Default longer crossfire cables, do they exist?

I think to solve my cooling issues I need a longer crossfire cable. As currently the cards need to be right next to each other causing them to starve for air. Anyone ever seen them for sale anywhere? My searches have been in vain.

how long are they exactly? Lets say you have a triple crossfire setup could it skip the middle card completely? that is my goal.

Looking at the pic, there's 2 free holes between the cards - that equals tri-sli distance to me...

A quick Google search tells me that they don't exist. There are longer SLI cables though, 12cm to be exact.

Looks like the ones Frank Encruncher offered will work, though.

Ya I've seen a ton of long SLI cables, odd that there isn't very many variations of ones for Crossfire.
