RGB Extension cables?

Does Corsair--or anyone for that matter--make RGB extension cables?  I've scoured the web site and don't find any. The Corsair RGB cables and connectors appear to be proprietary and "standard" RGB cables won't work.

4-pin fan extension cables are easy to find, but I can't find 4-pin RGB extensions anywhere. I'm trying to wrap up my new build but can't quite get my Commander Core XT, which connects my front and side panel fans, in the case with all cables connected. It doesn't seem to matter whether I route the front fan's cables over the top or on the bottom, they're just about 8-10 inches short of reaching the CC XT. I can almost make it work if I just leave the CC XT loose on the bottom of the case, but it's still slightly short.

My PSU cabling is wide, flat, and STIFF, making the cabling a real chore. I'd try to substitute round and more flexible cables, but this PSU is a Thermaltake Toughpower 1200 W ATX 3.0, and it appears the pin assignments are different than regular ATX.

I appreciate any leads in locating some of these extension cables.

As Emily Latella said...."Never Mind..."  I fiddled with my fan cables, rerouted the front fans over the top--except for the bottom fan which I routed to the bottom, flipped the side fans to make the cables closer to the MB tray, and was able to get the Commander Core XT mounted on the back of the MB accessory tray. I only had to use one fan extension cable to get all the connections made. Still a mess of wires, but that's what the back-side door on the 5000X is for.  Now, if only my pre-ordered Samsung 990 Pro M.2's would ship...

Hopefully this is not a day of disappointment.  Some retailers with the wrong release date.

 

Corsair does not sell RGB extensions, although a few controllers come with some in the package.  A lot of us have bought from here and below is a post tips on how to make your own if preferred.
