    My case is a double depth one (two mid-towers bolted together) and
    dark and somewhat packed....but yes I have done that for the pata raid
    controller......I might just wander around an electical wholesaler and
    get heat shrink of a size that goes over the fittings, if I cant get
    different cables but that stuff is expensive, cables would actually be
    about the same cost.

    There is a Reason for it length, may be a eSTATA cable is what you need.

  5. The recommended maximum length of an internal SATA cable is 1 metre.
    Most HDD vendor-supplied cables are nowhere near that length.

    The recommended maximum length of an eSATA 3Gbit/s cable is 2 metres.
