So a couple months ago I swapped my PSU out for a Corsair CX550M. My case is a Lian Li 205m. Something I noticed when doing the cable management, is that the 24-pin mobo power cable is very thick and it led to me having problems closing the side panel. Eventually I just forced the panel to slide in and held it down while screwing in the 2 panel screws. However there is a small little gap in the panel from the cables pushing on it.

I don't have any problems with the gap itself, but I'm just worried if it's okay for the cables themselves. I have seen people saying they needed to basically put their knee on the side panel to close it, and while I didn't have to do that, I still want to make sure. Like I said, it's been like this for a couple months, but I have to worry about something every day and today is this I guess.

Thank you!

I would leave it be and I think it will be fine.
The cables are tough...as long as you aren't squeezing them against something that is sharp.
I don't think there's anything wrong with it other than being able to see the panel pushed out a little.
