View Full Version : Whats the cable I need?
Oct 11, 2011, 06:42 PM
On one end it connects thru a 6-pin straight to the PSU, and the other end connects to "the cable that distributes the electricity to the hard drives". So it needs to be a 6-pin on one end and whatever it is that connects to .. Whatever that cable is called. Makes sense? :rolleyes: I know what it is when I see it, but theres like a million designations of PC cables, I want to get the right one, so I can add another 4 TB :rockout:
And don't bother asking me to check the cables that came with the mobo, they're all used up for GPU's and the other hard drives :cry:

Six pin is for gpu power, what you need is a molex to sata converter cable.

Maybe i saw wrong then. Yeah this looks familiar. http://www.kabelbutiken.com/y-kabel-5-25-hane-2xsata Seems a bit meh to actually ORDER that stuff, hopefully they sell it somewhere in town.

Seems you are referring to a cable for the modular PSU? But doesn't it include it?? :confused:

Well, if I did see right, yes there were three. But two of them are used for the GPU's and one for 4 HDD's via a cable I have yet to see anywhere else :s It's got 4 sata power connectors in succession (not sure about technical term?), with a single connector i'm not sure what it's called on the other end. But I have like 10 free molex females, so male molex-> sata power works as well. I'm not that confident about ordering them though, they seem a bit short. Will have a look at the local electronics store tomorrow. Thanks everyone though for quick response :)

This is from the Corsair site:

Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, address, phone number and your PSU model and we’ll be happy to help.

I'm to honest to ask for "replacement" cables, when I haven't actually lost anything. Good find though.
