Cable Solutions for Tight Radius

Trying to clean up some of the cables that bother in my build. We have a pretty tight radius bend on ROG_STRIX_Z790-A and am looking for suggestions.Cable.jpg

Hello mdawe

That looks ok.

As long as the cables aren't kinked or pinched it will be fine.

 

 

 

I agree with Nate152.  I've had cables like that in the past that had no problems for the life of the motherboard.
But, if you're really worried about it, I think there are longer cables and/or cable extensions that can be bought online.

Should have clarified. Not worried about kinks or damage more aesthetics. Maybe something like a tight radius bend

It doesn't look bad the way it is.

I doubt a 90 degree adapter would look any better, but I do see a 180 degree adapter with a backplate.

This would work, but I'm not sure about clearance with the fans.

There is a Type A and Type B, checking the cpu power connectors for your motherboard, you'd want Type B.
