Re: Retro Rig Photo Thread

Re: Retro Rig Photo Thread

Can you please share what the longest round cable within IDE spec is? :D Sure, it was a Belkin 18" round IDE cable. I seem to remember it was just long enough.

I realized that almost all of these that I know are by Microsoft, with the only other one I …
