So in building my new rig completely from scratch, apparently I overlooked the fact that I need cables to connect everything with too...Specifically, I'm pretty sure I need them for:
-Samsung 840 SSD, which came with only the actual SSD and no enclosure or wire or anything.
-Asus Serial ATA Internal OEM Drive DRW-24B1ST disc reader, same as above.
-Seagate Barracuda 3tb internal 7200, which - you guessed it - didn't come with any anything but the actual HDD


And who knows what else. Maybe my cooler (a corsair H100i)? Maybe my mobo (a GIGABYTE GA-Z87X-UD4H LGA 1150 Intel Z87 which, admittedly, hasn't come yet but as long as I'm getting cables en masse...)? Lil help?

All the connectors you need come with your motherboard. The rest come with your power supply.

Really? Great. I was all worried that I wouldn't have, say, the right enclosure or somesuch for the SSD.

Well, that's a load off my mind. Thanks!

Usually. Some mobos only provide 2 sata cables so you might need 1 more. Not hard to pick up and all sata cables are pretty much the same.

Yeah, my mobo only came with 2 cables and I needed 3 (SSD, HDD, ODD). Sounds like you'll need that many as well.
Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there

You're right. Some of my friends had to order some online, because they only got 2. I ended up having 4 in my box.

Your mobo should come with 4 black SATA cables.

My mobo came with 2 SATA cables, but I ordered 2 new ones anyways just so I could get the ones with the right angle connectors.
