    Bidding for todays most randomest question but here goes. :p

    I've got one of those desks with a space for a PC, standard width ie 500mm which is fine for most midi cases but once you've connected up the power lead, video lead etc etc the case sticks out a good 3 or 4 inches. :mad:

    Are there low profile versions of these things which will alllow the case to go further back ? I don't really want to go hacking more holes at the back of the desk to allow it to fit in better.. :(

    That is all, I thank you.. :D

    Do you mean like the kettle leads that are at a 45 degree angle?

    You can certainly get L-shaped power cables, and I've found L-shaped VGA and HDMI adaptors for sale.
    However, I cannot find any L-Shaped DVI connectors.

    It really depends which cables are giving you the most trouble

    Thanks - it's the DVI and Power ones that are the main culprits I think. I'll have a hunt for the kettle leads and if anyone finds a right angled DVI solution let me know ! :)
