Now, in the area colored by purple is where i want my power supply to go but the cord doen't reach that far, is there a way i can extend it? if so plz tell me. my power supply's mobo cord looks different, here's a sketch (dont have dig. camera)
ok is there an extension cord for this plug or do i have to cut the wire and add longer ones and tape it back up (wut kind of wires inside??). also, see where the dvd drive yellow cord is at? see where my dvd drive is? is there a way i can extend that too? ty

yes you can extend the wires, cut one at a time and solder longer ones between them. and i think the wire the you want to use would be 26 awg, 30 is really small, and anything bigger then 26 is well big. to extend the power from the power supply buy an extender, its safer that way, im looking for one right now i just cant remeber the website off hand so it may take a little while for me to give it to you.
so from what i am understanding your going to have HUGE power supply in this thing? one that would be bigger then the mobo, and 3 drive bays? and how are you going to have port 2 twice? j/k man just givin you a hard time on the port one
edit: tribemods its not quite the same thing but before you go starting a new thread asking about a computer psu, that will do it. im having a hard time tracking down just the extension cable for the psu.

it turned out looking like crap..
if you really really want to do this go ahead. I'll be backing you up 100%.

ty so much for your help. so would i be able to get the 26 awg from a place like radio shack? i hate shopping online. also, i have a soldering tool but i think its too big, will that matter with soldering the wires? thnx for yallz help
yes radio shaft should have 26 awg, dont expect it to be cheap from them though. as far as your iron goes, for wires it doesnt matter that much, componets yes it does. for leds and anything on circuit boards anything more then 20 watts or so and you risk frying the parts and board. i use a 15 watt myself. for small parts the smaller the tip and thinner solder the better you are, took me a while before i realised that my huge solder was running everywhere cause of the size, now im on .015 dia i think
