Sound Blaster Fatal1ty Platinum Bulky Wire?
Got the Fatltal1ty Platinum edition sound card and the wire that connects the front panel to the sound card is really big and bulky. It looks just like the old ribbon wires used to connect old hard drives. Anyone know where I could get a new not as thick wire? Or what the name of the wire that is connecting the 2 called? Thanks!
I added the same card and I agree. After going through a lot of effort to make sure the air flow is not impeded, the cable on this thing is huge. I suggest getting a sleeving kit or cable wrap like this one http://www.coolerguys.com/flexo6.html and carefully (carefully) turning the flat mid section of the cable into a round sleeved cable. It’s still rather large, but much better than before. Some wire ties and anchors will help, too.
