    I have a box full of ribbon cables of various sizes and lengths, from years ago when I worked on computers (many new in the bag still). I've been trying to diagnose another issue on a DH I'm rehabing and swapped out a ribbon cable with one that's longer than the 3 inch ribbon cable that usually runs between the CPU and Power Driver Board. I can't see this would be a problem except for the extra clutter but was curious if that could create another issue?

    No, extra length won't cause an issue. A minor concern might be blocking air flow and causing heat to build-up, but that shouldn't be too much of a problem.

    You could fold up the extra length of the ribbon cable in a neat 1-2" stack and then put a rubber band around it.
