now i bought last week from http://www.cross-mark.com/50cm-serial-attached-scsisas-sff8484-sata-cable-p-842.html, the site was suggested on the first page, they use registered shipping.
my order is still on "Processing" which is weird because it is written in their faq that it should only take 1-2 days to process a order. I hope that this website is still alive or I will have to go through Paypal again to get refunded lol

I just want to use my perc 5i LOL need those cables

These are SAS cables but they will connect (and correctly interface with) SATA hard drives -OR- sas hard drives. Personally I perfer the ones that let me plug in a SATA Power Cable from my power supply instead of those that have their own molex connectors coming out, as it's just easier, with most power supplies having multiple SATA-Power plugs these days.

My 1000-watt for my gaming computer for example came with 10 x SATA-Power plugs, which was perfect for my needs. 8 for my raided hard drives, 1 for my 1TB SATA drive, and 1 for my optical drive.

You mean like this one? It's cheaper (for me) than your search turns up as well. Same as what i'm using in my Perc 6 with sata drives, works well enough.

Actually you have to be careful with those. A good portion of those individual-SATA-Connector cables won't route data correctly because a lot of em are designed to work with backplanes. The cables I suggested are actually SAS cables, which are designed to go directly to the hard drive (And will work with SATA too).

The only 4-connector-SATA-DATA connector cables I would safely suggest to anyone is the Tripp Lite S502-20N cable.

I didn't know that, though it makes sense. Thanks for the heads up.

I'm assuming you meant "Tripp Lite S502-20N cable". I'm using two of these in this computer I'm typing this on right now, with 8 total drives, all SATA-II hard drives, connected to a PERC 5/i. I just thought I'd add that so you know. smile.gif

I bought this one and have had 3 drives connected to it. Tried connecting the 4th drive as a standalone drive, and it worked. I guess they'd work for any drives though. biggrin.gif
