You need two SATA cables to connect one SSD or are you saying that you need two cables to connect both drives? Make sure your PSU has enough cables to power it up and that your motherboard supports SATA3.

I'm not exactly sure.

Here is what I just ordered. And I only ordered one.

Sorry the late post, I'm not here all day.

That's a real good motherboard you got and that cable should work fine.

The Samsung EVOs are nice especially with those prices. I got the Pro one myself.

Use the Samsung's Magician software to clone your HDD, but make sure you download the software from the website and not use the one provided on the CD.

Apparently my MOBO didn't come with a lot of SATA Cables so I ordered one. Apparently I need two cables though to connect it. What other one do I need?


Like every hard drive, you need two cables: a data cable, which is what you ordered, and a power cable, which comes with your PSU.
