IDE round cables and the ribbon type are the same thing but one is ribbon and one is round The round ones are rather cheap only like 5-15 dallors for set of them but round cables also offer better airflow within the system so which could lead to better cooling temps and more OCing! (BTW clean up your PSU wires for better airflow )
