    This is trivial, but the stiff cables included with my Gigabyte board are like working with giant tie-tapes, flat and very stiff. I'm working on a new build and these have to go.

    Looking for a set of cables (18" will suffice) that are very flexible plus come in a variety of colors, UV would be a plus.

    Maybe I'm the only one that wants rounded SATA cables...

    Thats pretty much what I had in mind :)

    I was working on a Dell yesterday... it had sata cables that were two rounded cables together, like an electrical cord. Also quite flexible.

    Oh BTW, Nice touch on your Avi... I don't think I've seen you ever change it.

    Yeah, those dell cables are wonderful. So flexible, they are like a cooked pasta noodle.

    This Silverstone might fit the bill: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812162003

    I've used the SilverStone cables before, and they were pretty flexible, not as flexible as the ones that come in the Dell's though. Definitely better than what comes with most motherboards.

    And thanks about the Avi, I changed it yesterday after seeing all the talk in the F@H sigs thread.
