Just received my long awaited Samsung 840 SSD, and only now realized that I dot think I have a power cable for it.

Does anyone know what exactly I'm looking for.
I have plenty SATA cables, but no power cables for the drive.

You could just buy a molex to sata power adapter, but what PSU are you using that doesn't have that???

As mentioned by aatje92 the power cable should come off of the PSU. If not, then you should look for the adapter aatje92 suggested. It would be rather odd for a pre-built computer to have a SATA connection on the motherboard and not have a SATA power connector on the PSU unless it was one of the first ones sold.
