This leaves enough room for the straight SATA cable, though the drive will now foul any long PCI card you may have. Needless to say, I bought a right-angled cable rather than botching it.
Ansalmo, could you please give me the lengths of all of the cables that came with the EQ3401? The IDE cables, Serial ATA and Serial ATA power cables, etc.. Also, is a 10 inch IDE cable long enough to reach from the topmost drive bay to the IDE connector on the motherboard (taking into account other objects that might get in the way)? Thanks so much for any help!!!
