Anyone ever try a round IDE cable for OG Xbox?

They look cool and you don't have to fold. Maybe could go shorter too.

I tried one but it was not flexible enough and didn't fit well at all.

I've used a round 80 wire cable in my 2tb project here, its a bit of a hatchet job though & am not sure of its longevity as I've stripped the braiding off it to allow for greater flexibility - that said I've been using it for a number of months now without issue.

I managed to fit one once but if you plan on installing leds etc, youll find youll quickly run out of space for the lid to shut properly, I wouldnt use one, I usually unwrap them when I get one.

I did one for myself and it was a lot of work. I don't think it's worth it since it doesn't look much better.
If you want one badly, just buy it
