Sata to 4-pin Molex(IDE) Adapter


guys need a sata to molex 4 pin(IDE) adapter or cable. my psu has 4 sata connectors and three molex but all the 4-pin molex connectors are used up and need to still connect the cabinet fans and led display.
something like this
4-Pin Molex Output from sata power cable input, SATA to Molex Y-Cable from CoolDrives.com
only the black adapter will also suffice.
need this urgently
thanks

If you are ready for a little bit of modding, you won't need a converter at all...just lemme know.
Those things in the link are too expensive for something you can do for free.

Oh it won't get fried...basically, the Sata connector has one extra wire...so to convert it into a Molex, all you need to do is to replace the connector, and leave out the red wire.

Yeah, no problem. I don't have access to a cam ATM so I'll be using pics from the internet. Here's how you do it:
Standard Sata Power connector:



Standard Molex 4 Pin Power connector
i

If you notice carefully, a standard SATA power connector has an extra wire (typically orange on most standard power supply). This connector is used to supply an additional 3.3V input to the device. However, most devices in use today do not use this line at all, so basically, a SATA and a Molex connector are the same. However, the pin order is different for each. To match wires properly, we will use the reference images supplied above. I shall be referring to the wires as they appear in the images above. Wire Numbers will be from Left to right.
Note that a SATA Power cable has a pin identifier on the Orange wire while the Molex pin identifier is by reference image only.

To convert a SATA connector to the molex, all you have to do is cut off all the wires at about 3 inches from the connector, so that you can use it in the future.
Now, scavenge a molex male connector from somewhere. Align it according to the picture above.

Now, simply connect the same-colored wires together, solder and apply heat shrink/insulation. Insulate or tape off the extra wire so you don't short stuff accidentally.

If the wires are of different colors, refer to the pictures above.

Wires 2 and 4 from the SATA connector attach to wires 2 and 3 on the Molex

Wire 5 from the SATA connector attaches to wire 1 on the Molex

Wire 3 from the SATA connector attaches to wire 4 on the Molex.

There is no risk involved, provided you follow the instructions word to word. However, if you accidentally set fire to your house, or blow your computer, or cause WW3, I shall not be responsible.
Seriously, don't worry- I have done this a million times. Hope this was helpful.
