power supply cables lengths

Specs: windows 7, Amd Opteron 170/2GB
Where can I buy longer length power supply cables? My ocz zx 1250w psu is coming and im afraid the power cables arent long enough so I want to buy longer ones. I see they have the 4 pin, 6 pin, 8 pin, and 24 pin power cables on some websites but not the 5 pin to peripherals. For the 5 pin to peripheral connectors do they have ones that are just the peripheral connector itself? For example a 5 pin to sata and 5 pin to molex. They usually have them in sets like 5 pin to 2-3 sata and 5 pin 2-3 molex. I would like them just to be a 5 pin to sata and 5 pin to molex having one connector only on both ends at different lengths ranging from 6"-24".

What makes you think you need to extend all those cables? Do you have a case with the PSU mounted on the bottom? And what type of system do you have that would require an overpriced 1250W PSU? That model has 12 SATA plugs & 9 Peripheral (aka Molex) plugs. Here's the connector list:

1 x Main connector (20+4Pin)
2 x 4+4 Pin CPU
9 x Peripheral
12 x SATA
1 x Floppy
6 x PCI-E

You already ordered it so wait until you know if you need anything. For modular PS's you will either need to get from manufacturer or use extension plugs. Wait and get only what you need because longer is not better unless you need it.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

I read the reviews and a lot of people say some cables arent long enough to go behind the tower. my old ultra x3 1000w was not long enough to go behind the tower. just want that clean look and hide as much cables as I can for better airflow. yea ill wait before I find cables just thought I find out where I can find different length cables. I dont think the ocz zx 1250w psu is overpriced at all, it is one of the cheapest among 1200w+ psu's. I bought my ultra x3 1000w for about $300 back in the day. here are my specs of my system.

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit
Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD7 Motherboard
Corsair Dominator GT CMT8GX3M2A2000C9 DDR3 2000 MHz 2 x 4 GB Memory
AMD Radeon HD 6990 x 2 Crossfire Video Cards
Corsair Force Series 3 CSSD-F60GB3-BK SSD
Lite-On IHES208 SATA BD Drive
