1. No idea how long they are. You mostly read what other people have experienced in Newegg reviews assuming the manufacturer hasn't listed cable lengths.
2. Some cases are better than others for cable management. Since you're concerned about it, a modular or semi-modular power supply should be higher on your list of needs. The main thing I've found is how much room between the motherboard tray and the side of the case next to it, followed by holes through the motherboard tray that let you snake cables in and out as needed. It's a situational thing and there isn't one way to do it. Better cases (meaning cases geared more toward enthusiasts) tend to do better in this regard.
