On the link to your mobo, take a close look at the photo showing the board, some parts, and the box in the background. In the foreground there are two blue SATA cables and two black ones. These come with the mobo. Since your board has 4 SATA 3Gb/s and 2 SATA 6Gb/s ports, I'm guessing the cables provided are 2 of each type.

I don't know how I missed this:

Storage Devices

SATA 3Gb/s
4 x SATA 3Gb/s
1 x mSATA connector (The SATA2 5 connector will become unavailable when the mSATA connector is installed with a solid state drive.)

SATA 6Gb/s
2 x SATA 6Gb/s

Taken from the description for the mobo
