Building the new P4 system. Everything was going great until I went to connect the CD/DVD ROM and Burner in. The standard 18 inch ATA cable that comes with the A-Bit mobo isn't long enough to reach. I went ahead and ordered a 36 incher (round). Still PO'd because now I gots to sit around with my thumbs up my arse while I wait.
*Caution* to anyone using the new SATA enabled mobo's....the IDE slots are alot lower now. 18 ATA cable will not reach the top 5 inch bays on on my entry level server tower. If your building a system with anything larger than a mid size tower I'd order an extra 24 or 36 inch cable to hook up your drives.
