DL 380 G8 with second 8SFF drive backplane cage cable won't reach

I am trying to install a second 8 disk drive cage in to a DL380 Gen to connect to a P420 controller. These are the items I was sent from coporate. Since this is the secodn drive cage for the server I have removed the DVD module and that is where the new drive is. On the left if facing the front. My issue is if I run the supplied mini SAS cable around the fan module on either side I am short on reaching the expansion slots where the P420 will go. Is there another cable I need to order. I can't seem to find one listed on Hp's site and short of going third party and just buying a random cable that all seem to have extra connectors from that the one that came with the drive cage, i don't see how to get this cofnig to work. Or is there a better way to run the data cable?

The cable set comes as part of the SFF cage kit:
