    As we all know, the USB 3 internal cable is massive and blocks access to some internal parts of builds.

    Is there a decent right angle or sleeved low profile extension someone can point me in the direction of?

    (Mods, please move if posted in wrong forum)

    I sort of did mean this, or a cable with this at the end perhaps.
    This one has some very poor reviews, so was a bit wary.
    Surprised they aren't more commonplace given the size of the stock USB 3 cable.

    Thank you.
    Yes I saw this site but thought there may be a UK based one to buy from.

    I bought these recently to tear apart and test
    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2-Pack-S...ion-Header-Adapter-Cable-forH2U3/174548938557

    I didn't have much luck actually making my own USB 3 connector using Molex Milli-grid connectors and USB 3 DIP PCBs, but I tested these extension cables and they're fine. No markings on the wire either, so no need to sleeve. They're not very long though, so depending on your case you might not have enough length to tuck the connection away.
