Default Asus P5K motherboard

Alright so decent board but only have 1 complaint. How are you supposed to hook up more than 1 optical drive? http://www.memoryexpress.com/ShowIma...&ImgSize=Large

The hook up is in the bottom left side and the optical drives are on the top right. I had to hook the one that I had up to the bottom available slot just for 1 to fit and now the band is hanging over my video card and just barely reaching the optical drive. I plan on getting all 3 but now I don't even know if it will all fit.

Isn't that another one on the top right there? You need to get SATA drives now though.

Wow I sure know how to keep up with the times. I can use SATA drives now can't I, lol. Never even knew that. I used my old Drive in this new computer. Still is a pain having it hooked across my whole board though.

They only have one IDE connector, but you can use to IDE drives, just set one to slave.
