• SATA cables?
    20 replies, posted
I'm building a new PC and all of the parts should be arriving by my house by Wednesday... However, I was reading that I would need to have SATA cables for the HDD I ordered (WD 1TB Black [url]http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136284[/url]). What exactly do I need to buy to connect this to the PSU or is it special cables that I need to connect it to the motherboard? Also, would I need 2 cables since the DVD Burner I ordered is also OEM (A review I was reading about the HDD said you would need SATA cables since it was OEM)?
It [B]should[/B] come with everything you need. Edit: Yea western digital always includes everything.
if you bought a motherboard aswell, it will come with at least 2 sata cables

OP get any of these: [url]http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=2010010001%20117752937%201177530217%201177112211&name=2[/url] Just pick out the length you need. Edit: this is for connecting to the motherboard, your power supply has / should have the power connectors you need.

Yeah, that was just stated.

You should get everything needed to connect your parts.
If its OEM it won't have a sata cable included. It'll just be the drive wrapped in anti static wrapped in bubble wrap. The motherboard SHOULD come with at least one sata cable, but you may need to buy a second. In my case I had to buy a second sata cable because my drives were both OEM and my motherboard only came with one cable.
What the fuck kind of motherboard did you buy that only came with [I]one[/I] SATA cable? Mine came with six.
Mine only has support for six SATA drives, and it came with eight cables.
