80-conductor, 40-pin cable is for use with one or two IDE devices and is
compliant with ATA-66/100/133 standards. The 18" length is perfect for reaching
the hard disks in most systems. The two drive connectors are 12 and 18 inches
from the motherboard connector.
Rounded Cables are very
manageable and far easier to install than the conventional ribbon cables. This
cable features machine-wound twisted-pair construction for a smaller diameter
than competing cables. This results in a less bulky cable and even greater
airflow, as well as increasing the rejection of EMI/RFI interference which is a
direct function of cable cross-section.
The ends of this cable taper into
a continuous, one-piece ribbon for a cleaner look than the individual frayed
wires found on other hand-made cables. Why risk broken or disconnected wires
with cheaper hand made cables? Some rounded cables have included pull tabs for
easy removal, however, they can be easily removed to give more airflow.
