sonata with abit serillel2: enough space?

Post by Techno Pride » Thu Feb 24, 2005 3:03 am

hi, is there enough space to fit a harddrive + serillel2 inside the sonata, considering the unusual sideways installation of 3.5" drives?

thanks

I havn't had any luck with it.

I tried it with the cables running behind the disc. It may work, if you get a SATA DATA cable with a 90 degree connector...

I used to use the Addonics serial converter with my Sonata until I just got SATA spinpoints. Check

That's what I did; used cables with 90-degree connectors. It's still tight, though; the panel still bulges slightly.
