Default Corsair 678c Problems

Good Evening all, hopefully someone will be able to answer my questions

I started my first water cooled computer build using the hydro X configuration tool on corsair website. Said everything was compatible and to an extent it is except I ran into 2 issues so far

I am using a Gigabyte Aorus x570 Xtreme motherboard and the Corsair 678c case

1. problem is the USB cable from the case front panel can not be plugged into the motherboard as there is not enough clearance



2. Top mounted radiator + fan makes plugging in the EPS/ATX12V 8 pin (4+4) cable impossible


I've looked around and saw some 90 degree USB adapters but they are USB 3.0 and not 3.2, not sure if these are compatible

As for the EPS cable, if I get the ones without the heat shrink i.e. the individually corded ones like

SKU CP-8920238
Premium Individually Sleeved EPS12V/ATX12V Cables Type 4 Gen 4 White

will these be able to be bent enough to pass through the small gap between the motherboard and the top radiator?


Thanks in advance.
