Hello everyone.
I decided to build a new basic computer. I configured one and got feedback from the board. Below is a link to the components.

Got the parts in and began assembly. My question has to do with the cabling. I have installed the Samsung SSD. I seem to have the 'data' cable that will connect the SSD to the motherboard but am thinking that I need an adapter of some kind.
My Antec 550 PSU has two cables.
  1. The large 24 pin cable that will go to the motherboard
  2. A cable that splits into two heads, each with four holes (see pic)
Can someone tell me how to use the second cable to power my Sata SSD?
Is there a standard adapter that connects the two?

Thanks in advance
Peter

The power cable for that drive comes directly from the PSU.
NOT the ones in your hand....SATA power connections.

There should be a plug on the PSU labeled SATA, and a cable identified for that. On that cable, there will be one or more flat things to plug directly into the SSD.
