My motherboard is an XFX 750i, and the SATA outputs on the board are 90 degrees. This would not be a problem except that it is almost right where my hard drive bay is on my Ultra Mid Tower. Because of this, my regular SATA cable only barely fits. It works, but I'd like to find a 90 degree cable.
Problem: All the 90 degree cables I find are based on the 90 degree part being placed into the hard drive, not the board. So if I placed the 90 degree part into the board, it would face the cable downward, which is even worse than what I have now. Has anyone found a 90 degree cable that can be plugged into the board to face up?
Im pretty sure SATA cables need all of the wires to be the same length to work properly so doing a bend in the same plane as the cable would have the outside ones being longer so you would need to do the opposite bend at the top and i think that would be a bit trickier to make and deal with.
