I have an ASUS Rog Strix G531 and I was trying to install a 2.5in HDD into the slot to which I noticed I didn't have a cable to attach it to the motherboard.

Can someone help me to find a cable online, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Those cables are proprietary and available only from the manufacturer and are not included if that drive bay did not originally have a drive installed at the factory. You'll have to contact ASUS about price and availability.

So I would not be able to use a third party connector?

The cable used could be less proprietary then you think. Do you have a photo of the cable or at least the connector on the laptop?

The drive should have sata connections. But I don't know what your motherboard connections are.
You should probably contact Asus as suggested above.
