Hi! After checking for compatibility with parts, and even buying some parts on my first PC build, It came to my attention that some of the ordered parts did not come with cables. Knowing nothing on the subject, I figured I could post all my parts on TomsHardware, and get the response I need. So, here is the question: How many, and what cables do I need for my PC build?

Parts below:

Power Supply: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

SSD (To install windows on): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The power supply and motherboard will come with all necessary cables. If you get extra fans you may need a spliting cable to accomadate the extra fans

So I do not need to get any extra cables? I'm pretty sure I saw that the motherboard only came with one cable. Please check!

The board has 6 sata ports (you only need 3) so it wouldn't make sense for them to only send one cable. I also checked the lowest rated reveiws and no one complained about a cable shortage. However the board itself appears to have a high rate of failure.
