I cannot find the cables required for my SSD (Samsung 850 evo I believe it is), what kind of SATA cables would I need to buy to hook it up to my PC? I have a Z97-A motherboard and an evga 1200 watt powersupply if that makes any difference? I live in the UK so please only send UK links, thank you!

You're going to need a SATA 6Gbps cable(which should've been included with your motherboard) and you're going to need a SATA power connector from the PSU's end. Both of those cables, don't need to be purchased, so long as it was bundled with your PSU and board.

Just to be sure, mind sharing a pic or a link to your SSD?

The SATA power cable comes off your PSU.

A modern 1200W psu will have the cables you need. As stated already, your motherboard should have come with what you need.
Are you running a Cooker as well? That is a HUGE psu, only for people who like to run 6 GPUs and mine :)

The PSU belonged to my brother lol, hence the insane wattage. I don't know where the cables for them are, which is why I'm looking to buy new ones.
