When I first built this Bleeping Computer, I knew absolutely nothing about computers or internet forums or anything else. Because of that, I just bought a computer kit from Newegg that included most of the parts that I needed to build a functional computer. Now that I have been using my computer for a little over a year, I have learned a little bit about computers and computer forums, and I see that my computer is not built optimally. Because of that I would like to reconfigure some parts over the course of the next month or so and I am going to be asking some very specific questions here that might seem stupid to other people, but they have me stumped.
First, the kit I bought came with a PSU that has all of the wires integrated into the PSU. (Raidmax RX-700 AC) This PSU is a little too oversized for my needs and the wires are unsightly, so I want to buy an Evga Supernova 550 G2, which is fully modular. I think that for my needs a 550 watt PSU will be more efficient and I really think that I can make my computer look better with a fully modular PSU.
But my question concerns the SATA power cables that come with the new Evga. The specs state that this PSU can accommodate 9 SATA devices, but the unit only comes with 3 SATA power cables. Right now I need 6 SATA power cables to accommodate the accessories that I already have installed, so where do I buy the extra power cables. I have searched all over and I really do not know what they are even called. I guess that the power cables that I need have a 6 prong jack on one end and a SATA fitting on the other end. What is this cable called and where do I buy them?
Thanks in advance for any help and please refrain from calling me names, I know that this is a basic question.
