    Neo Eco doesn't come with a power cable? I thought only Earthwatts had that.

    All other cables should be covered

    What all did you get? The picture is blur-tastic enough that I can't tell. The Z77 Pro3 only comes with 2 SATA cables; you'll obviously need extras if you have more than 2 SATA devices.

    The power cord is a standard NEMA 5-15P to IEC C13 lead, you probably have one laying around the house from some other electronics.

    If you also have a dvd drive then you need that additional SATA cable mfenn mentioned

    I'm sensing some scope creep. You know Bluray playback requires extra software and the drives are pretty expensive, right?

    In that case, you only have 2 SATA devices, so the included SATA cables are enough.
