I agree as well. Powering multiple HDDs on a single molex rail is no problem. Used quite a few of those molex to 2x SATA power adapters before during the early days of SATA. Some of them are still running strong. The X-Connect dock is pretty much the same exact thing.

The only thing that I do worry about is powering a GPU on a molex rail. That to me, I see more of a risk than a couple HDD off the same connector.

Actually, I use a single SATA rail to power my HDD, SSD and OPTICAL drive, no issues.

It didn't burn up my hard drives but I also removed the adapter anyways! I would say to just get rid of it

Sorry stupid phone. Remove it. Save the hassle and worry. Not worth using the pcb board if you are already questioning it. I took mine out to be safe!

Interesting that CM has an alternate circuit board for the hotswap. Either they have had defects or complaints about the original design.

I get why they use molex though. Much easier to daisy chain it into the molex connectors the fans are using.

I would strongly recommend not exceding the CM max PSU length of 180mm or you may risk damage to x-dock.




This looks very interesting what your doing here. You took out that little bay for the ssd drives and dumped your pump in there. 3/4 od? Fittings?

People plugging in the molex connector backwards was the big one, so the new one has reverse voltage protection along with better surge supression and more capacitors. The layout of the SATA ports also made it very tight for people with large PSU's to use the cabling ports and the molex plug, so hence the 90 degree change and flexible molex connector. Still think it should be SATA power though,

Hello everyone. Just built this amazing little thing last night after a visit to my local micro center. Also some help from a friend. smile.gif Very Happy with this case.
