As long as the 20 pin connector will hook up to the power supply correctly i do not see why you cannot use the regular connector.

Well, most power supplys do not have a connector that plugs into the PS. Most are hardwired to the PS. I was thinking more of a extender 20 pin cable so you could bent it to fit better. I know of no other power supplys that have any connector at the PS.

Well, most power supplys do not have a connector that plugs into the PS.

if it's a modular power supply ( like this one) then there are connectors on the PSU..and nothing is hardwired coming out of it..allowing you to reduce clutter by only putting in the cables that you need....as long as you get a modular 20 pin cable like the one that came with it (as far as having the right connectors on both ends) then you should be fine...as i think adding an extender to the cable would make your issue worse
