I have an X99 Extreme11 and want to RAID 2X HGST Ultrastar C10K1800 hard drives.  The manual shows which ports to plug these drives into, but the motherboard did not come with the correct cables.  Will someone send me a link to cables I can use?  From my research, SAS connectors are not "keyed" like SATA connectors are, so while the motherboard side appears to be SATA pinout, I need a different cable for the drive side.

Not an easy task given all the cable variations, SAS 12gb/s, SAS 6GB/s MiniSAS etc. That is a SAS-3 12gb/s drive and you are connecting it to a SATA style connector so:
