I am trying to install a SSD in a HP 5740 Thin Client. The SATA connector on the board is female and the drive should plug in but then the case would not close.. I am looking for a right or possibly left angle male to female SADA cable 10-12 inches long.

Thanks, I now have the M-F cable and will try to load Linux on it this weekend.
Bummer if HP makes it propriety...

WOW! The Samsung 64GB SSD is working great! Running Linux-CentOS.
I found a Thin Client expansion chassis with a small fan and only had to cut the metal lid to allow passing the straight SATA Data/Power connector through it.
An 8" M-F SATA cable was perfect length.

Thanks for the hints. Hope this info helps others attempting the same task.
