ok, for this, the items required are..
1. a Knife/ Blade having a sharp tip, sharp edge and a blunt edge
2. two IDE Cables (other than one installed, incase things gets messed up)
3. tape- the one used to tie the wires and cables

step1> using the knife/blade make shreads of the IDE cable. Make sure that the insulation is not damaged.


step2> now group together the shreaded parts together and tie them with the wire.


step3> install it.. see the difference.


Caution:
1. take care while cutting, my friend used a surgical blade and had to go to the doctor for patch work for his fingers
2. if u damage the insulations and they get short or get in contace with the cabinet, your MOBO, HDD may get damaged.

what you've made is called "COBRA" cables
for perfectionists u can separate EACH wire like i've done
instead of tying it up u can sheath it .. or u can use insulating tape along its length !
take above mentioned precautions ... and yes. . it does work for better airflow
nice work club_pranay
