Question about HP Compaq d530 PC Desktop
I've just installed an SATA harddisk to my HP d530 PC. It is located in the harddisk slots above the existing IDE drive.
The harddisks in the HP chassis are rotated by 90°, so the connections are on the left side. When I attach the SATA data cable, I can't close the chassis because the plug of the SATA cable is too long. Are there different SATA cable types which have a smaller plug?
Is this problem common to you?
Thanks in advance!
They make SATA cables with a 90 degree connection on one end.
Hopefully this will solve your clearance problems with your case.
Here is a link to website that carries these.
They work great and fit tight against the drive.
Hope this helps,
