What sort of glue? hot glue gun or something of that sort?
These are ultra uv reative cables. they are quite heavy duty and im guessing why thats why they are coming undone or lose. the OEM cables which came with the board werent long enough. I will buy some other cables to see if that makes any difference and then glue them for safe measure. I did find some western digital cables that securly lock on the hard drives but nothing for the other end where they are coming undone. Funny they dont come off the hard drives though.
Be carful though, some superglues can melt plastic. So use some thing superficial like white glue, its not that strong but its easily cleaned and should be enough to hold it in place. May not look nice but it should work, but as I said earlier you might want to look into new cables.
Yeah, I was hinting at that in my above post without actually saying it
The glue method will work but I dont really recommend it, you should really do it right and just buy new cables that work better.
i had these uv reactive sata cables (ultra brandname) and they were coming loose. I forget what they cost but they werent worth it. I purchased them from tigerdirect (which sucks too).
Anyway i went though the spare parts that came with the asus a8nsli mobo and put the ****ty looking oem red sata cables on the drives. What do ya know ..they actually snap ...thats right snap into place ..problem solved.
Being i never used sata drives before i didnt know this to be true. So DO NOT BUY ultra cables ..they suck ass. And never buy anything from tigerdirect.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
