Do you use the cables that come with your motherboard? Sata cables?
I am building a new setup here and I have the ASUS p5b-E and 2 WD 250g SATA II 3.0 gps. I was wondering how many of you use the included cables that come with the motherboard (i.e SATA cables). I have no idea if these cables are even rated for SATA II or if you should use them.

i dont use them but they work fine.i dont like how stiff they are and their harder to hide.i replaced mine with some easy to bend cables.

im not positive but i think these are the specific ones ive got.theyre much much easier to bend and the locking tabs are very useful.
svc has a pretty good selection but their shipping prices may be a little high.so you may want to shop around a little.

Yes I used the stock ones too. I have not noticed the stiffness. I just took the loop that was left over and stuck it behind the MOBO tray.#1Win72600k@4.5GHZ(Hyper212+)Msi P67 G65 16GB RAM evga560Ti

Here is a pretty good store for cabling. Plenty of shipping options too. They offer between 6 inch to 36 inch. Plus a nice variety of colors.

I like the Asus SATA cables - especially the right angle ones! When you get 6 cables per MoBo, they start to add up quick (I think I have like 18 of them ). Flexibility is not an issue, and you can easily force them to whatever arrangement you need IMO.
I also used the included cables that came with my Areca 1210 XOR RAID-5 card. They are a bit longer and also have right angle plug on one end. They work perfect, and their longer length allows very neat routing to the PCIe card.

Asus cables work , no need to waste any more money on some other brand cables.
