My build is below. I received all of it today and just finished unboxing it all. I'm missing the cables for my hard drive. I also have a Samsung 840 Evo SSD and don't have any cables for it.

Can someone show me what cables I need? I'm looking on Newegg but I don't know which ones I need.

I want it from somewhere I can get 1 day shipping since I'd like to start my build this weekend.

Thanks!

The motherboard should come with at least 2 SATA 3.0 6GB/s cables if not you just need to pick up a few of them from Best Buy or a local computer shop. You will need one for every HDD, SDD, and optical drive that you use.

These ones support SATA 6Gb/s and have metal bits for more durability. They have the most ratings on newegg of all SATA cables, all of which 5 star ratings (and a few 4 stars). They are the right length for your case and should suit you fine! I hope you enjoy :)
