What type of cables do I need to use to connect the DVD/CD player, the SSD, and HDD to the MOBO? No cables were included in their boxes! This is my first attempt at assembling a computer so I really don't know. I only see two cables in the boxe that the motherboard came in and they are 1 right angle 6gbs sata cable as well as 1 straight 6gbs cable each about 6 inches long. So I am guessing from that I will connect the DVD/CD player, SSD, and HDD each to power supply and as well as to a sata cable running back to the motherboard. Therefore, I need to purchase some additional cables. Also, is it ok to connect all the fans direct to the PSU using the 3pin to 4pin adaptors included with them? The only exception will be the connection between the CPU fans which are attached to the CPU cooler in a push/pull confirguration.
Looks like you'll need at least three more SATA cables.
For the fans, yes it is fine to have them connected to the PSU or you could use the 3 pin connectors straight into the sys_fan headers on the motherboard
Hope it helps
