the connectors on your cables are too big.

do you have the ones that came with mobo?

they should work in that spot.

do you think a smaller connector will solve?

read the reviews for your mobo (at newegg) ... sort on "worst review first".

I agree a slim cable would be alot better of a choice. But apparently OP isn't happy with that, so i posted the link to SAT controller cards.

Just trying to help, don't want anyone to get the wrong idea (that I support the expensive route instead of the cheap and simple one)

naw ... no sweat ... live-n-learn .. as a "general response", it was not completely wrong.

"X" and I know that this is extremely common and that there IS a specific fix ... we are not just guessing at a likely possibilty of a cure ... We KNOW the exact cable exists to cure and exactly how much THAT solution costs.

I often hem-n-haw, just a bit, to allow the OP to ponder outside their expectations ...

... It's like volley-ball ... I "set" the ball and "X" spiked it.
