No straight Corsair SATA cables?

Hi,

I'm currently building a new PC in the Fractal Design Meshify-C case and using a Corsair TX550M PSU. Now the thing is I'm installing an SSD, which is mounted vertically behind the motherboard. Now the problem is that the TX550M comes with 2 SATA power cables, but both have a 90-degree angled end! Why? Why doesn't one have a straight end connector? Because the SSD is practically flat against the side panel the cable has to make an extreme angle and basically doesn't even fit.

Is this normal?

The drawbacks of modern PSU's using ribbon-style cables. It sucks. Don't think I've found a ribbon-style cable PSU that has normal straight plugs.
