These are my specs. Also this is my first time posting on this forum so please let me know if this belongs somewhere else.

CASE: Sliger sm550
CPU: Intel i9 10900k
GPU: Nvidia ASUS GTX 970 Turbo
PSU: Corsair SF750
AIO COOLER: Asetek 645LT with Noctua NF-A9x14 HS-PWM
RAM: 2x Corsair Vengeance DDR4 16gb
MOTHERBOARD: MSI Meg z490i unify
FANS: Noctua NF-P12 redux-1700 PWM


After building everything, I've discovered that the way my psu cables are positioned in a way that interferes with the AIO radiator fan. The cables point downward into the AIO fan, preventing the fan from spinning. I've measured and I have about 1 and 1/4 inch of space between the psu and the fan. Here are some pictures (let me know if you need more pictures in order to picture the problem):


Now my question is this: Is there a way to cable manage it so I don't have to buy anything extra such as custom cables? Or am I doomed with the space I have and I have to buy custom made psu cables so they can flexibly bend right before hitting the radiator. And if I were to have to buy custom cables, do you guys have any suggestions for them? Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you and have a wonderful day!

Hey, thanks for the advice. I just purchased a 92mm fan grill and it should be coming soon, I'll let you know how that works out!

It is usually the cheap and easy way, I used a grill over the 120mm fan on my 550 below the PSU.
