er......in that situation you should use flat IDE. Round IDE cables do in fact cause interference, and can slow performance and possible cause data corruption. If you dont absolutely need them, then you shouldnt use them....

oh yea, and use this, rather than your static-filled table...hehe...SenFu DIY Tech Station

but seriously... i really like the idea... if i didn't have cats id do something like that...ever think about watercooling it?what are your temps like under load....btw the sideways hardrive thing... probably helps alot with the heat that get trapped under there in a normal case..all together not a bad idea

no one has noticed the modified heatsink setup on the 9700.......



all temps are unbelieveable, i run idle at 85 degrees and under 100 playing ut2003! in my case i would get to 125 under load even with a ton of fans blowing thru. i dont see myself ever going back to a case again. this is so convinient, i love it. once a week i use compressed air and its clean as new.
