length to weave behind and underneath the motherboard. The PCIe cable is really the one thing I've been really unsure about, so I'm glad I didn't go ahead and order 250 or 300 mm.
Edit2: Made my CableMod order. Thanks for the help.
Ended up with the following lengths:
ATX: 150 mm
EPS: 250 mm
PCIe 6+2/6 pin: 350 mm
SATA power: 100 mm
And also ordered the 30 cm SATA data cable, and some cable combs to make it all look pretty.
Used the 20% coupon code that came with the ASUS motherboard
It will take a while to ship (at least 5 weeks), as they are currently doing yearly warehouse maintenance and aren't processing orders. But got $10 off shipping, so that's not too bad.
