not a bad idea, but what if mobo manufactures put the connector at a right angle on the mobo. then that would be even better

Nah man, I didn't realise your HDD was reverse. That's why I edited and put 10/10. it looks great, I wish I could get ahold of some 90degree cables and do the same work! Good job!
