Last week, I received a Thermaltake F31 Suppressor case and ASRock Z97 Extreme6 mobo, and the cable (v.1) worked...up to a point. Three problems:
1) There's a slight crack in the plastic on near the end of one connector and the plastic is leaning in a tad, so getting a good connection on the pin underneath is tricky; not surprising, given how much I've had to disconnect and reconnect it;
2) more important for the long run, the JCAT connectors do not grab the Sata port solidly like standard connectors do; and
3) the JCAT connectors are very long, in fact too long for easy connection with some boards and cases, which often means having to bend the cable sharply. For instance, trying to get it connected on the bottom side of the Thermaltake, where SSDs are designed to go, there isn't enough room for the long connector without modifying the case, and maybe not even then. While trying, I broke the plastic protector around the Sata pins on my system SSD ( --------| ). After that, to make the JCAT work, I had to use Scotch tape and hang it outside the case. OTOH, a standard Sata connector with clamp grabbed the re-shaped pins solidly. To save time, I decided to buy another SSD, while I wait to hear what Samsung's repair shop says after looking at the first.
