  1. Best answer
    You should not need additional cables until you are ready to add more SATA devices, the PSU has all power cables and the motherboard will come with 2 SATA cables (you're covered for your build). You should not need anything more than a philips head screwdriver (and the parts listed above) to complete your build. Thermal compound will be pre-applied to the stock cooler.
    The only critique I have is the PSU you've chosen, although I found no legitimate reviews for that PSU, I did find one for another model in that line-up and it really wasn't good (poor voltage regulation on the 5v and 3.3v rails - both went out of specs). Your PSU is not the place to cut corners on your budget, I'll suggest looking to brands such as Antec, Corsair, Enermax, SeaSonic, or XFX for a PSU of a little higher quality (It'll cost a bit more but there is a reason for that)
  2. thanks one last question so i dont need any thermal paste?
    any good cheap psu?...
  3. No thermal paste is needed for the stock cooler. If you remove the heat sink or decide to get an aftermarket cooler later, you'll need it then, not yet though.

    Where are you shopping (country), I'll see what I can find for a PSU that is not too pricy but will give the quality you need
  4. is psu corsair cx 600 v2 good?
  5. The CX models, Corsair's "Builder Series" are decent entry level PSU's, there are better, the CX600V2 being a discontinued model now but it does have all the wanted protections and does represent a good value. I'd be inclined to believe it'll work.
  6. thanks a lot dude :)
