The placement of the 8-pin ATX 12v connector isn't as bad as it may seem at first sight. Obviously in an ideal world, the connector would be located right next to the edge of the motherboard, but the position that Foxconn has adopted is easily accessible thanks to the fact that the CPU socket is so close to the memory slots.
