Default Custom Power Cables (Sata)

Hey guys, does anyone know of an online store that sells custom sata cables. What I have a problem with is my sata power, the cables take up a lot of room because they look like this which makes the cable buldge and look terrible in the case. Does anyone know here I might be able to find some cables that look like this?

Well I know you can get these. These are like in-line connectors. You put the wires in the slots and push the cap over the top, and presto, you have a 90 degree connector.

No it's not hard to do. You just put the wires over the pins, and then push the plastic cap over them. Easy.
