I just bought a DZ68BC motherboard. It comes with SATA III and SATA II connectors.
In the box are 2 types of SATA cables: red (2) and transparent (4). The documentation doesn't state anything about the difference.
Is there a quality difference between these cables? (tried to google the type numbers, but no usefull hits)
Greetings Victor - Here is what Intel says is in the box. http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/dz68bc/sb/CS-032690.htm?wapkw=(dz68bc) This leaves open the question of which is SATA II and which is SATA III. They will both work for SATA II and, if you require SATA III cables, best to purchase them from a reputable dealer. Regards. Peter
