    Short Y power cables?

    Wondering if anyone has a source for short (1 foot) Y power cables? I know there are short power cables and Y adapters. But this is bulky and cumbersome to tie up. Wondering if anyone knows of a short Y cable for servers?

    12inch Y power cables might be hard to find... Are you willing to do any bigger? I agree though it's tough to tie them up and I hate when things are tangled.

    I could go longer I guess. But then I begin to negate the use for the short cables in the first place Shortest I found so far is a 6 foot one from startech.com.

    Update: OK, I think I finally found what I was looking for. Hosa (usually audio cables?) makes one: http://www.amazon.com/Hosa-YIE406-Du.../dp/B0010CNATK. I ordered 2 to try out.

    Any thing less than 1ft becomes hard to use.

    Here is a picture of how we do our dual psu 1u.
