I just installed the Z490 FTW in my case. The headers on the bottom of the board face down and not up which makes it hard in my case to plug the fans and power pins in. Is there an L-Shaped adapter I can buy?

    Try to use the one on the right side (PWR_FAN) for intake using a fan splitter cable (www.amazon.com/gp/product/B082H6D611/) and then the SYS_FAN1 for outtake. Probably this will help you if you don't have enough space.
     
    My case is a Corsair 680X and the space is enough for all headers. What case do you have?

    I have a Corsair 500D case.
    Basically, all the pins on the bottom are right against the power supply shroud and make it very difficult to plug in anything on the bottom pins. I feel like the pins for the case power, reset, led lights, and some of the fan ones are going to be slanted.

    I have seen these used but must be careful of metal touching and shorting out the exposed pin “elbow” On the case metal. Would have to 3d print a cover or trim the metal back if it touches.
