Default PSU Cables dont fit to my Obsidian 500D-Case

Hello there,

i already posted in the German Language Support but i can imagine theres much more going on here on the international one.
Please excuse my probably bad English.

I recently got a HX750i and an Obsidian 500D Case. The Cable management possibilites are pretty damn nice!
Tho with the HDDs and SSDs mounted on the backside the Sata-Power Cable have to be straight. All i got with the HX750i are Sata-Power Cables that connect around the edge - i cant close my Case then.
Now i looked into some Cable-Sets and even ordered one of them.
Good Thing: The End of the Sata Cables here are straight.
Bad Thing: Every other Sata connection still isnt.

I need 5 Sata Connections (HDD, Liquid Cooler, Commander Pro, 2xSSD) and i Cant fit 5 of those cables into the Case - especially because they are taking even more place than the standard ones because of the sleeves.

Now what i'm looking for is actually something like this:

But, correct me if I'm wrong, i need type 3 cables. And i cant seem to find any of those straight ones for my PSU.
Already thinking off returning my PSU and Cablekit to get one thats comatible with type 4 cables.

Has anyone any idea if/where i can get those for my PSU?

Greetings

Hi yoshicp,

You can use that SATA Type 4 for your PSU, it would be compatible.

thats unexpected now. Why are there these differences tho?
Its just for the Sata cables then i guess?

Type 4 cables included a capacitor in line to help reduce ripple. With the 24-pin cable, they are also pinned differently, so that cable isn't recommended for mixing.
