Default extend or redirect?

recently purchased an asus p5b wifi deluxe motherboard, and attached an arctic cooling freezer pro 7 to its cpu...directing the fan tward the exhaust end of the case...and it looked like the 4 pin cable would reach its destination from this position, but i later found it didnt...just....reach...

so now im searching for a 4 pin extension cable, rather than swinging the fan around and directing the air over the rest of the board...but there just doesn't appear to be any in the known universe i can acquire....has anyone had a similair problem getting hold of one?

I know you can get a splitter for the PSU to convert it into that like shown in this picture:

That would work fine with any fan. Just plug it into your powersupply and will convert the power for that fan.
