Buy a few extra... – SATA Power Cable Reviews

Pros:
Dirt cheap. Works.
Cons:
I broke 2 out of the 5 I bought.
Other:
They're a little cheaply made... I think I may have tried to plug one in upside down by mistake, and it snapped the sata connector in half. The other one, I plugged the molex connector in without straightening the pins and it pushed one of them out of the connector, and refused to stay put after that.
The molex side is really quite annoying to plug in, since the pins are not held in place very well and wiggle all over.
Bottomline:
Buy several of these, they're still a great deal despite being cheaply made.
Apply BULKRATE coupon when buying more than 3 and the price goes way down.
These are usually $5-$10 locally, so you can afford to buy half a dozen of these when you only need one or two.
