yes the computer doesnt need to know where you place your hdd, it just needs the IDE cable and power connector to work

Just swap them around, why is your harddrive above your cd drives anyways? Do you have em in one of those weird HD enclosures?

Make it so both your harddrives are below your CD-Drives.

Just move the two cd/dvd drives down. Like already said, HD location doesn't matter. Hell I leave HD's hanging from wires when i'm testing.

"Do you have em in one of those weird HD enclosures?"

actually, i do.

and i cant move my CD/DVD Drives down because of the way the case is shaped, which is why i might get a new case maybe.
