I just installed my new SUPERNOVA 1600 T2 and I am a bit disappointed. It seems obvious to me that a massive PSU is going to be placed in a full size case. The cables provided were too short to do any cable management. They should all be about 3 inches longer except, maybe, the VGA cables.

        You are joking, right? If EVGA sold me cables with the intention that I would need to buy replacements then I won't be doing business with them in the future. An oversight/design flaw is one thing, intentionally selling a product with accessories that won't work for the most common intended usage is another. I'd call it either fraud or theft. This post is about a SUPERNOVA 1600 T2 psu. What mid tower rig would need a 1600 watt psu?

    Thermaltake V71 at least on pictures not look as huge case.
    Maybe is bigger in live.
    People with huge cases didn't complain. If you have problem in V71 what someone with EVGA DG-87 or PC-V3000 to say.
     
    I suppose you have problem with CPU cable.
    Is it possible to install CPU Cable through upper side grommets.
     
    I always keep one 8 pin extender in house because many brands in past forgot that PSU later were installed on floor,
    not on top any more. Now last few years no such problems or they are very rear.

        I see what you mean, the picture is only about 1.5 inches.
        I have a problem with the 8 pin cpu, 24 pin motherboard & the SATA perif to the DVD, all are about 3 inches to short. The only cables that conveniently reach are the VGA and SATA cables.

    For your motherboard is the 8 pin CPU connection on the top right or top left? I assume you're using the closest grommet to route the cables through. The cables should be long enough to fit but if not then you'll need an extension cable. However if I read the spec sheet right for your PSU the EPS cable should be about 29.5 inches long and that should be more than enough. Depends a lot of how you are routing the cable.

    Specs: AMD 1920X Threadripper, Samsung SM961 M.2, 32GB Corsair RGB Vengeance,  ASRock X399 Taichi MB, Corsair, 1000D PC case, RTX 2070

    Upper left. 29.5 inches isn't all that long after 10 inches are used to get through the cable management ports.
    Would non-EVGA employees quit trying to help!!! None of you have contributed. I am not looking for a solution. I am reporting a design flaw that probably effects nearly everyone that purchases this model of PSU.
