Quick question about SSD

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Recently purchased the Samsung 840 SSD, wondering i'd need to purchase my own sata cables or would they be in the box?
post #2 of 8
usually SSDs don't come with sata cables. you will have to purchase your own. on the other hand if you got a high end mainboard for your system then you should have some sata cables with the motherboard. I don't know about intel boards but I know my gigabyte 990fxa-ud3 came with 4 and im sure that crosshair 5s come with 4 as well. also FYI, some sata cables are speed limited to certain speeds so if you have to purchase one make sure to get one that's sata 6.0gbps compliant which is sata III. as sata 1 is 1.5gbps and sata II is 3.0gbps. Enjoy your new ssd. they make your pc boot super quick.
