You can buy extensions for the power cables, newegg has 'em.

mATX boards fit ATX cases, generally all the cables still reach too, but when they don't extensions are your only real option if you don't want to do something crazy like moving the PSU.

I generally check ebay for things like that and just buy a few at a time to save money. I got 4 of 5 of the 8pin extenders (they were 8inches I think) for $12 shipped last week off ebay. heck of a good price imo.

china drop ship ftw.

I am with pik4chu, I buy a few at a time, I got about 4 IDE cables, 4 SATA adapters, Molex splitters, fan y-adapters, and PCI-e adapters... always nice to have them around =)

Plus, NewEgg will charge you about $3 to ship just one small item like a single cable, or you can buy them in bulk and save like 4 bucks when you buy like 3 or 4 of them.

If it's working for you, it's fine.
