Need a few SATA 3.0 cables

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I built my new computer but I only have 1 SATA 3.0 (6gb/sec or whatever it is) SATA cable. I'd like to get more, where 1 side is a right angle for where it plugs into the HDs. Does anyone have a good recommendation on where to get a pack of 1-side right angle SATA 3.0 cables?

SATA cable = SATA cable

It's like PCIe, if it will fit, it will work, the "SATA 3 cable" is marketing BS. That said, are you in the states? Pretty much every computer retailer sells SATA cable. From Newegg to FrozenCPU. (Again, if you are stateside).

If you have an "older" cable that fits. go with it, save a few bucks.

Yup no difference in speed from sata 1 cable to sata 3. However if you are just looking for some new cables (because of 90 on one end, etc) newegg has tons of them at reasonable prices.

The sleeved sata cables sold by retailers are ridiculously expensive. Anyone know any cheaper sources?

Don't really know if you can find sleeved ones for cheap, but with SATA cables, it isn't difficult to sleeve them. I'd say the result is a lot better than having to sleeve those 80/2pin ATA cables.

But buying the resources to do so would probably cost as much as just buying a few of the pre-sleeved ones. It would only really make sense if you were going to sleeve a lot more cables than just them.

Heres my 2 cents. If your using an SSD(i saying this to point out that its maxing out the SATA 3 port) then even if you use a SATA 1 connector, you will still max out the port. There is no change in quality with the cables. What I do suggest, is that you check whether you want any right angled connectors or any connectors with the latches to clip to the port. I personally only use SATA Cables with the clips/latches. It looks nice and I'm sure that when I'm managing my cables I won't pull it out by mistake. Sure the normal one won't come out easily, but this is just my personal preference.
