Hi all, I'm a new member here and have a question around installing the Nu Audio card. I just recently purchased a card and am trying to get it installed in my PC. It looks like I need a SATA cable. Does anyone have any recommendations for a SATA cable? Also, I read somewhere that the SATA cable has to be connected directly to the power supply. Is that the case. or can I use one of the peripheral slots from the motherboard to power the Nu Audio card? Thanks for your help.

    I don't have an extra SATA cable, so I will need to buy a new one. Any recommendations based on this scenario?

    Use a 5-line SATA cable.
    It may not work with 4 lines.

    Just a heads up it's not a SATA data cable but instead the cable from the Power Supply for a SATA drive. Most every PSU should have extras that are not used in most systems unless you use a lot of SATA drives. The connection the NU Audio uses is just to provide the audio card extra power.

    Use an Associates Code & SAVE 5% - 10% on your purchase. Just click on the associates banner to save, or enter the associates code at checkout on your next purchase. If you choose to use my code I want to personally say "Thank You" for using it.

    Mr. Hoggle is right, just SATA power, still cheap buy anywhere.

    Hi,
     
    Always make sure the cable is compatible with your Power Supply, if its an EVGA, we do carry replacement cables, you will have to check the compatibility chart to make sure.
