Default main power cable too short in Silverstone Temjin 6 case

I have heard that the power cable is not long enough in Silverstone's Temjin 6 case from the motherboard to the power supply since the motherboard is upside down. What can I do as far as extending this cable?

You can get an extension lead for the 20pin ATX connector.

Can you specify a specific one/kind/model? (perhaps a newegg link). This is actually the first computer that I'm building and I want to make sure I'm getting the right cable.

newegg link - this will do the trick unless of course your ATX connector is 24 pin.

Well here, let me throw some information about this.
Motherboard: MSI K8N Neo4 SLI (http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProduc...130-487&depa=1)
Power Supply: OCZ ModStream 520W (http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...104-155&depa=0)
Case was posted above.

With this information, can we determine whether I need a 24pin or a 20pin? What other information is needed?

The case is pretty much craziness. But apparently you can't use the wind tunnel if the cable is stretched very tight and there is high stress on it. Since I'm only running air cooling, the wind tunnel would definitely help.

Pretty sure you have 20 pin atx. Easy to check - just count the number of pins in the connector (should be 2 rows of 10).

If you mean the tannish type dealio to the bottom right, then it is a 24pin.

You're right, it is 24pin!

Sooo, your options are as follows :
1. if your psu is also 24pin, then just buy a 24pin extension lead :

2. If your psu is 20pin, then buy a 20pin to 24pin convertor:

The convertor is 6 inches long so should also provide the extra length you require
