Personally I don't think it matters, I'm just looking for peoples opinions here. Do you think that one makes cable management easier than the other? All I care about is the locks

I just ordered two 90 degree ones and my board came with four 90 to 180, but who cares ahah

It can make things easier depending how the hard drives are placed and the SATA ports on the motherboard.

So I can't vote on the cables. They are specific to each build.

I prefer 90 on one end (the HDD end) and just straight on the other (the motherboard end)

Swapped the 90 degrees to 90/180, only problem is 24 was out of stock so I went with 36".... I hope that isn't to big of a hassle to cable manage....

with the 90/90 cables, it can be tough to use them on boards with the sideways connectors

My board has a similar layout, thats why the 90 for the HDD is helpful so its not super flexed and then the 180 for the mobo end.
