    Definitely if you want better case cooling.

    Performance degradation? Microfractional. (yes, I did just make that word up)

    Heh, if you use teflon nothing will stick to it :D

    Like what Vehementi said, rounded SCSI cables are mainly used to increase air flow for better cooling in the case, whereas the standard flat ribbons block air flow. I highly doubt there's any performance increase. It'll more likely slow down the IDE access instead... like what Vehementi said :p

    I could do with something like that, I think. Its not exactly a mess in there, but its getting there.

    Hmmm...I guess I will go with some cool rounded SCSI cabels again to match my IDE cables! I will let you know if there is any performance decrease!
