My System Specs

Default Bottom mount PSU cable lengths

I am buying my brother a case for Christmas, since he continues to upgrade his computer in an old hot case. I am keeping cost low, so it is pretty much narrowed down to an Antec 200, 300 (which I have and love for the money), or Cooler Master Elite (310, 330, etc).

His PSU is a generic 500W (not sure of the brand).

Question: Do all PSU have cables that are long enough to go to the power connectors on a motherboard in a bottom mount PSU case??? Anyone have any experience with cables being too short in a bottom mount case of any type??? Should I play it on the safe side and go with a lower airflow top mount PSU case like the cooler masters mentioned (or something else)???
