    Rounded SATA cables?

    Looking for cheap rounded SATA cables, can anyone recommend any sites?

    I looked at eBay and Scan.co.uk but they seem to cost anything from £2.50 to £3.50 for the sizes I want, seems a lot for one cable? Or is that price really fair for these cables?

    Yeah, found some on eBay from a user/ shop called cheesefeat he has said for 8 cables is about £15 and £20 for 10 cables. Seems so much, do people normally spend so much on cables like these?

    Also, I can't decide if I should get long or short cables? I only have a small case, so short cables would work, but it wouldn't give such a nice look, since it be direct from the port to the HDD's.

    While the long cable, I could run them back the HDD cage then back in again to the HDD's.

    Shorts are 30cm, while the longs are 50cm. Think the long ones are better.

    30cm is from connector to connector, so they can be a bit short sometimes

    Awesome, so good seller then?

    Currently looking at the Black Cable Modding Sleeving Kit he has, might pick that up.

    I used all round SATA cables in my last build.
    Purchased them from cheesefeat (Richard).
    He was very helpful (even ordered come cables in especially for me).
    Looking @ the price, that's about the same price I paid.

    Re: Rounded SATA cables?

    I bought 30cm rounded SATA cables and I wish I had bought the 50cm ones. My case is the Lian Li PC-9F, the HDDs face away from the motherboard tray and 30cm is not enough to route them stealthily. Maybe if they faced the motherboard tray then 50cm might be too long...
