    round your own cables?

    is this a good idea to do, or even just make them into many W's and make them thin?

    I either fold them into a Vee...or lay them flat against the back of the case. IMHO, much better for airflow than even rounded cables.

    why bother? you can get good quality ata133 rounded in 1 or 2 drive colored rounded cables for around $5.

    personally I like the pre-made rounded ones.

    the way i rounded my old ones, was cut them in groups of 5 wires.. and then you place them one ontop of eachother, and put twist ties on the top, middle and bottom of the cable.. and then start taping.. remove the twist tie once you get to it.

    Ok, then I'm confused now. You quoted the guy saying it right and then said the same thing, only mistyped it?


    Why quote the guy saying it right?
