Quick question about sata and molex connectors.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Which produces more power or does it not matter. The reason I am asking is because instead of connecting another sata cable to my modular power supply I could just use a 4-pin molex to sata power adapter (since I have a bunch of molex connectors)

No difference at all/doesn't matter, using the adapter will be fine since hard drives use so little power

Do what works for you. I don't have much use for Molex connectors, so I use Molex to 2x SATA power adapters.
You should be fine!
