    Im just a bit curious as far as these cables are concerned. Are they all the very same, or are there any "premium" cables around?

    Very little difference in SATA cables. Some of the very cheapest, and I mean you'd have to find the cheapest ever 'might' be of 'slightly' inferior quality but pretty much any will do. I have read that some of the cheaper ones use 2 of something whereas better ones use of that thing (I believe it is to do with shielding) - hope that helps LOL! :D.

    I use the Akasa SATA-2 45cm Silver Data Cable (CB-053-GE) http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatalog/SATA_Cables.html As they look decent, and have small 'clip' things that make them a bit more secure. But other than that, there really isnt that much to differenciate SATA cables.
