I have an Antec P180 case for my comptuer and I am awaiting my other parts, one of the being a Silvertone PSU, the Zeus ST65ZF. They are ordered so I can make no changes now so what I want to find out is if the cables will be long enough (I know I should have researched this before). Someone said that I could daisy chain extension cables to reach. Finally, I am getting an ASUS M2N32 AM2 motherboard, I am not sure if this will affect anything, if you need to know any other specifications just ask.

Well...the fact that no one has answered this yet probably suggests that no one has much personal experience with this configuration...including me. I've heard that the P180 is a big case, but I haven't heard much on cable length for that PSU. I would say give it a go, and if it doesn't work, send it back for something with longer cables.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Well if its any consolation my Silverstone Strider 600w has plenty of cable length for a full atx, cant imagine the Zeus being much different being the same manufacturer and all.

Considering that the cables are at least 550mm long, I would say that you are perfectly fine.

I have an Antec Plus view case, very tall 4 bay cd drom, 6 bay hard drive case but never had a cabling problem.

i have the P180 case, and as i recall my PSU's cables were 17" or so, the Tagan U22 480W. they were all long enough, the molex cables can reach the top 5.25" bay with some more to spare. the only cable i had to make an extension for was the P4 12V cable because my board had that plug right up at the top left corner near the two PS/2 ports. with the motherboard, psu, and case by themselves the cable could reach, but with a video card in the way it was a whole other story.

well there was a minute where i had no idea how to open it, but what i do is have one thumb pressing at the top center of the side, and the other thumb on the bottom center, then using the thumbs to push the panel towards the back. then just pull the entire door straight outwards, no tilting in any direction (such as pulling the back end outwards first, dont do that. you risk breaking the 4 clips near the top and bottom center).

Thanks. So when you pull up do you go straight up or up and towards you? Thanks.

what? i dont pull up, i, after sliding the panel towards the back as much as possible, then proceed to remove the panel by pulling it out while keeping the 'plane' parallel with the 'plane' of the case. after the four clips are cleared you can do whatever you want. namely laying it against something to keep it upright as you work inside the case.
