Wiring question: Will it burn?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Apparently I was drunk modding while I made this sata power cable and ended up with a female connector at the tail. At the time I though "Sokay! I have a molex to male sata adapter somewhere!" and went on about sleeving it up. I just dug up the adapter and it's a female molex to male sata... which obviously won't plug into the female molex from the psu. So I rigged up this female/male/male molex. It should work no? I'd hate to blow something up. The wiring is solid. I'm just unsure about the adapter and well... all of it haha.
Thanks!

Yes it will work. just as long as you kept the wireing in the correct order on both sides of the sata and molex (I cant really tell but it seems that you have)

Nice job sleeving

if i were you i would have just used a 1 inch heatshrink to cover the HDD gap

An easy way to verify is to check from PSU source cable through your modified connection for pin to pin continuity and insure there are no shorts between voltage pins and ground pins. Only takes about 5 minutes.

There's no reason for it not to work; I just personally prefer having the fewest number of adapters since it looks a lot cleaner.

Thanks. I agree but it'll all be hidden otherwise I would have just done it right.

Nah! I'm already about 3 months into this build and am really close to finishing. The anticipation is already killing me bad enough. Besides it'll be well hidden.

Anyway.. just to be on the safe side I dug a hd out of a broken laptop a friend gave me a while back and tested it on that. Works perfectly.

@bleach Not at all!

Thanks everyone!
