With SATA Revision 3.0 compliant devices now more popular than ever, SilverStone has created two suitable cables to match the higher bandwidth requirement with the CP07 (with 180° connector) and CP08 (with 90° connector). Unlike traditional SATA cables with metal clips that loose effectiveness with repeated usage due to scratching, the CP07 and CP08 achieves secure connection by utilizing precision designed and manufactured connector. Wrapped in attractive black sleeve and metallic layer for EMI protection, these new cables are great companions for running SATA 6Gb/s capable devices with optimum stability and style.

- The package includes 12 small screws for mounting up to two drives. Why 12 when eight would do? Eight of the screws have (small) flanges on the heads. Those work fine for the top SSD, but are too large to go in straight into the bottom SSD. Use the four screws without flanges for the bottom SSD and they will line up fine. Look at all the small screws and you'll see what I mean. There are also four larger screws for mounting the adapter into your case.
- There are side holes that allow a screwdriver to pass though to fasten down the drive. However, they are not wide enough for a (or at least my) magnetic ratchet screwdriver to pass through. They are not even large enough for the screws with the flanged heads to fit through easily. I used the rub-the-screwdriver-along-a-magnet-a-few-times trick to get the screws to stay on the tip of a non-magnetic screwdriver long enough to get them into the holes on the SSD. You can also tip the adapter sideways so you are pushing the screws up into the adapter (using gravity to hold the screw on the tip), but the magnet version worked better for me.
- The SATA III (SATA 6 Gbps) cables that came with my motherboard have 90° angle (L-shaped) connectors on one end and straight connectors on the other. The closeness of the SATA ports on the motherboard and the fact the motherboard sits nearly flush with the bottom (actually side) of the case meant the straight ends of the cables had to be used there. With both drives in the adapter, the two data ports on the drives line up and are very close. I could use the L-shape on the bottom SSD, but not the top one because there's just not enough clearance for the cable to bend out from the lower drive's cable. I ended up mounting the top SSD upside down so that the data ports and power ports line up on opposite sides. (There's no moving parts, so this should be fine). Doing that allowed both L-shaped cables to be used. It also made hooking up the power cables easier. If you have (or buy) SATA cables that are straight on both ends, this will not be necessary.
**UPDATE**I just figured I'd give a quick update on how these are working, in short excellent... I just bought another 6 for use in a home theater I am building for a friend, once again, 0 DOA, great transfer speeds and no connector issues... In this build they are connecting an LG Blu-ray, SSD, and 4 WD Red 3TB Drives with excellent results. While there may be cheaper options out there these cables are very high quality and have excellent transfer rates, they actually do seem to give higher transfer rates than the "stock" sata III cables included with the devices... I stand by my 5 star rating**
I gave this item 5 stars due to having no issues with the cables so far and for having 0 DOA out of the many I have ordered.
The issues above could be considered faults in the Dell rather than the Silverstone. It does fit well in a white box PC’s 3.5in bay. I ended up getting a 5.25 to 3.5in adapter I had on hand. It happened to have the same thread as an optical drive and matched the Dell shoulder screws.
I considered using the 3.5in caddies but they were full of drives (all 4 of them!). I could have eliminated one of the drives but the drive caddy used by Dell does not work with the center alignment. I discovered this when I was installing a B00G56ZNZU SABRENT 3.5-Inch to SSD / 2.5-Inch HDD Bay Drive Converter into a Dell Optiplex.
I want to be fair - the Silverstone adapter is very well made of well finished heavy steel. The screws were just right. In many applications where outside of Dell Optiplex or Precision systems it will work just fine. But if you are looking at Dell PC's, and there are a LOT of them out there, be aware of this adapter may have some incompatibility and if you use a Dell drive caddy be prepared to cut the handle.
Because it's really well made, even though I had a problem in my application I'm giving it 4 stars.
I hope this helps someone make an informed purchase in a similar situation.

However, I dont know how the locking mechanism works.
They look awesome though
Cons: Didn't come with any hardware, also blocks air passing over the bottom of the hdd.
