pricey little c-rappers if i might add. when you asked i figure out converter instead extensions (i somehow blanked) . If theyre *real extensions* they *should work but fortunately for them they give zilch-warranty for this kind of stuff [shock] At least NZXT cable should work.

btw. why are these needed in your pc case? Usually 24-pin + 8-pin EPS came to be pretty long cables >20in, closely following those insanely 28-30 PCIe 6+8 cables. So additional extension seems pretty obsolete.
