ML115 and SC44GE, What Cable do I need to buy?

I own a proliant ML115 and I want to add a SC44GE Host Controller to it. I want to use this card for SATA, as it is supported in ESX. Where as the onboard SATA is not.

However when you order the card seperate it does not come with any cables. Does anyone know which cable I need to order? The one I need is the one to go from the cards internal SFF-8484 connection and then branch off to give me 4 SATA connections.

The HP website is very unclear and I tried ringing HP to find out but noone seemed to even know what the SC44GE Card was....

Cheers for any help

No, always look at the server Quickspecs, the controller is the same, but the hard disk backplane of the servers is different.
Usually in the server Quickspecs you have also the cables needed to use disc or tape controllers on that server.

Sorry about more questions.

What I dont understand is that it says :-

NOTE: The purchase of a SAS Storage Controller requires the purchase of HP SAS/SATA 4-Port Cable (P/N 430479-B21)

But if you look at the connector on the 2 storage controllers it recommends for the ML115 they both have different connectors.
