I find that Amazon frequently has what Newegg does for the same price, but better/easier returns. I sometimes buy from Amazon even when the OEM has online sales because Amazon offers better terms. A recent belt I bought needed to be returned. It was a "buyer pays shipping on returns" item, same as the vendor, but no "15% restocking fee". When the vendor had not refunded 7 days after receiving the return one email to Amazon got the refund processed within hours.returns are a pain in the ass compared to other competitors.
You may have answered your own question. Get a straight SATA cable.The SATA cable I am using is one of those right-angle ones so it bumps up against metal and can't move any further.
