rounded cables
« on: August 07, 2001, 02:21:00 AM »

with the new rounded cables and the incredible urge to mod my case and the stuff in it, what is the specs on the ata 100 rounded cables? do they work with ata33 devices like cdroms, etc? right now in my cases i have an ata 100 cable, ata-33 cable and a floppy cable and it would be great if I could run all my drives (not floppy) on 1 cable. let me know

Seen the rounded SCSI for sale. I removed all the SCSI from my systems about a year ago. Was old, slow, and hot compared to todays HDDs and CD burners.

I love scsi, in the proper setup. Like General says, it is to costly for me anymore. I saw where Segate has a 180gb lvd160 drive. It is almost 1" tall so it takes 2 slots. Still thats 20gb more then 2x80gb ide drives. Imagine a 14bay external drive bay with 7 of those bad boys *drool*

For home use it just aint worth it unless you are a multi-billionare that likes to release buggy sw before it's time and think you own the world  :P

my point exactly... the seven drive setup would be real nice, and then an adaptec four channel raid card or something....

man would that generate a lot of noise and heat...
