Hi Ryan.

I have a tall tower case with six 5.25" drive bays. The 
standard off-the-shelf IDE cables tend to have the slave 
connector about half way up the cable. So this means I can 
only use the master connector on standard cables. If I try 
to use the slave connetor, that makes the cable to short to 
reach the m/b.

These people here:


can make custom cables for not much more than an 
off-the-shelf version. The maximum length is 40", and I can 
choose where I want the slave connector to be. Anything from 
3" to 13" away from the master connector. Now that's what I 
call service!

Kind Regards,

Keith Roberts
