ASRock Z68 Pro3 - SATA cables


I'm ordering all of my parts this week after 2 months of working weekends to pay for everything.

Since all the photos of the contents of the Mobo box look pretty empty, and all of my drives will be bare OEM drives, what SATA cables will I need ? Straight - Straight, or Straight- Right Angle ?

Thanks.

It only comes with 2, and the photo is too confusing to tell. It almost looks like 1 Straight/Straight and one Straight/Right Angle, that's why I posted the question.

I'll need 3 more cables.

After reading all the horror stories and docked "eggs" from user reports for most of the other mobo makers and their SATA layouts, I thought I'd like a "first hand" report of what works best for the Pro 3.
