    Looks like it may have 'spooning' ability?

    I'm liking that term too

    That sata cable at scan does look promising to me

    i think that scan one looks too tall. it would be much better to get two low profile ones and have one wire running across your mobo - it all depends what is more important to you - a well seated graphics card with a little cable mess, or cable tidiness but with pressure on the end of the vga cooler.

    Re: Is there a SATA cabling solution for this?

    Thanks all btw. ...I agree, unfortunately that scan cable looks a tad to tall, but thanks for looking

    Maplins had an attack of the saturday morning numpties, so I called a couple of other places and I'm assured that the high profile right-angled sata connectors spoon just dandy with the low profile connectors. Whether there is room in the 1cm gap is an unanswered/suck it and see job, it should work given the measurements I got over the phone.

    However, studying the board closely this morning I've got a PCI slot problem on the P5K that can't be resolved. The fat ass ACS³ not only covers the first PCI slot down, but practically sits on the second, making it unusable a) because I couldn't get another card in comfortably and b) because it would interfere with fat asses cooling.

    By the time I've shoved an Audiotrak soundcard in the bottom slot - I ain't got none left. I want two usable PCI slots.

    Damn shame, I'm pissed, that board had all the right ingredients for what I wanted, just not the layout. The Gigabyte P35 DQ6 looks ideal in layout for this, but lacks WiFi. Looks like I'm forced to look toward X38 and a board that has all of the P5K attributes with layout to suit fat ass - long shot? Hope not.
