    Is there a SATA cabling solution for this?




    SATA's 1 & 2 (2 reduns) are obscured by the EVGA 8800 gts big fat ass casing. My question is; do they by any chance do right-angled cables that "spoon" each other?

    In other words; is there a right-angled connector that is slightly longer than the conventional right-angled one? So it spoons nicely over the top of the conventional one?

    Tell me yes, and I'll share my roobarb and custard toy collection with you.

    Re: Is there a SATA cabling solution for this?

    Cables which bend in the opposite direction would also help but I have bought a stupid amount of SATA cables in the last 6 months (trying to find some good ones for very particular runs) and none have bent the other way

    I feel your pain though, until I went water-cooled I couldn't use 2 SATA ports.

    Re: Is there a SATA cabling solution for this?

    Well that's the thing, it arrived earlier, first thing I did was insert the EVGA 8800 gts ACS into the P5K Deluxe and it most definitely over-hangs (obscures) SATA's 1 & 2. I can get a right angle cable in there no problem, but no chance with a straight SATA connector, hence the question (haven't seen any btw).

    It's not really a problem, I don't think, I'm still in a "cooling off" period, so it can go back with an explanation.

    Can we see a pic of how it is?...It is doable with a GTX, doing it as per the pic above.

    I couldnt find any angled cables that "spoon".

    Re: Is there a SATA cabling solution for this?

    Bloody camera's not here again, I was looking for it before I posted. Heads are gonna roll - mood is not good As soon as the camera is retrieved I'll take a pic.

    Basically the top 2 red ports (above the black) labelled 1 & 2 are exactly covered - but - there is a clean 1cm height gap between ports and outer card casing. So basically the 2 black ports and 5 & 6 are free.

    I knew the ACS casing was a porker of a box, but I still figured I'd have a tad more room to operate in. It appears not.

    Re: Is there a SATA cabling solution for this?

    Akasa SATA cables are very flexible, you can bend the wiring at the point of the connector to 90 degrees.

    2 x sata HDD, 2 x sata DVD-RW + future expansion option in mind.

    I might have found a suitable bendy connector as aidanjt suggested though.

    The main problem with that is that if you use the bottom 4 sata sockets, you are forced to use the fugly jmicron controller, which, really, everyone should turn off

    Re: Is there a SATA cabling solution for this?

    Would this right angle sata cable do the job?. I think you'll just have to try to find the longer angle ones by looking at the pics.

    Thanks iranu, that's one I was eargerly eyeing, I'm on the phone to maplins first thing tomorrow morning, the staff at my local store are pretty knowledgeable and helpful. Hopefully that's the right cable/connector for the job. It sure does look like it to me.

    Re: Is there a SATA cabling solution for this?

    I saw the opposite of your query here. with side by side pics. So it looks like that cable is tall enough to fit over your existing one

    Re: Is there a SATA cabling solution for this?

    Those pictures look good to me.

    The FAQ for those maplin right angled sata cables says:

    Q) Is this cable SATA II capable? - MC
    A) Unfortunatley not please have a look at A53FH. (which are the straight ones)

    So I could use those 2 covered sata sockets, and those cables, for the 2 sata Samsung DVD-RW's I'm getting, they are sata 150. So I wouldn't lose out any (I think).

    what you need is two different height 90degree sata cables and it works very well.

    asus include low-profile 90degree cables, and you put that in the slot closest to the edge of the board, and the second (normal-height 90degree - i can only talk about akasa as those are the ones i have), over the top of them. it works a treat.

    else use two of the low-profile 90degree cables and get the one furthest from the board to have the cable turn back onto itself, and towards the back of the case, and then route it around.
