Interesting. A battle of yet baseless assertions. Choose your lie--but maybe I'm completely out of touch.
I'll choose reductions in temperature over illusionary gains in signal integrity any day.
These forums are so interesting. The things people choose to believe... Or want to believe.
FWIW, I actually did have trouble once with DMA being enabled on a round cable I made with one particular hard drive (IBM 20GB 34GXP).
Also, I really have no choice but to use round cables in my SFF case. I simply couldn't fit flat cables without *really* blocking airflow (say, blocking 1/3 of the single main case fan).
