Default Stupid question but is this possible?

is it possible to desolder a 24pin connector or any of connectors on the front and resolder it on the otherside, as in the behind the motherboard? I know it's a stupid question but it wouldn't hurt to ask.

If you did that all the pins would be wrong in regards to what voltages are supposed to be at certain points from the power supply. Now I have to ask, why do you want to do this?

I see, well I just thought it would be kind of neat to have a cleaner look with all the cables connected behind.

I'm guessing looking for backside of the case connection for cable management. :)

i have no problem with cable management, it was just an idea I had at work :)...though I do wish they didn't stick the 8pin motherboard connector all the way on top, close to my cpu heatsink on my p5q pro :/

There are times I wish they'd develop a right-angled 24-pin ATX header for motherboards.

Some old Macs from the mid 90s had the equivalent of that. They just used longer pins that were bent with a regular plastic connector on the end. You would be better off just chopping an extension and soldering that directly to the mobo imo.

Looks like one of the low-end ones though because the higher-end ones had a TEC between the CPU and the heatsink. :P
