HDD Card Warps due to IDE Cable - Looking for Alternative ?

I have this IDE Card inside my PC for one of my HDD. The problem, the card warps due to the IDE cable touching the GPU, as both are extremely close to each other. I've looked for an alternative that could convert IDE to SATA, I decided to see if anyone has any recommendations ?

There are SATA/IDE adapters that plug directly into the IDE device. Maybe that is an alternative.
Here is one I found at
