Default Round cables..

I was contemplating ordering some round sata/ide cables, but have heard ppl complain about interference with round cables and am unsure if I should even bother. What do you think?

I have round cables and they're great. They're more manuverable then the ribbon cables, and they increase airflow.

Yea, round cables are definently a lot easier to work with. I used them when I built my girlfriend's computer.

supposedly round has better airflow. but flat can have good airflow as long as you route them out of the way of fans. personally i am using round cables.
