Default Antec P180 Case Owners - I need your help!

It has been brought to my attention that many power supplies have cabling that is too short to reach some of the connectors on several mobos. For example, the 4-pin CPU connector for many Asus boards is up at the top, requiring a lengthy CPU power cable from the bottom chamber of the P180 case...

What power supplies do people have that works with this situation? And does anyone have a Hiper PSU? I'm thinking of getting one of those because it was suggested to me earlier, and it is a great supply unit.

- Intel i7-930 CPU @ 3.4 GHz w/ Zalman CNPS 9900 MAX
- Asus P6X58D Mainboard
- Corsair 1000W PSU
- Cooler Master HAF 932 Adv. Chassis
- SSD Intel 40 gig
- HDD: 2x SATA III 300 GBs
- LG Blu-Ray 8X
- Gigabyte GTX 670 WF @ 1098 Mhz
- Corsair Dominator 6 GB (2 x 2 GB Trip mode)

I bought the Ultra V-Series 500W power supply. I didnt have any trouble connecting the plugs to my asus board. Works fine for me.

I have an ocz gamextreme PSU and have it mounted in the bottom of my stacker and it reaches just fine. I ran it straight up behind the motherboard, works pretty slick and keeps the cable hidden I'm not sure how long the Hiper's cable is but I would imagine the same thing would work.
