Solved Sata Cable for DVD Drive Tags: SATA Cable Components DVD Drives Last response: October 16, 2013 8:13 PM in Components Share Gaxe October 16, 2013 6:34:28 PM Ok so my motherboard, the Z87-A only came with 2 Sata 3 cables. I need 3 of them though. Now the real question is do I really need a Sata 3 cable? Will a Sata 2 or regular Sata cable do for just a dvd drive?
