  • Routing IDE cable in VoomPC/Ampie case

    I have the VoomPC/Ampie case, an M1-ATX PS, and a M10000 motherboard.

    My issue is I that I believe my IDE cable was damaged due to the way it was routed (twisted / turned/ squeezed) to the motherboard.

    The reason I found it so difficult to route the cable is because the hard drive sits under the power supply, which sits on two stand offs. Not only is the PS like a 1mm above the hard drive, but the standoff also gets in the way.

    Does anyone have any pics / suggestions on how to route my IDE cable in this configuration?

    Thanks

    just flip it and make sure the ribbon cable does not get tamper with the power supply and you should be find. also dont get a cable that is too long.
    6" should be fine
