Default Element G case, molex cable too short!

Thermaltake's Element G case that three fans connected with a one molex cable, however the cable is too short for it to reach to my PSU. Does anyone have any advice on how to make it longer or to make it reach the PSU?

Is there any other way that wouldn't require me to buy that? I was hoping to get this up and running today :/

if you have the tools available, you could solder on an extension i guess.

if you have other peripherals that you don't use anymore that are powered by molex cables, you could probably cut off their cables and solder them on as extension.

What if i were to use a Molex to SATA power cable? Would it work and not be detrimental?

I don't see how that would help.
