This is my first build. Case : phanteks evolv atx vga : asus rog strix oc 1080ti psu corsair hx1000

I was quite close to the finish line , when this thing happens... the pcie cables from my PSU to my vga is prevent me from closing the tempered glass. the cable neck near the connector is to thick and very hard to bend. How can i solve this ?

I would unplug it and just work on it a bit, bending it gently until you get it to a point where it will close.

Option 2 would be to find a new routing for those cables.

Option 3 would be picking up a cable extension kit from somewhere like cable mod.

Maybe try Kareon Kables and see if there's a right angle adapter/cable that fits: https://kareonkables.com/
I haven't gotten anything from the site myself yet, but they seem to have the most right adapters/cables available for PC cables.
