Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
Shielded Rounded IDE Cables - Shielded Rounded IDE Cables
Fri, January 24 2003 | 9:01AM | PermaLink Feedback?
ViperLair checks out some Shielded Rounded IDE Cables... They compare them to regular IDE cables and they'll let you know if they're worth the extra $$$.

Unless we're talking about SCSI or proprietary devices, IDE cables are fat and have a large amount of surface area, causing IDE to be one of the main culprits when trying to find airflow obstruction. So, as many a computer "modder" has done before, people started to improvise - they started to cut up their cables lengthwise, and twist their cables, or enclose them in heat shrink-wrapping or using cable ties to keep the wires tightly bound together, in a "rounded" shape.
